Nia Jax was hinting at going after Rhea Ripley for months before her WWE return. She did the same on September 11th when she intervened in the title match between Rhea Ripley and Raquel Rodriguez. Jax first attacked Raquel Rodriguez to help Ripley win the match. But she later attacked Ripley before delivering a Bonzai drop to end the show.

It led to Ripley missing a few weeks of wrestling as she was left with bruised ribs, as stated by Michael Cole. But Mami’s ‘Dirty Dom’ informed everyone on September 18th show that Ripley did not forget Jax. Ripley did the same when she returned for the October 2nd show.

This rivalry goes back to August 2021 when they faced each other in a singles match. Ripley won the match via a surprise roll-up before she sneaked from behind to deliver a Riptide to Nia Jax. ‘The Irresistible Force’ had this in mind while she was preparing for her return.

In an Interview with Bill Apter on August 11th, she revealed that she would take her revenge on Rhea Ripley. She said, “Rhea Ripley, your Dom Dom is not going to be able to help you, honey. I am going to get Payback.” As of now, WWE has confirmed her match against Raquel Rodriguez on the RAW show next week.
