Rhea Ripley on transiting from NXT UK to WWE NXT

Jun 21, 2020 - by Steve Gerweck

“Going from winning the NXT UK Women’s champion was insane and I was so proud of myself. I was so humbled everyone trusted me with this massive responsibility. Then going into Royal Rumble, Survivor Series, War Games, becoming the NXT Women’s Champion and beating someone that was claimed to be unbeatable in Shayna Baszler – that was absolutely insane. If I told myself that when I first started in WWE, I wouldn’t have believed it. If I told myself when I was a kid, I wouldn’t have believed it. I’ve had a lot of people pass on advice to me and it’s super crazy to think about that. Having people like Triple H and Shawn Michaels at the performance centre, it’s just insane. All the people around me are just so great. They’ve all been through it and they all know so much and to have them all give me their knowledge is so insane. Going into work and seeing Shawn Michaels – someone I watched growing up – how many people can say that? That they get to see people like Shawn Michaels at work and that they get to learn off Shawn Michaels. To me that’s insane.”
