WWE News: Bayley sets her sights on Rhea Ripley
Bayley has been out of action since July this year. She was set to challenge the then Smackdown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair for the title at Money in the Bank PPV on July 18, but an untimed knee injury took her out of action for at least 9 months.
It was a heartbreaking ACL tear on her right knee, which she got while training. WWE has stated that she will be out of action for the rest of the year but will hopefully return in time for Wrestlemania 38 at Dallas. Despite being so far off the action, Bayley posted a cryptic message that she wants to wrestle Rhea Ripley upon her return. Read the Tweet below,
“I can’t wait to kick the crap out of you Rhea”

WWE News: Bayley feuding with Rhea Ripley could amplify the latter’s career
Despite not ending up on the winning side at the Summerslam PPV, Rhea Ripley remains one of the top draws on the Red brand alongside Alexa Bliss, Asuka, and Charlotte Flair.
The former Raw Women’s Champion has largely feuded with Charlotte Flair and briefly with Asuka, ever since moving to the main roster. A feud with Bayley could be the start of something new for Rhea Ripley, and it could also help cement her legacy as one of the top female performers in WWE. Will this feud take place on Bayley’s return?- We will have to wait until Bayley’s return.
