WWE Star Rhea Ripley Discusses Being Left Out Of The WWE Draft, Wanting To Start A Family


WWE Star Rhea Ripley has accomplished so much in her young career already including being NXT UK Women’s Champion and the NXT Women’s Champion. However, she’s still only 24 years old. Clearly the best is still to come for the talented Ripley, which is pretty amazing to think about.

She recently sat down with Lillian Garcia for her Chasing Glory podcast where she discussed the recent WWE Draft, starting a family and more. You can check out some of the highlights here.

On the WWE Draft:

“I was waiting for it and then it didn’t happen. I would like to go to Raw or SmackDown, but at the same time, there are so many people in NXT that I haven’t faced yet and I feel like there is so much more that I can still do. I would love to wrestle Candice [LeRae], especially now that her whole persona has changed. I would love to wrestle Indi Hartwell, Shotzi [Blackheart], I want to wrestle Raquel [Gonzalez] again. I would love to do a stipulation match with her.”

On starting a family:

“Oh man, that’s a really tough question. I guess glory just means, like, knowing that I did my best and I got as far as I could. I say it all of the time – I don’t have many goals in this business ’cause I just want to see how far I can get. I feel like once my career is all done and dusted, and I’ve done everything I could have possibly done, then that’s my glory. Then I can live, and have a normal life, and go have kids. I love wrestling, but when that day comes, I’m going back home and I’m starting a family.”

Like most fans Ripley was waiting for her name to be called during the WWE Draft. It didn’t happen, but she’s making the best of things. As for her career there’s still lots of time and there’s no doubt ”The Nightmare” is going to rack up more gold and accomplishments on the way.
