One of Australia’s biggest ever WWE stars just got even more proof she’s one of the top women in the world’s biggest pro wrestling company.
Foxsports.com.au can exclusively reveal that Adelaide-born Rhea Ripley has received an overall rating of 86 in the upcoming WWE 2K22 video game.
The game, available on March 11 on PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, Series X and S, and PC, is the first release in the long-running series since 2019.

Ripley also featured in that previous game (WWE 2K20), but was at the time a member of the NXT UK roster, receiving a rating of 78.
Since then the 25-year-old has debuted on the WWE main roster, winning the Raw Women’s Championship at last year’s WrestleMania 37, also holding the Women’s Tag Team Championship for two months.
Ripley’s rating of 86 puts her in line with fellow young star Bianca Belair, just behind WWE legend Chyna (87), and ahead of Alexa Bliss (84), ex-tag team partner Nikki Ash (82), Kay Lee Ray (81) and Carmella (79), with other women’s ratings yet to be revealed.
The legendary Rey Mysterio has already been announced as the cover star for the game which promises updates to the game engine and visuals to improve on the long-running series’ formula.
