Rhea Ripley was on NXT to send a message, and do a little scouting

The June 27 episode of NXT had Baron Corbin in the main event, and Mustafa Ali continuing his program to set up what should be a great match for next Tuesday’s show. But the biggest main roster name who showed up was WWE Women’s World champion Rhea Ripley of The Judgement Day.

The former NXT UK and NXT Women’s champ was on hand to warn Carmelo Hayes to stay out of her group’s business (the NXT titleholder showed up on Raw the night before to help Seth Rollins even the odds against Judgement Day, and set-up his own feud with Finn Bálor). But she also happened across the aftermath of Lyra Valkyria’s attack on Jacy Jayne, and told the Irish wrestler she liked her style.

Another possible Judgement Day recruit?
