We see a replay of Edge Vs. AJ Styles from last night’s WrestleMania Backlash. Edge got the win thanks to Rhea Ripley, the newest member of The Judgement Day. Edge, Ripley and Damian Priest make their way to the ring and Edge is sporting a new haircut that looks very similar to Ripley’s swept-back fade.

The Judgement Day are in the ring and Edge says they formed because they were tired being sheep. What did being a sheep get him? A spot in the Hall of Fame? He’s bigger than the Hall of Fame. There isn’t a part of him that hasn’t had a surgery and it left him on the sideline for nine years. He came back, played the role again, and what happened? The ugly fans got on their cheap phones and Tweeted crap about him.

Priest says nothing or no-one can touch The Judgement Day. Individually, they’re better than all of the rest but together they’re something else. They were incredible when it was just him and Edge, but imagine how much better they’re going to be now that they’ve added an instrument of brutality. Ripley says joining The Judgement Day was the easiest decision of her life.

Rhea saw Edge and Priest change for the better and she wanted that for herself. She’s done singing autographs at the airport for kids that say they want to be like her when they grow up. The same kids sell her autographs on eBay. She’s done being used, but she has some unfinished business. Liv Morgan will no longer ride her coattails.

Edge says this group is all about unrealised potential. Ripley and Priest are his saints of faith, two souls that needed a rudder and he is that rudder. Edge says he approached Ripley a few weeks ago and told her that Morgan was holding her back. He looked at Ripley and he saw a juggernaut that could run over anyone but was content in the slow lane. now she has been unleashed. But his movement is not done, they aren’t finished and they want more souls. Liv Morgan interrupts.

The match starts and they hockey fight. Ripley shoves Liv back and headbutts her. Ripley lifts and throws Morgan across the ring, then delivers a shoulder tackle in the corner. Rhea with another biel, then another shoulder tackle in the corner. Ripley lifts Morgan onto the top rope and punches her but Morgan hits her with a hurricanrana.

Morgan lands a few strikes but Ripley catches her with a big boot and scores a near-fall. Ripley mounts Morgan and delivers some big right hands. Edge is loving this. Liv slaps her, so Ripley slaps her right back. Ripley slams Liv into the mat a few times, then applies a bodyscissors. Liv tries to fight up but gets knocked down with a clothesline.

Ripley pins with one foot but Morgan kicks out. Ripley puts a boot on Liv’s back and stands on her. Ripley lifts her up and wants the Riptide but Morgan slides down the back and lands a flurry of punches and kicks. Liv with a bulldog and a springboard recoil for a near-fall. Ripley fights back and hits a kick to the face, then applies the Prism Trap and Liv taps.

After the match Edge and Priest get in the ring and pose with Ripley. Edge gives Ripley a nod, so Rhea grabs Liv and applise the Prism Trap again. Liv screams and taps out but Edge gets down and mocks her tapping out. Ripley eventually throws her aside but then out comes Finn Balor with AJ Styles at his side. Balor will be facing Priest after the break.

Balor wants a dive to the outside but Ripley pulls Priest out of the way and Balor stops. Edge then Spears Finn.

As soon as the match ends, Styles attacks Edge and they brawl. Styles gets the better and then throws hands with Priest until Ripley stands between them, allowing Edge to jump AJ from behind. Edge hits a Spear at the same time that Priest hits a sweep. The Judement Day pose together.

WINNER: RHEA RIPLEY

Super Brutality make their entrance to send us to break.

Super Brutality are interviewed in the ring.

They have an announcement, and Nikki ASH says that’s a challenge to Carmella and Zelina Vega for a rematch. Ripley gets in her ear and says that’s not what they talked about, and Nikki cuts her off and says everything’s fine, but Rhea says she doesn’t want to talk about this out here.

ASH says she wants to talk right now, and claims that once they get the tag titles back everything will be okay. Ripley fends off attempts to claim that she thinks she’s better than Nikki, but Nikki’s not having it and claims that she was the one doing Rhea a favor by sticking together.

Ripley says she never said she was better in the ring and ASH says she was talking about herself. Rhea gets hot and offers a hand to shake, saying it’s goodbye for now. Nikki says fine, she doesn’t want to be her teammate anymore, but she can’t shake her hand until Ripley looks her in the eye and tells her she still believes in her.

Rhea says she’s always believed in her and always will, and with her or against her, she’ll never stop believing in her and really hopes that they can be friends. Nikki asks if she means it and Ripley hugs her close. ASH poses on the ropes, Rhea offers a fist bump after and Nikki attacks her and beats her down!

She leaves the ring and says superheroes don’t need any friends while she stands tall on the ramp.

The traditional women’s Survivor Series elimination tag match pitting Team Raw (Rhea Ripley, Carmella, Queen Zelina, Liv Morgan and Bianca Belair) against Team SmackDown (Toni Storm, Shotzi, Shayna Baszler, Natalya and Sasha Banks) took to the squared circle next.

A distraction surrounding Carmella’s mask allowed Storm to roll up The Most Beautiful Woman in WWE and score the first elimination of the contest.

Dissension between Shotzi and Banks threatened the cohesion of Team SmackDown while Baszler battled Ripley back inside the squared circle. The action broke down, with the women each hitting signature offense before culminating in Banks and Belair pairing off.

The WrestleMania 37 opponents captivated the fans with an exchange that saw The EST of WWE trapped in the Bank Statement. Belair fought out and delivering a fallaway slam. The competitors picked up where they left off on wrestling’s grandest stage before The EST launched teammate Queen Zelina at Banks for a near-fall.

After Baszler and Shotzi refused to tag in, Storm tagged her partner and proceeded to do away with Zelina.

Morgan entered the ring for Raw and scored an impressive fall by pinning Storm following Oblivion.

Baszler applied the Kirifuda Clutch to down Morgan, Shotzi followed with a splash and Banks eliminated her following a headbutt.

The numbers disadvantage for Raw became even worse as Baszler dropped Ripley, leaving Belair on her own against four of the original five SmackDown competitors.

Winner: Team RAW

 WWE’s Rhea Ripley Talks Super Brutality Origins, Rejoining Raw, Dragon Ball Z, and More
WWE’s Rhea Ripley Talks Super Brutality Origins, Rejoining Raw, Dragon Ball Z, and More   October 10th, 2021    Posted by: Nadia Cooke  /   Interviews

WWE’s Rhea Ripley is having the time of her life at the moment as part of the Super Brutality duo alongside Nikki A.S.H. Rhea and Nikki are currently ruling the Tag Division as WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, and they will continue that rule on Monday Night Raw thanks to night one of the WWE Draft. While Rhea and Nikki couldn’t be more different in their in-ring personas, they compliment each other quite well, and ComicBook.com had the chance to talk to Ripley all about how their Tag Team started, what led to the Super Brutality title, how she feels about being on Raw, and even the reveal of who Nikki would be in the Dragon Ball Z universe.

To kick things off we had to talk about the Super Brutality title and ask where it came from. The title quickly resonated with fans, though it caught Ripley by surprise a bit.

“To be honest, I have no idea. I have absolutely no clue whatsoever. She said it on TV, and I was like, what? Okay, sure. Because I hadn’t heard of it before that Monday Night Raw happened,” Ripley said. “I had never heard it before unless some fan posted it on Twitter and someone read it and was like, oooh, that sounds good. Let’s use that tonight. I don’t know.”

In fact, it kind of mirrored the origin of their tag team and how that came about, which wasn’t planned but just kind of became a thing over time.

“The tag-team between Nikki and I, it sort of grew. We kept getting booked in things week in week, and I guess it sort of happened because no one told me it was a thing until it was a thing,” Ripley said. “Yeah. I’m not complaining. I’m having the time of my life.”

They bring the best out of each other, both in and outside of the ring, and Ripley hasn’t smiled this much in quite some time.

“She definitely brings the brighter side out of me a little bit. She’s got me cracking smiles on TV and I don’t know what the hell’s going on. I’m not someone that really likes to smile when I’m down to business, but she always seems to bring the fun and the positivity, and I think that’s what she’s all about. And that’s one thing that I really do love about her. She tries to bring the positivity out of me, and it’s something that I have definitely locked down deep, deep inside of me, but it’s slowly creeping out and I do appreciate her for that because it’s making me enjoy life and everything.” As for Nikki, Ripley hopes she’s given her some additional edge, pushing her to bring out that inner brutality. “And with Nikki, I’m just trying to bring the brutality out of her, trying to bring out a little bit of darkness. I’m hoping that she gets a little bit more grungy in the ring, I want to say. I want her to stand up for herself, and I think she can. Seeing how she handled herself with Charlotte over those few months where she had the title and we were having those matches, I know it’s there and I want her to bring it out and I want her to go mental one day and beat someone up,” Ripley said.

While Ripley didn’t plan on being a part of another Tag Team, she’s enjoyed it quite a bit so far. “I’m really enjoying it, I really am. I’ve always been someone that’s loved tag wrestling. I haven’t changed too much mentally or physically about myself, I’m just going with the flow,” Ripley said.

“And it’s honestly so wild, especially knowing that this tag team formed in such a weird way and sort of just happened, in my eyes. One day we were a tag team. I think it’s wild that we’re holding the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships,” Ripley said. “That’s something that I didn’t think I would be able to hold onto this early in my career. Especially with someone like Nikki, it was a bit of a shock to me.”

During Night 1 of the WWE Draft, it was revealed that Rhea and Nikki will be staying on Monday Night Raw, and when Ripley initially moved from NXT she debuted on the Raw brand. There was a point where a SmackDown debut was talked about, but Raw quickly won out.

“At the very, very start I heard both. I think I traveled to one or two SmackDowns because it was in Tampa so I just had to drive there, so I think I went to one or two of them. But then pretty early on, I heard that it was Raw so I just kept going to Raw until eventually I got booked and stopped eating cookies and catering,” Ripley said.

As for which brand she was hoping to be on this time around, the Red Brand was at the top of her wishlist, but she does look forward to joining the Blue Brand at some point down the line.

“I think I look better in Red, to be completely honest. I love SmackDown and one day I do want to go to SmackDown because I want to be a Grand Slam Champion, but right now I think my placement is on Raw,” Ripley said. “And also, with this draft, there are so many girls on SmackDown that I haven’t worked yet, but I know that it’s all going to be jumbled anyway, so if I go to SmackDown they might not be there anyway. And also, I feel like on Raw we get more time to showcase our abilities, which is something that I’m always there for, where on SmackDown I feel like there’s limited time because it’s only two hours where Raw is three.”

Plus, as Women’s Tag Team Champions, she gets to bounce between both, so it’s a win-win. “Yeah, exactly. I’m going to be going to both anyways, so at the moment I don’t really mind which one I’m on,” Ripley said.

Now, the last time we talked to Ripley she mentioned she wanted to create some Android 18 Dragon Ball Z gear to follow up her stunning gear from WrestleMania, so we had to see how that was coming along.

“I honestly, I haven’t been thinking about it too much, but it’s just so hard to picture how everything is going to look because it is such a random piece of clothing that she wears. I’m like, I don’t know how to put that into my gear and make it look cool without having random stripes everywhere and denim. I don’t know how to work it so I gave up on it a little bit, but you did remind me just then I have to start thinking about that again because I want to do it one day, I really want to,” Ripley said.

The good news is that the WWE Universe has shown n multiple occasions how they can spot even the smallest reference to a franchise or character in superstar gear, so fingers crossed this one finally happens.

Speaking of Dragon Ball, Ripley has said that Android 18 is the character she’s most like in the franchise. So the question is, who represents Nikki?

Ripley said “Oh, who’s the person that… That’s difficult. Who would it be?”

Also, no pressure, since the fanart is going to fly in when the choice is made.

“I know, I know. Oh my gosh. I want to say that she’s a lot like Gohan, especially when he was in his Superman stages,” Ripley said. “Yeah, there you go, guys. Start making it. Put me as Zeno really angry in the back while she’s being…what was it? Saiyaman, Saiyaman, that’s what it was.”
