Rhea Ripley returns to WWE Raw, attacks Rey Mysterio

Ripley has not wrestled since the June 6 Raw episode.

Rhea Ripley returned to WWE on Monday's Raw, attacking Rey Mysterio in a segment involving Finn Balor, Damian Priest, plus Dominik, Angie, and Aalyah Mysterio. 

Ripley had been sidelined from ring action since the June 6 Raw episode after suffering a possible concussion and a dental injury. 

Ripley and her Judgment Day stablemates Finn Balor and Damian Priest interrupted a celebration for Rey Mysterio's 20th anniversary in WWE in a backstage segment, and Ripley shoved away Rey's daughter Aalyah, then stomped on Rey after he had been jumped by Balor and Priest. 

Earlier in the show, Priest and Balor lost a tag team match to Rey and Dominik. After the backstage attack, a no disqualification match with Rey and Dominik vs. Balor and Priest was added to Saturday's SummerSlam lineup. 

Prior to her injuries, Ripley had been scheduled to challenge Bianca Belair for the Raw Women's Championship at June's Money in the Bank event, but ended up replaced in the match by Carmella.
