The Judgement Day’s Rhea Ripley is not afraid to step up to male WWE Superstars.
Since joining the faction Ripley unearthed a more aggressive and violent version of herself. Beligerant in many ways she often involved herself in the rest of the group’s altercations regardless of gender.
She has fought the likes of Dolph Ziggler, Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson and Edge. In the lead-up to the Royal Rumble, she even hinted at following in the footsteps of WWE Hall of Famer Beth Pheonix and enter the men’s Rumble match.
However, since the Royal Rumble match, Ripley has been focused on other matters such as WrestleMania. But appearing on WWE Die Woche, Ripley was asked which male superstar she wants to get on her hands again.
“It’s all fun,” she said. “The main person that I really enjoyed beating up was probably AJ Styles.
I don’t know why, I think it’s something about him, but just watching his reaction to me stepping up to him and being so baffled that this woman is standing up to him and beating him up, it really made for a fun time for me and I loved screwing up his brain a little bit. I’d like AJ to come back so I could potentially beat him up again.”
Rhea Ripley Face Charlotte Flair For The SmackDown Women’s Championship At WrestleMania 39
Ripley booked her ticket to Hollywood by winning the Royal Rumble. The following night the Nightmare announced she will challenge Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
Ripley and Flair have a storied history due to their rivalry heading into WrestleMania 36. The two fought over the NXT Women’s Championship, which shockingly ended up in the hands of the Queen.
The two clashed on the main roster over the Raw Women’s Championship in 2021, which also saw Flair take the title from Ripley. Since then, Flair has continued to rack up the title reigns while Ripley re-established herself as one of the company’s standout performers.
