#WWE #WWENXT #WWERaw #SmackDown #MondayMotivation

The first picture in the post shows Raquel Gonzalez followed by a video message from ‘The Monster Among Men’ and ‘The Nightmare‘. Both the main roster Superstars spoke highly of the current NXT Women’s champion.

They also said that she will take the championship to new levels. The picture is a before and after comparison which really shows how the NXT Women’s champion has changed over time.

In the video, Braun Strowman declares that Raquel is an animal, and he feels bad for the girls that have to step into the ring with her. He even went as far as to say that she has to hold back while wrestling and is a one of a kind specimen. Braun lauded her commitment to the company as well as in bettering herself in the process.

The WWE Raw Women’s Champion, Rhea Ripley, also had something to say about Raquel. Rhea stated that she has always seen great things in Raquel for a long time.

Rhea knows the struggles that Raquel has been through and how people have been doubting Raquel her whole career. She applauded Raquel and gave a throwback to the time Raquel defeated her in a Last Woman Standing match at NXT New Year’s Evil. The match was as brutal as it could be, with Raquel being the eventual winner at the end.
