At WrestleMania Backlash Ripley interfered in Edge’s match with AJ Styles to reveal herself as the latest addition to The Judgement Day alongside the WWE Hall of Famer and former United States Champion Damian Priest.
The new member didn’t go down too well with Edge’s wife, fellow Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix who has been questioning her husband’s actions ever since his turn to the dark side. Upon Ripley’s addition the former Women’s Champion tweeted the message ‘not her’ alongside a crying emoji, showing her disproval of Ripley’s new direction.
Speaking with 99.5 WDQ, Ripley addressed the tweet and stated that if Beth would have to get used to the idea or be prepared to face Rhea in the ring, in what would be a dream match for the 25-year-old.
I haven’t spoken to Beth, but I have been seeing a lot of posts on Twitter. I don’t know if she’s very happy about me joining Judgment Day.
Beth is gonna have to put her emotions aside and be on our side, pretty much, or she’s gonna have to fight me… Beth Phoenix is my dream opponent and really, if she disagrees with what we’re saying, I wouldn’t mind stepping in the ring with her and settling it once and for all.
Beth was last seen on WWE TV earlier this year when she teamed with husband Edge to defeat Miz and Maryse at January’s Royal Rumble. However, we are yet to see The Glamazon since Edge’s turn on Styles and creation of his new stable.
The Judgement Day’s current issues lie with the team of AJ Styles, Finn Balor and Liv Morgan, who have aligned with each other in recent weeks to try and fend off Edge’s faction. Sparking speculation that we could see a six-person tag match added to next month’s Hell in a Cell Premium Live Show.
