Rhea Ripley, affectionately known as “The Eradicator” in some circles, is not just your average WWE superstar. A titan in her own right, she has crafted a reputation for herself as one of the top female WWE wrestlers of her time. A culmination of raw talent, unyielding determination, and a remarkable devotion to the world of professional wrestling, Ripley has etched her name and persona deep into the hearts of WWE fans worldwide.
This week saw the fiery return of Mami on WWE television after a brief hiatus, creating ripples among fans and fellow wrestlers alike. She returned to grace the WWE scene on the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, and unsurprisingly, Ripley owned the ring like she never left, shining on NXT as well.
Ripley’s return was not a quiet one, but then again, in the world of pro wrestling, what is? The Eradicator, as she’s known to her fans, was quick to demonstrate her dominance in the ring, making it clear that her passion and fighting spirit remained unfazed. Furthermore, she played a pivotal role in paving the way for Dominik Mysterio to regain the NXT Championship this week.
However, during her thrilling NXT performance, Ripley drew attention for an unexpected reason. In a raw, unfiltered interaction with the fans in attendance, Ripley was caught directing a profanity-laced retort to a fan. Social media footage spilling over from the event includes Ripley using the Spanish expletive, ‘mama verga’ in her heat of the moment exchange, which translates to a heavy English obscenity.
WWE fandom is left divided after this incident, some seeing it as a mere slip of the tongue, others branding it as misconduct unbecoming of a WWE Superstar, leaving them eagerly awaiting what next steps the WWE management decides to take.
In more focused wrestling news, Ripley is back in the ring and revving to revive her feud with the formidable Nia Jax. This comes after Jax took Ripley out on live WWE television last month, a grudge that she won’t forget anytime soon.
As the WWE management mulls over the booking of their renewed feud in the subsequent weeks, viewers are left on the edge of their seats. Until the next face-off, the burning question remains – was the use of such language in line with Ripley’s reputed character or a misplaced jibe? What do you think about Ripley’s return so far? Some may ask – is she your current favorite WWE Superstar? Join us as we continue to follow her journey, and sound off in the comments with your thoughts and predictions.
