Rhea Ripley Back To Australia Due To Visa Issues, Return Unknown

According to PWInsider, former WWE NXT Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley will not be appearing on NXT TV in the near future as she will not be on hand for this week’s scheduled TV Tapings. Ripley returned to Australia yesterday as her work visa has expired and she has returned home to Australia as part of the process to get the visa renewed.

Given the current state of the world, there is no known timetable for her return, but given the different quarantines involved with international travel in each country, there is no real way for her to return in time for this week’s scheduled NXT tapings in Florida, which will cover multiple episodes of the USA Network series. It’s quite possible that the timing of the visa is what led to Charlotte Flair winning the NXT Women’s title at Wrestlemania.
