The Australian is a top star in the company, and losing her belt won’t hurt her career. It may even give her more time to develop storylines with the Judgement Day.
Who Will Take It From Her
There are many exciting options when thinking about who she could drop the belt to. The first person who comes to mind is Liv Morgan, who has been off TV for some time now. The way they will set the story up is that Ripley caused her an injury, which meant she had to sit out of competition. It could set up a Royal Rumble win for the former women’s champion. Becky Lynch is coming off one of the better years of her career. Furthermore, a matchup with Ripley is inevitable. Both women are two of the biggest names in the company today. It will be great to see them clash in the ring. Many other big names could take the belt off Ripley, and it will be great to see what WWE does at the Royal Rumble.
