Veteran Claims WWE Need To Show “What A Beautiful Woman” Rhea Ripley Is

Rhea Ripley

Ever since joining The Judgment Day, Rhea Ripley has made herself a force to be reckoned with on Monday Night Raw.

Now, coming off her huge win at the Royal Rumble, Ripley is looking ahead to WrestleMania, where she’s chosen to face Charlotte Flair in an attempt to defeat The Queen in singles action for the first time in her career. The two previously faced off at WrestleMania 36, which was held inside the Performance Center in front of zero fans due to the COVID-19 pandemic. On that occasion, Flair defeated Ripley for the NXT Women’s Championship, and now Rhea is looking to avenge her previous WrestleMania loss.

Since that time, Ripley has made significant alterations to her appearance, dying her short hair black and wearing dark makeup to make herself stand out from the rest of the women on the roster. While her look is generally well-received by fans, Vince Russo believes she needs to “get rid of all that goth stuff” in order to make herself more aesthetically pleasing if she’s going to be a babyface champion.

Speaking on Writing with Russo, the veteran writer expressed his belief that the company is about to turn Ripley babyface and what that could mean for her future.

“So now, you’re getting into that Roman Reigns area again. I would do it, bro, if the plans were to slowly but surely turn Rhea Ripley babyface. Get rid of all that goth stuff; let’s really see what a beautiful woman she is if that were the plan. If she is the heel WWE Women’s Champion, I mean, what are we going to do, have Becky beat her? Like, how many times are we going to go back to that well? And if it’s not Becky, then who is it?”

“Rhea Ripley Is A Beast” – Vince Russo

Continuing, Russo said that while Ripley is more than able to best Charlotte Flair during their next meeting, he doesn’t believe much of the women’s roster is credible against the member of The Judgment Day due to her size and strength advantages.

“I believe Rhea Ripley can beat Charlotte Flair. Rhea Ripley is a beast. She is a big woman. I’d believe that if she beats Charlotte, I believe it. But my problem really is, bro, so now would you have Rhea Ripley as a heel champion, and then because she is bigger and just more impressive than the other girls? You know, we’ve got the Candice LeRaes, and we’ve got the Alexa Blisses, we’ve got these girls that are like, Rhea Ripley would kill them!”
