The interview began with Garcia asking Ripley about her celebrity crush to which she answered Sylvester Stallone. Ripley likes the unique blend of toughness and charm in Stallone, which drifted the question toward her choice of flavor.

While addressing her favorite flavor, she said, “I love sour. Umm, I didn’t always love sour though. My friend back home Soraya, introduced me to the candy warheads. Once I had that, we went camping one time and the kiosks like sold them. We ate a hundred of them in one day.

As a result of her reckless actions, the WWE star paid the price. She opened up on the consequences she faced by saying, “Our tongues were peeling legit, I would poke my tongue out and peel like skin layers off, and then the next day we ate a hundred again and it was so much worse I couldn’t eat properly for a week.

Ripley even shared other adverse effects of her actions as she revealed that despite trying remedies she couldn’t reverse the damage to her tongue immediately.

As a result, she could not eat properly for a week. But Ripley tried to neutralize the effect of the candy by trying a cup of hot chocolate but failed. Perhaps forged from this experience, Ripley donned tongue piercings during her stint right now in WWE. 

Her obsession with her piercings and rings can be observed when a few weeks back, she immediately got new piercings after losing her nose rings. It happened during her fight against Raquel Rodriguez at WWE Payback.
