WWE Raw Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley has been in the ring with some of the very best women in WWE & NXT during her time with the company, but her list of opponents isn’t complete just yet.
Ripley recently spoke to The South African, where she was asked if there were any matches she would like to have. Ripley named NXT star Candice LeRae as someone who she never got to get in the ring with, saying:
“Yeah, I mean, I have a lot of matches that I want to do. Like I never got to wrestle Candice, which is someone that I wanted to wrestle real badly. So I’m hoping that one day I get to wrestle Candice, I can’t wait for more of my NXT girls to come up so I can have more fights with them. Because it’s always lovely stepping in the ring with them. And we bring out that certain side of each other, we just know each other so well. So it really is a fight to win.
Ripley continued on, naming Alexa Bliss as someone currently on the Raw brand that she would like to face. Rhea said:
“That out of the people that have here at the moment like I actually, even though she’s creepy, and you never really know what you’re gonna get from her, I wouldn’t mind stepping in the ring with Alexa Bliss. I know. I might regret what I’m saying right now. But she’s just so different. And I like different. And I like a challenge. And she definitely is a challenge. So Alexa Bliss will be someone that I’m curious of, and I just I wouldn’t mind stepping in the right with.”
Ripley will defend her Raw Women’s Championship against Charlotte Flair at tonight’s (July 18) WWE Money In The Bank event.
