The Australian powerhouse Rhea Ripley, who is the current SmackDown Women’s Champion and a member of The Judgment Day faction, has set her sights on the title held by Seth Rollins.
Rhea Ripley, who has made history as the first female Australian champion in WWE and the first woman to win all five women’s titles in the company, is confident that she can take down Rollins and become the first woman to hold a men’s title in WWE.
In a recent appearance on the Battleground Podcast, Ripley was asked if she would be interested in challenging for a male championship. She expressed her desire to face Rollins for the world heavyweight championship.
“You know, it would be awesome. It definitely would be awesome. I’m down for it. 110% would be down for it,” Ripley said. “Obviously, we don’t know what the future holds. And I don’t know how well intergender wrestling is gonna go within the WWE in general, with the networks and all of that, but if it would ever be a possibility, my name is at the top of the line.
It has to be.” I would love to give Seth Rollins a bit of a lesson after Monday; him putting his arm around me scaring the living hell out of me. H/T H/T Wrestle Zone
Whether or not Ripley will get her chance to challenge Rollins for the world heavyweight championship remains to be seen. However, one thing is for sure: she is a talented wrestler who is not afraid to challenge herself. If she does get her chance, it will be an interesting match to watch.
