The Judgment Day’s Rhea Ripley has named her dream opponent for WrestleMania, picking someone she is very familiar with.
As the lone female member of the four-person Raw stable known as The Judgment Day, Rhea Ripley has had a huge spotlight on her because of how she has helped out her allies Finn Balor, Damian Priest and Dominik Mysterio win matches.
At Crown Jewel, The Judgment Day beat The OC in a six-man tag team match with Ripley as the difference maker once again. In the match, Ripley attacked AJ Styles by sending him into the ring apron when the referee wasn’t looking. Balor capitalized on the situation and pinned Styles shortly after that.
Speaking to USA Network Insider, Rhea Ripley cast her gaze into the future and named who she hopes to face at WrestleMania 39 in Los Angeles:
“I think it would have to be myself and Bianca Belair for the Raw Women’s Championship. Whenever we step in the ring together, it’s magic. So if we could do it on a bigger scale and have the title on the line, I think it would be absolutely fantastic.”
Ripley and Belair have come through the ranks of WWE together with both women previously stars of the NXT brand. They were the last two competitors left in the ring at the 2021 women’s Royal Rumble that The EST of WWE eventually won. Despite coming up short at the Rumble, Ripley still competed for the Raw Women’s Title at WrestleMania which she won the night after Bianca Belair captured the SmackDown Women’s Title in the main event of WrestleMania Saturday.
