Originally published at Rhea Ripley corrects social media claims about her physique
Rhea Ripley has responded to inaccurate representations of her height and weight.
On Saturday, Sony Sports Network, WWE’s broadcast partner in India, posted a “tale of the tape” graphic for Ripley’s WrestleMania match with Charlotte Flair.
The graphic states that Ripley is 5 feet, 7 inches tall, and weighs 137 pounds.
Taking to Twitter, the 26-year-old corrected the stats as underestimations, declaring that she is, in fact, 5 feet, 9 inches in height, and weighs 170 pounds.
Seen a lot of these being made, so I’m going to correct you all.
I’m 5ft 9in, 170lbs https://t.co/RPIoIprT0K

“Billed” height and weight statistics are nothing new in professional wrestling, and are traditionally inflated on the men’s side.
