There was a heel turn this week on WWE Monday Night Raw.
During an in-ring interview, Sarah Schreiber acknowledged that the team of Rhea Ripley and Nikki A.S.H. appears to be on its last legs. Nikki announced that she and Rhea will challenge for the Women’s Tag Team Titles again but Rhea was not on board with that because she had planned to enter the Women’s Royal Rumble match.
Nikki accused Rhea of thinking she is the better one of the team and she said that she did her a favor and stayed by her side. Rhea tried to leave the ring but Nikki accused her of walking out on her.
Rhea offered to shake and agree to split up but Nikki refused. They hugged but it was a swerve because Nikki brutally attacked Rhea with punches.
So after months of teasing that Rhea would turn, it was Nikki who made the turn. It’s unclear if she will drop the superhero character or if she will continue with it but in a darker direction.
