“Her maturity, where she is now from where she was a year ago, she’s just a different level of competent performer. She brings so much to the table from her work ethic and attitude and ability. She is a sponge for learning. She’s humbled to it she wants to learn she wants to work with everybody,” said ‘The Game’. 

“If I was to say who’s that next person to step into those roles and really just ‘Game Change’ over the next year or two it’s Rhea,” said Levesque. “I just she just has ‘It’ written all over as does Bianca (Belair). There’s a certain talent you just see and it’s just a matter of how it unfolds, so sky’s the limit.”

Rhea Ripley and Bianca Belair, both NXT products, were the final two at the Royal Rumble 2021. Fans eagerly await Ripley’s main roster debut after her time in NXT reaches its end.
