SmackDown Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley has been a dominant force in WWE over the past few weeks. She has not only been on a winning streak over the past few months but has also decimated opponents such as Zelina Vega and Natalya. Aside from her in-ring destruction, Ripley has also been a prominent presence on Social Media, where she makes her voice heard. Recently she took a massive dig at infamous influencer Andrew Tate.
On Twitter, the Internet Hall of Fame account shared a post about how the scientist at Harvard University have drawn images showcasing what Gollum from Lord of the Rings would look like if he was human. Underneath the initial post, one user stated that the drawing looked like an AI version of Andrew Tate. Ripley seems to have taken a liking to the post and retweet it.
Tate has recently found himself amid controversy once again as he sat down for an interview with the BBC. He was asked about allegations against him and whether his views harm the general public. Tate vehemently defended his actions and stood his ground.
The Judgment Day member has also previously taken digs at the influencer and does not seem to budge when it comes to making her feelings known.
The SmackDown Women’s Champion won her title at WrestleMania 39 when she defeated Charlotte Flair. Since then, she has defended her title at Backlash and Night of Champions against Zelina Vega and Natalya, respectively. She disposed of the challengers with ease.
Rhea Ripley has previously taken shots at Andrew Tate
Ripley has always made it known that she is not a huge fan of Andrew Tate, refusing to shy away from taking shots at the infamous influencer, who is known for making misogynist comments and promoting stereotypes. Tate also leads a lavish lifestyle and apparently teaches men how to live his kind of life.
Earlier this year, Tate was arrested by Romanian police for illegal activities. It was then reported that in his jail cell, Tate has complained of lice, bedbugs, and cockroaches. Rhea Ripley then took to Instagram to share a screenshot of the report and stated that he must fit in perfectly then, in what was a massive dig at Tate.

Andrew Tate also seems to have a heated rivalry with YouTube stars Logan and Jake Paul. Meanwhile, Rhea Ripley recently defended her title against Natalya at a WWE live event in Manchester. She defeated the veteran star easily and later celebrated with her stablemate Damian Priest. The Nightmare is not yet scheduled for a match at Money in the Bank, but that may soon change during the upcoming episodes of RAW.
