In the world of professional wrestling, love knows no boundaries, and when it comes to celebrating their partners, wrestlers often take to social media to express their affection and admiration. Buddy Matthews, a former AEW trios champion and current AEW star, recently showcased his appreciation for his fiancée, none other than the WWE Women’s World Champion, Rhea Ripley, following her impressive outfit choice at the Payback premium live event (PLE).
Buddy Matthews and Rhea Ripley have been a power couple in the wrestling world, sharing their love story openly with fans on various social media platforms. Their relationship has been a topic of interest among fans, especially in light of rumors regarding Ripley’s dating life outside the ring. However, the engaged couple has consistently affirmed their love and commitment to each other.
The engagement of Rhea Ripley and Buddy Matthews was officially announced earlier this year, putting an end to any speculations about her personal life. Despite the public nature of their relationship, Buddy Matthews has not been immune to playful jibes from wrestling rivals, with some mentioning Dominik Mysterio, Ripley’s onscreen partner, on live television.
In the latest chapter of their love story, Buddy Matthews took to “X” (formerly known as Twitter) to shower praise on Rhea Ripley for her choice of attire at WWE Payback. Ripley, who appeared at the event alongside The Judgment Day faction, made a memorable fashion statement with her outfit.

Rhea Ripley’s presence at Payback was not limited to her fashion choices. She played a significant role in the event’s matches, including interference in the tag title match alongside Dominik Mysterio and JD McDonagh. Their intervention ultimately helped Damian Priest and Finn Balor secure a tag title victory in a Steel City Street Fight against Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. Later in the night, Ripley successfully defended her Women’s World Championship against the formidable Raquel Rodriguez, solidifying her status as a dominant force in WWE’s Women’s division.
