Rhea Ripley comments on the possibility of Buddy Matthews making a return to WWE

Buddy Matthews (formerly Buddy Murphy) is one-third of the current AEW world trios champions with Malakai Black and Brody King and is currently dating WWE Smackdown women’s champion Rhea Ripley. During an interview with Gery Roif, Rhea commented on the possibility of Matthews returning to WWE…

“Ohh, Maybe, maybe. I don’t know. So, I’m very convincing. I’m a very convincing girl, you know. I normally get what I want. So, it might happen, you never know. But right now I’m happy with my DomDom. I’m happy going out there with him and Finn and Damian and I mean, you never know what the future holds. It might happen.” (quote courtesy of Sportskeeda.com)

In the fall of 2022, there had been speculation about Matthews taking a hiatus from AEW but he did end up returning to the company.
