Rhea Ripley not on WWE Raw, original plans changed



The big heel turn that many fans were expecting will have to wait at least another week.

It was announced during WWE Monday Night Raw that Rhea Ripley was not at the show because she was "in protocol." That sounds COVID-related but that was not outright said by Jimmy Smith. Ripley was scheduled to team with Liv Morgan against Women's Tag Team Champions Sasha Banks and Naomi.

Naomi won the match in quick fashion but this was expected to be the beginning of Ripley's heel turn. On last week's show, Ripley walked out on Morgan but they patched things up and then the match was set up for this week.
