The NXT Women Champion was supposed to be appearing on WWE Backstage this week, but with the show being temporarily suspended, the Aussie Superstar will have plenty of time to heal up.
On this week’s edition of NXT, Ripley took a beating from 2020 Women’s Royal Rumble winner The queen Charlotte Flair, who locked the champion in figure four around the ring post.
Continuing her attack, the Queen stomped on Ripley’s throat with her high heel, and the NXT Women’s Champion took to Instagram to share a picture of the damage. In a caption, Ripley joked that the mark looks like a surgical scar, saying that she didn’t undergo neck surgery, but instead got a high-heeled boot to the throat.
It’s clear from the image that Flair’s boot left quite the mark on Ripley’s neck, but we doubt that this will keep the NXT Women’s Champion down for long, as she prepares for the biggest match of her career at WrestleMania 36.
