Update on the situation with Rhea Ripley’s injury and if she’ll be back for WWE Summerslam

As seen during the April 15th 2024 edition of WWE RAW, Rhea Ripley officially vacated her WWE women’s world title due to a sprained AC joint. In an update on Rhea’s recovery, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted that she is rehabbing her shoulder rather than having surgery. Meltzer stated the following about Rhea’s recovery…

“Right now she’s not scheduled back for SummerSlam but we were also told if she heals up faster than expected or if the storyline changes to where they need her for an appearance it’s still possible. If rehab can’t mend the shoulder enough, she could need surgery.”

Women’s champion Liv Morgan is currently involved in a storyline with Rhea’s on-screen boyfriend Dominik Mysterio. Liv vowed to take away everything Rhea has including Dominik.
