Rhea Ripley was recently rumored to leave NXT to shift to the main roster. She recently had five of her earrings ripped off in a match against Io Shirai on NXT. Ahead of Survivor Series, there were rumors she will be joining the SmackDown Women’s team.
In a recent tweet, Ripley retweeted a throwback post of WWE. The video showed the match between her and then Raw Women’s Champion, Becky Lynch, during last year’s Survivor Series. Ripley reminisced about the old days too.
Last year, Lynch went to NXT to face the Black and Gold brand’s Women’s Champion, Shayna Baszler. ‘The Man’ spoke about how she came down from the NXT ramp and after facing various struggles, she became the champion. Lynch called Baszler out, but Ripley showed up instead.
The women fought each other until The Four Horsewomen came out and tried to beat Lynch up. However, Ripley and Lynch teamed up and fended them off.
Later on, at Survivor Series, Baszler defeated Bayley and Lynch. However, Baszler lost her title to Ripley the next month.
She revealed, “Growing up; Triple H is the reason I started watching WWE and the reason I started wrestling. Now he’s my boss and saying that I might be the one to main event WrestleMania in the next five years – to me, that’s amazing.”
While talking about main-eventing WrestleMania, she was asked if she looks up to fellow main-eventer Becky Lynch. Ripley had an interesting response to that
“Even though I should be setting goals, the best way to do it is to go with it. I want to make it to SmackDown, and I want to make it WrestleMania again. I want to do all the pay-per-views and wrestle everyone.”
After all the discussions, if Rhea Ripley actually moves to the main roster, the brands will definitely have an asset for themselves.
