After weeks away due to injury, Rhea Ripley returned to Monday Night Raw and reunited with The Judgment Day.
Though she was originally scheduled to face Bianca Belair at Money in the Bank, it was announced on the June 20th episode of Monday Night Raw that the former Raw Women’s Champion wasn’t medically cleared to compete. Ripley had previously shown off a dental injury on social media, though it’s unclear whether she was injured at Hell in a Cell or during her match on the following night’s Raw.
In response to a fan on social media, Rhea Ripley confirmed that she was dealing with a brain injury on top of having undergone dental surgery.
On the July 25th episode of Monday Night Raw, Ripley’s Judgment Day teammates Finn Balor and Damian Priest took on the pair of Dominik and Rey Mysterio in tag team action. The Mysterios were victorious on the 20th anniversary of Rey Mysterio’s WWE debut, and after the match, they continued to celebrate backstage with friends and family.
Rey’s daughter Aalyah gave him a gift, which was revealed to be his old wrestling gear inspired by The Phantom that he wore in his match against Eddie Guerrero at Halloween Havoc in 1997.
However, the celebration was cut short when Rhea Ripley walked into the party and proceeded to attack Dominik Mysterio, drawing his father Rey into the path of destruction by her teammates Finn Balor and Damian Priest. The three members of The Judgment Day looked pleased as they reunited and laid waste to the family they’ve been fighting for weeks.
