Wrestlers are no strangers to receiving slightly odd requests from fans, but Rhea Ripley wasn’t prepared for one particular fan at a recent live event.
At the event in Mexico, AJ Styles teamed with Rey Mysterio and Raquel Rodriguez to defeat Finn Balor, Damian Priest and Rhea Ripley, as Dominik Mysterio watched on from outside.
Footage has now emerged online of a slightly surreal interaction between a fan, Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio.
“He Told Me To Spit In His Face!” – Rhea Ripley
In the short clip Ripley can be heard calling the fan a “dirty, dirty little boy,” before explaining to Dominik that he had asked her to spit on his face.

The match was only Ripley fifth in-ring appearance since June. In fact, the star has only wrestled on television once since joining Judgment Day back in May, and that match came on the October 18th episode of NXT where she defeated Roxanne Perez.
During her time as enforcer for the group, the star has been compared to WWE legend Chyna who formed part of DX and performed as a bodyguard for Triple H.
During an interview with Inside The Ropes’ own Kenny McIntosh, Ripley admitted that she loved the comparisons and was excited to be performing in a similar role.
“You don’t really see many groups with inter-genders, you know. So to be in a group with the boys, and not only just in the group, but sort of be like the muscle of the group as well. It’s wild to think, I’m very excited that I could be one of the first in a while.
I sort of get compared to Chyna a lot, which I love, I love that. People keep making edits, and I think they’re absolutely hilarious. I did like Chyna, I thought she was an icon. and she didn’t fit in, which was great. Like, she was so different to everyone. She was muscley and just, she was beautiful. The others were beautiful, too. I’m not saying that they weren’t. But she was beautiful in a different way.”
Rhea Ripley and Judgment Day will be back in action at WWE Crown Jewel on November 5th when Balor, Priest and Mysterio team up to take on AJ Styles, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows.
