Rhea Ripley Reveals What WWE “Made Her Get”

Rhea Ripley winner fo the 2023 WWE Royal Rumble

It is safe to say that Rhea Ripley is riding high. Ever since joining the Judgement Day in May 2022, her career has skyrocketed and she has become one of WWE”s most popular acts.

This year alone she has won the Women’s Royal Rumble before capturing the SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 39 while her partnership with Dominik Mysterio is one of the highlights across all WWE programming.

Her popularity reaches beyond the ring and onto social media. Her accounts have amassed millions of followers. Her TikTok account boasts 2.1 million followers and 11.8 million likes, which is an impressive feat, especially because she didn’t even want it in the first place.

Ripley was a recent guest on Under The Ring, where she spoke about her popularity on social media and how WWE made her set up a TikTok account to capitalise on her internet fame.

Social media is a very interesting place. There is a lot of positivity, but there’s a lot of negativity. Obviously, my TikTok has been going absolutely wild, which is funny because I didn’t even want TikTok.

Work made me get it because apparently, I was TikTok famous. They made me get it, and I guess they were right because it skyrocketed, and now I’m the most followed superstar in WWE, which is wild. I don’t really go on social media too much anymore because there is so much negativity. I don’t read as much as I used to read.

Obviously, I try and see all the fan art and all the pictures of people doing my makeup, because I like to see that stuff. I like to see the lives that I’ve inspired and the people that I’ve brought the confidence out, in a good way. Most of the time, I’ll post something really cheeky and then get off the app.
