Huge Rhea Ripley Match Teased For WWE WrestleMania 40

Huge Rhea Ripley Match Teased For WWE WrestleMania 40 WWE

Rhea Ripley has commented on a potential match against Becky Lynch, noting that she’d invite that challenge for WrestleMania 40.

The WWE Women’s World Champion has dominated the locker room for most of her main roster run.

While a match has been teased, Ripley has yet to finish a singles match against Becky Lynch.

Speaking with India Today,  Ripley recalled her one encounter with Lynch on NXT in 2019 ending after interference from Shayna Baszler.

Wanting the opportunity to prove that she’s better than The Man on the Grandest Stage of them All, Ripley said:

“I expect a huge challenge from the Man, Becky. She has definitely made her a name for herself in this company. She’s accomplished so much.

“She’s going down in history, as one of the best. And she will 110 percent be in the Hall of Fame one day. She really has made her own legacy.

“But like Becky, like Charlotte, like Sasha, like Bayley, like the Four horsewomen, they’ve all made a name for themselves. But at the end of the day, when you step in the ring with Mami, it’s a whole different sort of challenge.

“And if it were to be myself and Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 40, you know, I, I invite that challenge. Like you said, we went one on one in NXT.

“And it there was no no clear winner because it was A DQ because Shayna (Baszler), Jessamyn (Duke) and Marina (Shafir) just had to come down and ruin that for me when I was on the stride of my life.

“So, I would like to see what the outcome would be. I would love to step in the ring with her. I think it would be a great challenge.

“But at the same time, I feel like she doesn’t exactly know what Mami is capable of. And like what happened at WrestleMania 39, Charlotte underestimated me.

“She thought I was still the child that she wrestled at WrestleMania 36. I’m not. I’m a completely different animal. I’m a monster these days. I’m a nightmare. I’m an Eradicator.

“And it’s me and Becky. I’m just saying Mami is gonna end up on top, just like she always does.”

Lynch has just had a feud with WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus, with Lynch definitively beating Stratus in their steel cage match at Payback 2023.

At the same event, Ripley defended her Women’s World Title against Raquel Rodriguez.
