After that, she was asked about how she felt about Becky Lynch winning the Elimination Chamber. While Ripley believes that everyone has performed exceptionally well, she wanted Lynch to win, as facing her was on her bucket list.

She stated that the last time they two collided was during Ripley’s time at NXT, and the match was interrupted by Shayna Baszler. Ripley stated that the WrestleMania 40 match will give her the closure she needs while ticking off a task from her bucket list.
