WWE's current Women's World Heavyweight Champion Rhea Ripley was the subject of a gross Instagram prank on Sunday which was referenced by commentator Corey Graves on Monday.
The Australian wrestler shared an Instagram story on Sunday, apparently by accident, that a fan had tagged her. The image, which we can't describe in too much detail, featured a picture of Ripley as well as some crass additions that the fan had made to the picture.
Wrestling were shocked at the image but also expressed their sympathy with Ripley's "unfortunate" error. Journalist David Bixenspan wrote on Twitter: "I guess the good news is that Rhea Ripley had somehow managed to avoid hearing about that creepy trend among pervy wrestling fans?"
Ripley didn't delete the story but it was vaguely alluded to on WWE television during Monday's episode of Raw.
\u201cand now because corey fucking graves thought it was funny to bring up someone literally sexually harrassing rhea, making a \u201cjoke\u201d out of it, there are now other people, mostly men, LAUGHING at his \u201cjoke.\u201d \n\nnot surprised all the ones laughing in the comments are men.\u201d
\u201cCorey Graves once again proves he ain't shit. The man constantly tells us who he is, but nobody wants to believe him. Raw commentary continues to be the worst commentary team on television.\u201d
