Corey Graves Believes Rhea Ripley Could Form The Female Road Warriors

With WWE due to hold a Women’s Tag Team Championships tournament, Corey Graves wants Rhea Ripley to form a destructive Road Warriors-esque pairing.

Following the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships being declared vacant in lieu of Sasha Banks and Naomi’s walkout, a tournament is slated to be held for the championships. When, exactly, this tournament takes place remains to be seen.

WWE isn’t exactly gifted with women’s tag teams at the moment, leading many to state that the titles were rarely ever given the recognition they deserved. As it stands, you can count on one hand the amount of official WWE women’s tag teams.

Corey Graves believes that Rhea Ripley should find a new partner for the impending tournament. ‘The Saviour of Misbehaviour’ went one step further when discussing the topic on his After The Bell podcast, envisioning ‘The Nightmare’ in a female version of The Road Warriors (h/t Sportskeeda Wrestling):

“What about if we had a badass dominant female tag team in WWE? I know the first name that comes to mind is currently occupied with The Judgment Day. But let’s say like a Rhea Ripley and maybe Shayna Baszler or Shotzi or somebody with that edgy sort of look, and have true dominant female Road Warrior types in the women’s division.”

Rhea Ripley, now a member of The Judgement Day alongside Edge and Damian Priest, was formerly in duos with Liv Morgan and Nikki A.S.H, the latter of which saw her reign as WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion for two months between September and November 2021.

While the Edge-helmed trio are currently without a second female member, ‘The Rated R Superstar’ has teased a number of new members to the group, including Paige and Bayley. Both would be suitable partners for Rhea Ripley to once again take on the Women’s Tag Team Championships.

In singles competition, Rhea Ripley is a former Raw, NXT, and NXT UK Women’s Champion. The real-life Demi Bennett is viewed as one of the company’s top female Superstars, with CBS Sports calling her WWE’s Breakthrough Wrestler of the Year for 2019.
