Rhea Ripley Calls WWE's Survivor Series Booking Of Nikki A.S.H "Disrespectful"
A disappointed Ripley
While Rhea Ripley was a member of Team Raw for the Women's Survivor Series Elimination Match at the November 21 pay-per-view, the other half of the Women's Tag Team Champions in Nikki A.S.H was nowhere to be seen, with The Nightmare fighting alongside Bianca Belair, Carmella, Queen Zelina and Liv Morgan instead.
Ripley spoke about the decision to not have A.S.H on the team ahead of Survivor Series and the former NXT Women's Champion admitted she thought it was "disrespectful."
"I think I am more disappointed than Nikki is because she's such a positive person. Yes, I know she's upset. But I am very upset for her because I know that she's worked so incredibly hard for everything that she's accomplished. She's been in this business for a lot longer than I have. To not have her on the team is a little bit disrespectful," Ripley told SportsKeeda.
"To have one-half of your tag team champions on the team and not the other half, it seems a little bit silly to me. We obviously work well enough together to be champions, so why not half Nikki on the team with us? I think we could really make some magic. I'm just disappointed, I really am."
After missing out on Survivor Series, things only went from bad to worse for Nikki A.S.H as she and Ripley dropped the Women's Tag Team Championship to Queen Zelina and Carmella the next night on Raw.
