Whether it’s bleeding from her nose or losing two of her four nose rings at Payback, the last few days have been tough for the champ. Unfortunately for her, it’s only about to get worse.

For those unversed, Kelley and Ripley have had a storyline relationship that has been largely kept to social media posts. It all started in February after the two hinted at a link-up. Kelley revealed how she doesn’t mind getting bench pressed by Mami and how she enjoys her company. But Ripley moved on quickly as she found an interest in Samantha Irvin. She even called Irvin her girlfriend while tagging Kelley on TikTok.

However, the interviewer reciprocated by doing a photoshoot with Zelina Vega, prompting Mami to type “You can’t erase or replace me.” The two eventually reconciled, hinting at a reunion in the future, after their backstage video went viral. Unfortunately for Mami, it now seems like she has some strong competition from her own countryman, Grayson Waller.

According to Ripley’s post on X, she has hinted at a war, after Waller mentioned her in a post and shared a screenshot of Kelley messaging him and calling him his favorite Aussie.

Not just that, the post has the entire conversation of how Kelley stated she wanted the Waller rub and that he’s her favorite Aussie. Though this is shocking news for Ripley, Kelley, however, has refuted these allegations by calling Waller a “liar.”

Kelley or Waller? Who’s telling the truth?

It all started at Payback, after Waller’s segment with Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso. After getting super kicked by Uso, Kelley interviewed the NXT star backstage. The interview concluded with him asking her to not DM him.
