Becky Lynch on Rhea Ripley: "She is the future of wrestling"

Night 1 of WrestleMania Goes Hollywood set the WWE Universe on fire with several very interesting challenges, but one in particular attracted everyone's attention thanks to the extraordinary work done by the two athletes involved, and obviously we are talking about Rhea Ripley vs Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women's Championship.

During the match, Rhea Ripley finally managed to have her redemption against The Queen by ripping the belt out of her hands with an absurd Riptide from the post, resulting in a pinfall, with a victory that also made her Grand Slam Champion.

Speaking with Daniel Cormier and Marc Raimondi for ESPN MMA after the second night of WrestleMania 39, Becky Lynch was keen to comment on this important win for the Aussie, saying: "She's the champion. She's one of the greatest female wrestlers I've ever seen in my whole life.

She does it naturally, she's a star. She's mesmerizing to watch. She's the future of the wrestling world, I think. But I can't wait to beat her for that title one day."

Becky Lynch later stated that her day will come, but Ripley still has plenty of time.

The Man made it clear that she's excited to see what The Eradicator will do for SmackDown's women's division, later sharing her belief that the division needs a fresh lick of paint and that she can't think of anyone better than Rhea to drive it: "My time will come here one of these days, but Rhea still has plenty of time.

I'm super excited about what she's going to do for the women's division at Smackdown. I think she needs a fresh coat of paint, and I couldn't think of one. better fresh coat of paint than Rhea Ripley”.
