Ripley to challenge for Raw Women's title at WWE WrestleMania 37

The Raw women's division's newest member is getting a title shot at WrestleMania 37.

WWE has announced that Rhea Ripley will challenge for Asuka's Raw Women's Championship at WrestleMania 37. The announcement was made after Ripley debuted as a member of the Raw roster by confronting Asuka tonight and challenging her to a title match at WrestleMania.

Asuka defeated Peyton Royce in a non-title match on Raw tonight but was then confronted by Ripley. Ripley mentioned that Charlotte Flair had declared that she wants to challenge Asuka at WrestleMania, but Ripley said Charlotte isn't here due to recovering from COVID-19. Ripley then challenged Asuka for WrestleMania. Asuka accepted the challenge and told Ripley that she's not ready for Asuka.

Charlotte announced tonight that testing positive for COVID-19 is the reason she hasn't been on WWE television recently. Andrade, who is engaged to Charlotte, tweeted in response to her: "4 more days, and you clear #mami I hope and go back to the wrestlemania poster."

Ripley, who had her final match for NXT in January, was an entrant in this year's women's Royal Rumble match. She made it to the final two before losing to Bianca Belair.

Ripley was also in action at WrestleMania 36 last year, losing the NXT Women's Championship to Charlotte.

WrestleMania 37 is a two-night event that's taking place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on Saturday, April 10 and Sunday, April 11.

Roman Reigns vs. Edge for the Universal Championship, Sasha Banks vs. Belair for the SmackDown Women's Championship, Bobby Lashley vs. Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship, The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods) vs. AJ Styles & Omos for the Raw Tag Team titles, and Bad Bunny vs. The Miz have also been announced for WrestleMania 37. Dave Meltzer has reported that Daniel Bryan will be added to Reigns vs. Edge to make it a triple threat match for the Universal title.
