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.

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