The on-screen relationship between WWE superstars Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio may be facing uncertain times due to a recent development in Ripley’s real-life romance. While the two have portrayed a fragile on-screen connection, Ripley’s off-screen status is now causing ripples in their scripted relationship as she inches closer to a real-life commitment with someone other than Dominik.
Buddy Matthews, a former WWE colleague of Rhea Ripley, left the Stamford-based promotion in 2021. Despite the professional distance, Matthews and Ripley found love within the wrestling world. In May 2022, they officially became a couple, and now, over a year later, it seems they are on the path to marriage.
A wedding photographer shared pictures of Matthews proposing to Ripley on their Instagram account, accompanied by a heartwarming caption. The post revealed that Matthews orchestrated a stunning luxury beach picnic for the proposal and presented Ripley with a custom ring featuring a striking black metal band.
One line in the caption encapsulates the sentiment: “I know these two are known for kicking a** 24/7, but damn – they are really freaking sweet together.” The images indeed reflect the depth of love between the couple.
