Raquel Rodriguez is undoubtedly one of the most formidable forces in Monday Night Raw’s women’s division. Rodriguez is currently in an acrimonious feud with her former best friend, Rhea Ripley. Both superstars battled each other for the Women’s World Championship at Payback 2023.

However, Rodriguez failed to capture the championship after an interference from Dominic Mysterio. This week on RAW, the 32-year-old squared off against Rhea Ripley in a rematch for the Women’s World Championship. Nia Jax ambushed her when Raquel was on the brink of scoring a victory.

Following the attack from the Irresistible Force, Raquel Rodriguez addressed her situation on her X handle. She wrote, “Well…I see this match just isn’t gonna have a fair ending one way or the other.” Going by her post, the 32-year-old seems visibly upset with the constant interference in her matches. There is a high possibility of a potential triple-threat title match between the trio in WWE’s upcoming premium live event, Fastlane.
