Women’s Tag Team champion Rhea Ripley has reported a gear bag containing her WWE gimmick and title belt as missing.
The Nightmare has taken to Twitter for help in finding her lost bag, which seems to have been stolen in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
She has also called for supporters to be diligent when online browsing in case any of her gear is being listed for sale.
“My MosherZ of Albuquerque I know this is a stretch but, if any of you have seen a black travel suitcase around Office Boulevard & Montaño rd please hold onto it and let me know,” Ripley tweeted. “It has all my gear in it, including my title. Cheers!”
Ripley’s iconic leather get up and spiked jacket have been a huge part of her identity as Raw Women’s Champion and part of the Tag Team Women’s Championship-winning duo.
Since her initial tweet reporting her gear as missing, a Twitter account which has since been suspended, posted about allegedly finding the bag and claiming they would be selling the contents.
User @KYLIESALLURE tweeted: “Today I was in Albuquerque and found a suitcase. It had a top with chains, pants which were red and black, and a jacket with spikes which said “rhea ripley” on it. There was also a belt which was white and gold. It says womens tag team championship. I’m selling them! Dm me.”
This could well be just a desperate attempt at grabbing some temporary social media fame from the anonymous user. However, it still doesn’t give Ripley much of a chance of getting her things back.
It seems Ripley has lost hope of being reunited with her belt and iconic wrestling gimmick, as she posted a photo of her alongside WWE fans with the caption “Gonna miss this gear tbh.”
The Nightmare claimed the Women’s Tag Team Championship title for the first time last month, alongside new partner Nikki A.S.H. The two dethroned former champions Tamina and Natalya during their title clash on Monday Night Raw.
