On Wednesday, WWE superstar and Women’s Champion Rhea “Mami” Ripley officially confirmed on Instagram that she’s engaged to her boyfriend, AEW star Buddy Matthews. Ripley’s post has since gone viral, with so a lot of her fans, friends, and fellow coworkers congratulating her.
Rhea Ripley has been involved in an on-screen relationship with Judgment Day member Dominik Mysterio. However, she has been in a real-life relationship for a couple of years now. They met each other in WWE in 2020 and quickly fell in love. Both Matthews and Ripley made their relationship official last year in May. The couple have been happily together for almost 3 years and are now engaged to be married!
Rhea Ripley announces engagement with Buddy Mathews
Yesterday, Rhea Ripley took to Instagram to announce that she just got engaged with AEW star, Buddy Matthews. In the post, she uploaded a selfie of them together at the beach, with Ripley kissing the Matthews’ cheek. It was evident that she was extremely happy, as she said “Yes” a thousand times over.
Her post has gone viral among the wrestling community, where her fans as well as her friends and other WWE wrestlers congratulated her in the comment section.
Despite being in different promotions, the couple often share quite a few posts together, showing their relationship. Ever since they made their relationship public, Ripley and Matthews have become one of the most loved couples in the world of professional wrestling.
On the other hand, Ripley has been involved in an on-screen relationship with fellow Judgement Day member, Dominik Mysterio. The two have been able to make a name for themselves as a couple so far. However, it will be interesting to see how their storyline progresses in the coming few weeks.
Top WWE stars react to the announcement including Alexa Bliss
After Rhea Ripley announced that she got engaged to Buddy Matthews, a number of WWE superstars and friends took to the comment section of her post to congratulate the couple. Cathy Kelly was overwhelmed by the news, while Maxxine Dupri commented that she was very happy to hear the news.
Other stars like Bronson Reed, Trinity Fatu, Miro, Alexa Bliss, Renee Paquette, Bayley, Sonya Deville, Samantha Erwin, and all of her fans congratulated her. Some fans even joked that Dominik was going to get really jealous seeing his “Mami” get married to the AEW star.
Ripley had previously confirmed that she thinks of Dominik as a really good friend and that her heart belongs to Buddy Matthews. While there’s really no doubt that the relationship between Dominik and Rhea Ripley is simply work-related and they all are simply friends in real life, it’s still funny for some fans to point out that Matthews may have been getting worried that Dom was getting too close to Ripley and proposed as soon as possible.
At the end of the day, Ripley and Matthews seem really happy with each other. We hope that the couple eventually get married soon and have a great life together.
