Rhea was part of the first roster of NXT UK after reaching the semi-finals of the 2018 competition, earning its inaugural women's champion in August 2018.

Her supporters will have to wait and see when Rhea returns, but the timing is not ideal. She was not only in line for the RAW Women's Title battle but also a member of The Judgement Day as the stable's narrative progressed.

A video package promoting Rhea's entry to the brand premiered on February 22, 2021, broadcast of Raw. She makes her main roster debut on Raw on March 22, challenging Asuka to a Raw Women's Championship contest at WrestleMania 37.

Rhea and Liv Morgan fought Sasha Banks and Naomi in a contender's match for the championships on April 4, the Raw after WrestleMania, which ended in a losing effort and prompted a dejected Ripley to walk out on Morgan.

Two weeks later, on the 18 April edition of Raw, Rhea and Liv were eventually given a tag-team battle for the WWE Women's Tag Team Championships against Banks and Naomi, but they were also defeated.
