Rhea Ripley recently sat down with Gary Cassidy of Sportskeeda Wrestling to talk about her upcoming WrestleMania showdown with Charlotte Flair. In particular, Gary asked Rhea if she would mind if Bianca Belair was added to the match in Tampa.
If they add Bianca Belair to it, I honestly don’t mind. I love fighting Bianca, and if she got put into the match, I’d be all for it. I’m not going to argue about it and say that she doesn’t deserve it, because she does deserve it. She deserves her WrestleMania moment and, if she gets added to it, I’m not going to complain.
The fact that the NXT Women’s Championship is on the line on the Grandest Stage of them All is impressive all on its own. When asked about how she feels about Vince McMahon and other top WWE officials trusting her, she has the reaction you’d expect.
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.
