WWE Superstars are considered idols by many fans across the world. They look up to them for their courage and determination displayed in the ring which seems to amaze the fans every time they see them inside the ring. But sometimes their fan spirit could cross borders that ain’t supposed to be crossed. We have seen instances in the past that many WWE Superstars, in particular, female athletes have faced uncomfortable situations with fans and even seen WWE Superstars become the subject of criminal activities.
Here are 5 instances of criminal situations faced by female WWE Superstars:
1. Sasha Banks
The Legit Boss Sasha Banks was subjected to an intense criminal situation most recently in California where she attended the Premiere of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Sasha left her car for no less than five minutes when a thief smashed the back windshield of her car and went off with a bag that had Sasha’s hair products and other valuables as mentioned by her on her Instagram story.
2. Alexa Bliss
Little Mrs. Carrera i.e Alexa Bliss became a victim of cyber-stalking back in 2021 when a fan began sending her disturbing messages, claiming to be married to her and also threatening to kill her then-boyfriend ((now husband) Ryan Carrera. Moreover, the obsession of the fan took him even further when he claimed that he was outside Alexa’s home. The situation became so fearful for Alexa Bliss that she had to resort to legal help for her safety and protection.

Sir, once again for the one millionth time. You do not know me. I do not know you. We have never spoken & we have never met. Stop making multiple accounts every time I block you, and stop harassing my fiancé. I really don’t know how many more times I can say this.

3. Sonya Deville
One of the most life-threatening and security breach situations was faced by WWE Superstars Sonya Deville and her best friend Mandy Rose staying at her house at the time of the crime in August 2020. A man claiming to have some sort of weapons broke into Sonya’s house while she and Mandy were asleep. As the security alarm went off, they found the man on Sonya’s back porch who started walking towards them causing them to flee the house. Luckily the authorities came just in time to arrest the criminal on charges of aggravated stalking, armed burglary of a dwelling, attempted armed kidnapping, and criminal mischief. Deville commented on the situation in April 2021 on the Pat McCafe show:
"It's been a crazy ride and you never know something like that is gonna happen until it happens. And you don't know how you're gonna feel about something like that happening until it happens. I'll just say, the day of, I was like, 'Oh, everything's fine. I'm gonna go sleep in my house tonight.' And then by the time nightfall came I was – like, couldn't even drive to the neighborhood. So, it's crazy." (H/T: Wrestling Inc.)
The former Anti-Diva and British native Paige, much like Alexa Bliss became a target of fan stalking herself when a fan stalked and showed up at her house back in November 2020. Luckily her boyfriend, Ronnie Radke was there to protect her and deal with the situation informing the police to deal with the situation further.
The powerful and dynamic Rhea Ripley has also been subjected to a criminal situation in October 2020 when she lost her luggage containing her in-ring gear and WWE Women’s tag team belt during a travel schedule. It became clear that she fell victim to robbery when the thief tried to sell Rhea’s property on social media about two months later.
"The person who evidently stole Ripley's bag when she was on tour in Albuquerque, NM, in October, which included her women's tag title belt (there are multiple copies and they use different belts for the house shows than at television) evidently tried to sell it on social media, both the bag and the title belt. When it was clear people figured out it was Ripley's stolen property, he stopped responding to messages
