In an interview with Wrestletalk, Rhea Ripley said that she expected Charlotte Flair to get added to her Wrestlemania match with Asuka for the RAW Women’s Championship. She was asked about the same thing last month, noting she wouldn’t have minded if it happened. Here are highlights:
On thinking Charlotte would get added to her match: Yeah, I was expecting something like that to happen, but it hasnt. I hope that everything in Charlottes life is doing great. I hope that shes menatlly good and physically good. I dont really know whats going on with all of that, but I am very excited to step in the ring with Asuka. If Charlotte got added to the match, like I wouldnt complain. I think it would still be an amazing match, and it would be a lot of fun and hopefully I could get some payback for last year.
On her match with Asuka: Since Im only stepping into the ring with Asuka, Im still super excited because shes someone that Ive wanted to wrestle for a long long time. I actually saw a match of hers in Japan when I was there at 17-years-old, we were on the same show, and I remember just like watching her and Im like shes amazing, this chick is crazy and badass and just amazing, you know, just fully amazing, and then its funny to come full circle and now I get to wrestle her at WrestleMania, so its definately a dream match of mine, and Ive very very glad that its coming true.”
