In today’s Wrestling Observer Radio, it was noted that while the two have been feuding on television, Rhea Ripley and Raquel Rodriguez will probably not have a match at WWE Summerslam. Rodriguez has a storyline injury, which is the reason given for the two not facing each other yet.

Dave Meltzer noted the backstage reason is that with eight matches already on the card, there is a time constraint. The company doesn’t want any matches to get shortchanged on time. That’s why matches initially planned for the show (which could also include Becky Lynch vs. Trish Stratus) are no longer happening in Detroit.

It’s unknown when a match between the two could happen, but it was noted that it’s still a possibility it could happen at Summerslam as a surprise.
