Ruby Riott had an impressive victory over Peyton Royce this past Monday on RAW. A win that she has been needing and wanting ever since she returned from her shoulder injury in February. Her injuries had her out of action since April of 2019.
Since returning, she has had her fallout with former Riott Squad member Liv Morgan and recently feuding with The IIconics. All of which she would wind up on the losing end up until last week when she teamed with Bianca Belair. Although she did win last week, Belair was the one to get the pin and it was in a tag team match.
There has been rumblings that her and Morgan will reunite once again as a tag team and her win against Royce this week was definitely retribution. She had the following to say on Twitter:
“Monday night was a special night. My match against Peyton Royce might not have been for a title, or even an opportunity at one. But, it was my first singles win since November of 2019. When I came back from my shoulder surgeries, I thought things would be exactly how I left them, but they weren’t. Things changed….people changed and I didn’t know how to handle it, but the fire that was lit after Peyton disrespected Liv Morgan, was one that I’ve felt for months. Even if it was only for a few minutes. Liv, if you watched on Monday, I hope you were proud. Peyton, from now on, keep her name outta your mouth.”
With keeping Morgan in this storyline it does seem as though the route to get her and Riott together may still be happening. We will have to see where this takes Riott now that she is finally in the win column against The IIconics.
What direction would you like to see Riott head towards? Would you like to see her and Morgan in the tag team division again, or would you like to see her run for championship gold solo?
