There is now a reported estimate as to how long Rhea Ripley may be sidelined.

Yesterday, a report from PWInsider released which revealed that Rhea Ripley had suffered an injury during a backstage brawl with Liv Morgan on last week’s episode of Monday Night RAW. This caused alarm among fans and was later confirmed on last night’s show, as ‘The Eradicator’ had to relinquish the Women’s World Championship due to her injury status.

To provide an update on Ripley’s recovery timeline, Bryan Alvarez spoke on Wrestling Observer Radio to suggest that it may be 4-6 weeks before she regains mobility in her shoulder, and then it’ll likely be a further 3 months before we see Rhea back in the ring.

“She (Rhea Ripley) suffered an AC Joint sprain in the brawl with Liv Morgan last week on RAW, she was thrown into the wall, and boom. There goes the shoulder, and an injury like that probably 4-6 weeks to gain mobility and then 3 months to be back in action.”

Following the vacation of her championship, Ripley’s title reign clocked in at 380 days, and her absence will certainly be felt across WWE and their women’s division in the coming months. We continue to wish Rhea a speedy recovery and look forward to her eventual in-ring return.

As always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on Rhea Ripley’s injury status as soon as we hear more.
