Rhea Ripley was eviscerated in October when her luggage went missing, including her WWE’s Ring Gear, Women’s Tag Team Championship and more – and now she’s opened up to the whole ordeal.

The Nightmare, who has since lost the titles as she and Nikki ASH were beaten by Carmella and Queen Zelina last month, was devastated when a bag containing her wrestling outfits and memorabilia fell from the back from his car and appeared to have been caught. from the side of the road.

She exclusively told to Metro.co.uk: ‘All! It was also a fluke. We were driving, I heard a noise and I thought, “What was that? Then I heard it again and the safe was open.

“I don’t know how it opened, but I know I closed it!” So it kind of opened up, my suitcase fell out of the car. We only drove for five minutes and turned around three times and it was nowhere.

Fortunately, a few weeks later, Rhea was able to laugh at the incident and joked that her missing ring was “so sweaty”.

“I thought it would be somewhere on the side of the road, but someone must have picked it up. And someone appreciates some really sweaty Rhea Ripley clothes. Hope they washed it off, she yelled. “I was so sweaty! It was disgusting.’

Rhea had a show to do that night for WWE, and ended up turning to Raw superstar Damian Priest to borrow his pants and finish his match.

“Losing all my stuff – legitimate, I have a pair of pants. A pair of gear pants, that’s all I had, ”she admitted. “So losing that and losing the title, and having to wear Damian Priest’s pants – and they fit me better than they fit him!”

‘It was hilarious! I remember putting them on and I walked out, and they fit me. He said, “I hate you!” Everyone who walked past was like, “Woooow! Didn’t we know you had another pair of pants? »« These are not my pants! [laughs]’

The Archer of Infamy was happy to help his friend “without hesitation,” and he revealed there was a long-standing joke about their similar styles even before the incident.

“No hesitation,” he smiles. “We’ve always joked that our gear looked the same anyway, so it’s a ‘Will it fit?’ Question. She had to make a few changes but she made it work. If she hadn’t said anything, no one would have even known!

Rhea admitted that her own response to the ordeal was important, as she was able to not have a “mental breakdown” or be too overwhelmed during what was a pretty horrific situation.

‘[My reaction] was definitely a big deal for me. I’m very proud that I wasn’t completely stressed out and had a nervous breakdown because all my gear was in there, ”she said.

“All of my memories, my WrestleMania gear, everything I loved was in this bag. My favorite jacket I made was in this bag. So I was really upset about it, but luckily I was traveling with Tamina and she is so calm and cool and serene.

“She’s like a mother to all of us, and seeing her not stressing out and being so cold about it kind of helped me relax and not stress too much about it, and run with it.”

Rhea laughed: “Life is bigger than pants!
