For a while now, Rhea Ripley has been the dominant women’s world champion on Monday Night Raw. To select her next opponent, Adam Pearce placed four contenders in a match for her upcoming title defense. Her recent Fatal 5-way match at the Crown Jewel event remains fresh in the memory of her dedicated fans.
WWE Crown Jewel 2023 took place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and Rhea Ripley faced a 20% chance of retaining her title in this high-stakes Fatal 5-way match. This was a significant test of her championship reign as she squared off against four elite female superstars and she celebrated her success with just one word in a tweet.

Mami finally discovered who she was meant to be, and she has since become an unstoppable force in women’s wrestling. She left her mark on history with her ferocity and no-nonsense approach, and she now stands as a major player in The Judgment Day.
The women’s division was shaken up by Nia Jax’s return to WWE. She went on a killing spree, assaulting Rhea Ripley, Raquel Rodriguez, Shayna Baszler, and Zoey Stark. They played a round of fatal-5 match, and Mami put up an amazing fight. She was unfazed by the difficulty of the task at hand.
The Eradicator won her match in Riyadh and successfully defended her championship. From the second rope, she hit Raquel Rodriguez and Shayna Baszler with a Riptide. Shayna was pinned and forced to absorb the full force of the attack.
Rhea was hesitant to defend her championship in a five-way match, but she was overjoyed with her performance. Rhea appeared on Twitter the day after her victory over four WWE women to discuss the match. Taking pride in her triumph, she simply wrote, “Dominant,” alongside a photo of herself with her trophy.
How many times has Rhea Ripley defended her title?
How Rhea Ripley develops and contributes to the WWE’s women’s roster will determine her fate with the company. It’s encouraging to see a performer trusted to be a part of major storylines in a field where women don’t always receive the same opportunities as men.
Ripley will continue to gain fans in the women’s division as long as she competes at a high level and delivers entertaining matches. She has successfully defended the title five times since she first won it at WrestleMania 39 in April. Her most recent successful defense was at a recent Crown Jewel event.
