WWE RAW Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley is set to defend against Charlotte Flair later tonight and in a recent interview with ‘The South African‘, Rhea Ripley claimed that her current title run has been fairly good for a debut run. Check out some highlights from her recent interview below.
On her RAW Women’s Championship reign:
I feel like it’s been a pretty good run so far. I didn’t expect it to be so perfect, like from the get go where I just like, arrived in challenge Asuka and won the RAW Women’s championship. But I think that’s pretty cool. And that’s going to be an epic story for me later on, in life to tell. But yeah, my time at RAW has been so insane. It’s just been such a learning curve as well. Like, it’s so different. And I never really realized how different it was until I got there. It’s a lot more busy. And just, I want to say stressful as well. Like, I feel like I’ve got so much pressure on my shoulders, especially because I came in and I was the new girl I know I am rolling and champion. And I really got to live up to that and prove to everyone why I deserve the spotlight. So it’s been a wild ride.
On fans returning to the audience for events:
I’m sort of just taking it day by day, but I am very excited to have a crowd back in attendance. It’s something that we’ve been working towards for a long time now. And having that little taste of a live crowd at WrestleMania was so amazing, we’ve missed them so much. And to go into money in the bank and have the live crowd and know that it’s not gonna stop after that. Like I’m very, very excited to see how it’s all gonna go.
On a potential feud with Alexa Bliss:
I have a lot of matches that I want to do. Like I never got to wrestle Candice, which is someone that I wanted to wrestle real badly. So I’m hoping that one day I get to wrestle Candice, I can’t wait for more of my NXT girls to come up so I can have more fights with them. Because it’s always lovely stepping in the ring with them. And we bring out that certain side of each other, we just know each other so well. So it really is a fight to win. That out of the people that have here at the moment like I actually, even though she’s creepy, and you never really know what you’re gonna get from her, I wouldn’t mind stepping in the ring with Alexa Bliss. I know. I might regret what I’m saying right now. But she’s just so different. And I like different. And I like a challenge. And she definitely is a challenge. So Alexa Bliss will be someone that I’m curious of, and I just I wouldn’t mind stepping in the ring with.
On her entrance music:
I actually got a fair bit of say, in my music, which was really cool. I chose my last few songs in the Mae Young Classics. I chose both of them. And then I couldn’t keep using Final Straw. So the music guys a, they put it all together and they’re like, what do you want in a song I was like, I want something like final straw because it was just such a good song. I really loved it. And it really revved me up I really need a song that revs me up and gets me in my groove and gets me ready to step out on stage. And I asked him to have like sort of the similar beats in it. And they ended up sending me the first copy, which had Ash Costello sing it, and I didn’t even ask for her to sing it.
