Rhea Ripley responds to Becky Lynch's title win.

On the April 22 episode of WWE Raw, Becky Lynch won the WWE Women's World Championship by emerging victorious in a battle royal for the vacant title. She won the gold by last eliminating Liv Morgan. Rhea Ripley relinquished the title due to injury on the April 15 episode of WWE Raw, not long after she beat Lynch to retain the championship at WrestleMania XL.

Ripley took to Twotter/X after Lynch's victory and wrote that she was the forever runner-up and the interim champion.

Even before WWE Raw went on the air, Ripley responded to a post about the battle royal by saying that she could not be erased or replaced.

As of this writing, there is no word on when Rhea Ripley will return to the ring. Fightful will provide more information as it becomes available.
