Rhea Ripley spoke with Sportskeeda for a new interview and weighed in on her WrestleMania match with Charlotte Flair, plus Shayna Baszler biting Becky Lynch on Raw.
On getting a match with Charlotte at WrestleMania: “It’s insane to think that all the higher-ups think so highly of me, especially coming from Adelaide, Australia to now being a part of WWE and having people like Triple H – who was the reason I started wrestling – to have him and Vince McMahon, Paul Heyman actually enjoy what I’m doing and believe in me – it’s a wonderful feeling, and I don’t know how to put it into words. It just makes me feel very special and proud of how far I’ve come in this business – and how much work, time and effort, blood, sweat and tears I’ve put into this.”
On Shayna Baszler biting Becky Lynch on Raw: “[laughs] It’s interesting! Actually, I thought it was pretty cool. Shayna is a badass and for her to go out there and bite Becky Lynch – I love that sort of stuff! I was very excited to see it. I can’t lie about that at all, I thought it was cool!”
