Let's take a look at the stories in more detail.
#1. Rhea Ripley does not appreciate R-Truth trying to join the Judgment Day
The Judgment Day have found themselves hounded by R-Truth over the last couple of weeks, and the star has somehow convinced himself that he's a member of the faction. He's gone so far as to change his profile picture to wearing photoshopped Judgment Day attire.
The fans want the faction to let him in, but Rhea Ripley is adamant that no addition is taking place.
Finn Balor had put the picture on his Instagram, to which Rhea Ripley rolled her eyes in the comments and put the "Woman gesturing no" emoji. Check it out below.
#2. WWE star Braun Strowman's leg is 15% paralyzed
The Monster Among Men recently opened up on his recovery and how he is doing now. The star admitted that he was going to have to be more careful than before thanks to the surgeries, but that he was used to doing that as his left leg was 15% paralyzed and he still wrestled with it in WWE.
"I’ll be a little more cautious thinking because now that I have some hardware and stuff like that. But at the end of the day, I don’t know, I’m crazy. I’ve worked around the injuries. As I said earlier, my left leg is 15% paralyzed and it has been my entire career. I don’t make excuses. I get it done. So we’re going to get it done."
