Rhea Ripley was unable to retain the NXT Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 36. Now it seems it might be a while until she can get a rematch for the title.
According to a report by PW Insider, Rhea Ripley was forced to go back to Australia as her work visa expired. She will be absent for the next set of WWE television tapings.
Whoever is flying to Australia will be going through a two-week period of isolation. The country certainly is not taking any risks regarding the COVID-19 disease.
She returned to Australia in order to renew her visa. At this time it is unknown when she will be able to return to The United States.
Given the current state of the world, there is no known timetable for her return, but she given the different quarantines involved with international travel in each country, there is no real way for her to return in time for this week’s scheduled NXT tapings in Florida, which will cover multiple episodes of the USA Network series.
It was also said that her visa expiring might have had a part to play in Charlotte Flair winning the NXT Women’s Championship.
