Rhea Ripley Vs Zoey Stark H2H Stats, Records, Win And Defeats Before WWE Survivor Series 2023

5 months ago By Sports Desk

After the pay-per-view event Crown Jewel 2023, we are heading towards another event of this year, i.e., WWE Survivor Series 2023. The pay-per-view event will take place on November 25th 2023. Weeks prior to the event, WWE had already confirmed the match for the Women’s World Champion. Rhea Ripley will defend her title against Zoey Stark on Survivor Series 2023. In this article, we bring you all details about both the superstars when they were head to head in the ring.

Ripley and Stark have faced off only twice before in WWE history, both times with Ripley’s title on the line. Their first meeting occurred at Crown Jewel 2023 on November 4th in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. This was a Fatal 5-Way match also involving Shayna Baszler, Nia Jax, and Raquel Rodriguez. Ripley was able to overcome the odds and defeat all four challengers to retain her championship. Towards the closing moments, Baszler and Stark teamed up to eliminate Rodriguez, before Stark turned on Baszler to guarantee a one-on-one matchup. Despite Stark’s best efforts, Ripley managed to dig deep and score the victory by pinfall after hitting her Riptide finisher.

The next time Ripley and Stark battled was at January’s Royal Rumble event. With Ripley’s title once again at stake, this was another multi-woman matchup featuring the likes of Asuka and Liv Morgan as well. In what turned out to be a dramatic sequence of events, Asuka attempted to blind Ripley with her green mist but inadvertently spat in the eyes of Morgan instead. Capitalizing quickly, Ripley tossed Asuka out of the ring and set her sights on a blinded Morgan. Ripley almost found herself defeated when Morgan initiated a surprise offensive flurry, but with brute strength managed to flip the script and dump Morgan out of the ring for the win. It was another successful title defense for Ripley despite the chaotic nature of the bout.

So in their two previous meetings, Rhea Ripley has proven victorious over Zoey Stark to retain her championship. The head to head record currently stands at 2-0 in favor of Ripley. Stark gave a great effort in both matches but ultimately could not overcome Ripley’s power and technical prowess.

Ripley deserves credit for her mental fortitude as much as her physicality. In the Fatal 5-Way at Crown Jewel, she managed to overcome four top challengers gunning for her title. Then at the Royal Rumble, she battled through interference and a surprise comeback to narrowly escape by the skin of her teeth. Ripley has shown the ability to adapt and survive when the odds seem stacked against her.

Meanwhile, Zoey Stark has gradually positioned herself as the number one contender. Her impressive performances have not yet translated to championship gold, but she continues to develop with each passing event. The Survivor Series stage on November 25th represents her biggest opportunity yet to finally achieve victory over Ripley.

Stark is undoubtedly the underdog heading into the contest. At just 5’ 4” she faces a towering opponent in the 6-foot Ripley. But her speed and agility could pose problems for the champion this time around. Stark will likely need to rely on striking combos and high-flying aerial attacks if she wants to destabilize Ripley. Wearing the bigger wrestler down with targeted assaults will improve Stark’s chances as the match progresses into the later rounds.

Rhea Ripley possesses the strength advantage to simply overpower her smaller challenger if given the opportunity. Her game plan will center around grounding Stark’s offense and relying on powerful slams to slowly chip away. If Ripley can restrain Stark’s maneuverability, her odds of retaining the gold once again look strong.

This matchup represents a true clash of styles between striker and grappler. Stark boasts an MMA background while Ripley comes from an Australian rugby environment. Expect punishing blows to be exchanged between the two determined competitors. Neither woman will back down easily with so much on the line.

The current undefeated streak in title matches suggests Rhea Ripley heads into the bout as the favorite at Survivor Series. Her previous victories over Stark will provide additional confidence when stepping into the ring again for their third encounter. Ripley also possesses home-field advantage for the showdown, taking place in front of a Chicago crowd likely to cheer her on against the visiting Stark.

But Zoey Stark has momentum heading into this long-anticipated championship opportunity. She is hungry for gold after falling just short in their previous two meetings. An ambitious underdog with skills to challenge the reigning titleholder. Stark may only need to avoid Ripley’s early onslaught and strike at the right moment to realize her dream.

Their developing rivalry has produced dramatic moments and hard-hitting action thus far. The WWE Universe awaits the next chapter when Ripley defends her title against Stark once more at Survivor Series 2023. An intense fight filled with bitter history between two fierce women. A potential classic showdown to determine who leaves with the gold.
