Rhea Ripley Knows People Might Be Mad With AEW Comments

Speaking to Logan Paul on the Impaulsive podcast, Rhea Ripley openly discussed Buddy Matthews’ role in AEW and explained that despite her being on a bigger platform, Matthews is only ever supportive of her career:

Like you’re different and connecting with the crowd on a certain way, you’re obviously skyrocketing to the top. When for him, he’s been in WWE. He’s been wrestling for over 10 years. I think maybe over 15 years. He’s been wrestling for a long, long time and he knows that like when he was in WWE, he hit a peak there. And then over in AEW as well, he’s doing well and it’s slowly growing.

Like The House of Black is slowly growing and getting more steam, but he also knows that at the end of the day that the platform that I’m on, this might make a lot of people mad, but it’s obviously higher. And yeah I feel he doesn’t get threatened by that and he says he doesn’t either, so like I take his word. I trust him, I believe him. And like he’s very comfortable in what he’s doing and who I am. And he also loves to help me along the way and help me grow, which is what a relationship should be.
