During a recent episode of RAW, Ripley’s interference played a pivotal role in Drew McIntyre, a marquee name in the wrestling world, securing a victory over the crafty Sami Zayn in a singles match. This development added an extra layer of excitement as Drew McIntyre is now positioned to challenge Seth Rollins for the prestigious World Heavyweight Championship at Crown Jewel. This impending clash promises to be nothing short of a blockbuster showdown.
Furthermore, Rhea Ripley recently made headlines by expressing her unwavering confidence in Damian Priest, who clinched victory in the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder match, securing a golden ticket to a future title shot at a time of his choosing. In an exclusive interview with Sportskeeda Wrestling, Ripley did not mince words when it came to her belief in Priest’s abilities. She boldly proclaimed that Priest has what it takes to seize the top spot in WWE, even suggesting he could fill the shoes of the reigning Universal Champion, Roman Reigns.
“I think he’s ready to take Roman’s spot,” Ripley said. “Damian is ready for anything. I’ve known this man pretty much the entire time that I’ve been in NXT. I came to the main roster the exact same time as him. We did our initiation together. I know what he’s capable of and I think that the sky is the limit, and if he wants to get whatever gold he wants, I think he can do it.”
