WWE superstar Rhea Ripley isn’t taking any prisoners.

Staying true to the opening line of her theme music – ‘This is my brutality’ – the former Raw Women’s Champion delivered a savage response when a fan decided to comment on her recent image overhaul.

Rhea – who has been open about dealing with negativity on social media – shared some pictures of herself flexing her muscles after it was revealed she isn’t medically cleared to compete at the moment just weeks after she unveiled her new black hair and joined the evil Judgement Day group.

The Twitter user a replied: ‘You need to leave judgment day You were better when you’re on Monday night raw and your hair was a lot better how it was before long hair… And blonde you were better looking that way I know it’s probably best for business.’

Rhea wasn’t impressed, and replied with an egg emoji alongside a pretty scathing response.

She tweeted: ‘Bald ass mf telling me how to style my hair… Salty coz he lost the chance to style his own’.

See you soon. ⚖️

The 25-year-old star has transformed her look since first appearing in WWE in 2017, as she embraced a more goth style and gear, including ditching her long blonde locks and totally changing her outfits.

She previously revealed the decision actually saved her job, as she told Mark Andrews on My Love Letter to Wrestling, Rhea said: ‘It was the whole year between the Mae Young Classic one and two [in 2017 and 2018]. I went through a lot, mentally, behind the scenes.

‘I was having troubles at home, at work, I hated myself. Very mentally weak at that point. I didn’t feel like I was good enough. I was constantly being told I wasn’t good enough and I had to do something to improve it.

‘I was on the chopping block a couple of times and I nearly got booted. I just had a lot going on and I was very down.’

So, she ‘completely’ changed her ‘mental game’, and admitted despite not always liking being around people, she signed up to the gym before turning up to work with her new look.

‘We have this thing called car wash where you take all the photos and videos, leading up to the Mae Young Classic, so we get all the footage we need. I sort of walked up in this new gear,’ she recalled.

‘I got my haircut, but I [showed up] in this new hear and one of the coaches was like, “What’s this?” “The new Rhea Ripley, and I’m a heel.” “Okay,” and I knew that “okay” was like, “This is your ass if it doesn’t work.” ‘
