Rhea Ripley leaving NXT and moving to main roster

In addition to losing Damian Priest, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer is also reporting that NXT is losing Rhea Ripley as the former NXT Women’s champion is moving to the main roster.

Meltzer noted that Ripley’s loss on Wednesday against Raquel Gonzalez in the last woman standing match was a way to write her off NXT for good. NXT stars moving to the main roster typically end up doing the honors before making their debut on Raw or Smackdown.

The 24-year-old Australian Superstar has been working for WWE since 2017 and was the inaugural NXT UK Women’s champion, becoming the first-ever female Australian to win a title in WWE. After dropping the NXT UK Women’s title, she moved to NXT in 2019 and also won the title there. Ripley became the first NXT star to have a singles match at WrestleMania when last year she defended her NXT Women’s title against Charlotte Flair.
