An update on Rhea Ripley.
On Thursday night, former NXT UK Women's Champion alarmed fans when she posted a photo of herself at a 24 Hour Fitness wearing a walking boot. Ripley captioned the photo, which you can see below, "What's your excuse?"
According to Squared Circle Sirens, Ripley is dealing with a minor sprain, but it is not considered serious. The report goes on to say that she is not expected to miss much time. She was reportedly having lingering issues with her leg and decided to get it checked out.
