Report: WWE Hoping To Have Rhea Ripley Back On TV By SummerSlam

WWE hope to have Rhea Ripley back in the mix for the build to SummerSlam.

WWE are hoping to have Rhea Ripley involved on-screen ahead of SummerSlam, according to a report by Fightful Select.

The report stresses that WWE would be willing to use Ripley in a non-wrestling capacity if she wasn't ready to wrestle by the time SummerSlam rolls around. It states:

"WWE sources had indicated that they have things constructed that Ripley can slide in and return to the program whenever she’s ready, even in a non-wrestling capacity. There have already been discussions internally about her being involved in the World Title program upon her return, as that would be logical considering where she left off. However, a WWE source that Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful spoke with said that the story available at the time of her return will dictate what programs she’s in, as many creative decisions have been made in her absence that still involve her."

One would expect Rhea to be involved in the ongoing storyline between Dominik Mysterio and Liv Morgan upon her return, and she has been consistently mentioned by members of her Judgment Day stable since being off-screen.

Ripley was injured in April during a backstage segment with Liv Morgan. The incident forced her to vacate the Women's World Championship, which was then won by Becky Lynch, and has since been won by Morgan herself.
