A rising YouTube sensation named Denise Salcedo invited the WWE star to a brief and fun interview session. The young and bubbly YouTuber proceeded to get to know Mami via the game, “Never Have I Ever.” One of the questions asked during the interview by Salcedo was, “Never have I ever used a dating app. The camera caught Rhea Ripley saying yes to the question, but not a complete yes. She said,“I used it, so I’m going to put it down, but at the same time, I didn’t use it. I had it so I could look who was around, but I never talked to anyone. Ever. I never swiped right, never swiped, well I had to swipe left to say no, but I never swiped right, never talked to anyone, but I definitely did use it… You got to, you know, look at my surroundings.”

For someone who is on the road for her work round the year, the prospect of finding love via dating apps sounds like a difficult proposition. Interestingly, while Mami was just scouting her surroundings on a dating app, she found her true love in her vicinity as well. 

In fact, Ripley is happily engaged to her soulmate now.
