Riott was recently released from WWE last week after four years with the company and three-and-a-half years on the main roster. Baszler was not fully involved with the company until 2020 while Ripley officially joined the RAW brand in early 2021.
Russo spoke up and discussed Riott’s release with Dr. Chris Featherstone on Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Writing With Russo. He stated that Ripley and Baszler may have overshadowed and played a part in WWE releasing the former Riott Squad leader.
Russo stated the following on behalf of the matter: “All of a sudden, you’ve got Ruby Riott, who’s got a very, very, very unique look,” Russo said. “But then, you make Shayna Baszler into a monster-looking female, you make Rhea Ripley. And now, all of a sudden, you’ve got three girls that fit into that same category. Somebody’s gotta be the odd one out.”
Of course, this is not proof of much. This is simply an opinion of Vince Russo.
Special thanks to Sportskeeda for the rundown.
