According to a recent report by Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer forum, Rhea Ripley is still in Orlando, despite initial reports that she has returned to Australia after her work visa expired.
Early reports suggested that Ripley was in Australia and that the expiration of the visa was the reason for his defeat at the NXT Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 36. However, the Meltzer report suggests that Flair simply won because she would have helped NXT to increase his grades.
As for Ripley’s location, Meltzer noted that she was still in Orlando., And her Instagram stories seem to suggest that this is true. Currently, it is unknown whether or not Ripley will be released in the future, as her expiring visa may be true, but due to the many problems with COVID-19, she is not yet able to leave the country. We’ll be sure to update the story as we go along.
