It was previously reported by Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com that Rhea Ripley’s work visa expired and she had to return to Australia as part of the process to get her visa renewed.
Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com provided an update on the story via his website’s message board:
“I’m double checking on this but one person high up just denied that to me. Again, I’m not saying Mike is wrong, in this company the left and right hand rarely know what the other is doing. But the person I checked with would know the creative reason given which was Charlotte to NXT for ratings help.”
“Another person high up said inaccurate and she’s in Orlando right now. Clearly if she isn’t although supposedly that was just checked, people who need to know don’t know.”
