WWE Superstar Rey Ripley showed off her insane strength on this week’s Raw with a perfect bodyslam on Luke Gallows.

The former Raw Women’s Champion made her presence felt on Monday night as she and the rest of Doomsday were at ringside Karl Anderson’s opening match against Finn Balor.

Unsurprisingly, Rhea has been a thorn in the side of Carl and his OC teammates AJ Styles and Gallows, with the latter receiving the brunt of her interference.

In a fantastic moment, leaving everyone in the arena and watching at home stunned, she lifted the Gallows for a huge bodyslam.

It’s a great sign that Rhea can mix it up with the men on the roster, and that she’s presented as a real threat to the much bigger – in terms of physical stature – stars.

She also played a direct role in the finale, hitting Carl with a low blow to help Finn win before the two groups clashed at the Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.

Making it even more impressive, Rhea only recently returned to in-ring action after a four-month layoff due to injury, though she stayed a key part of Judgment Day despite not fighting herself.

Rhea hasn’t played since winning a number one contender’s match for the women’s title on June 6, but she accidentally took a knee to her face during the fight.

She later told fans on social media suffered a cranio-dental injury without going into specifics, but shared at one point selfie with heart monitor while training during her recovery.

When it comes to facing the men on the Raw roster, that won’t be a problem for Rae, who actually was placed in study groups with men while working with Scotty 2 Hottie at the Performance Center.

He Metro.co.uk exclusively reported: “I specifically asked her – her and Raquel, I had never had women in my classes before. I just thought I was watching them fight some other girls and the girls were so small it looked like they were afraid to hurt them.

“So I thought, let’s put them in there with some guys. At that time my class included Leo Roche, Fabian Marcel, Ricochet and these two ladies.

“Confidence started to come, working with these guys, going, not having to think. It continued with both of them and it was great to see.”

WWE Raw airs Mondays at 1am on BT Sport 1.
