Rhea Ripley Acknowledges Her Spotlight Has Diminished A Bit, Says She's Happy To Share The Glory

Rhea Ripley doesn't think she will ever outgrow NXT.

At the start of the year, Rhea Ripley was on top of the world appearing on Raw to challenge Charlotte Flair to a match at WrestleMania and riding high off of an NXT Women's Championship victory over Shayna Baszler.

Speaking with Newsweek, Rhea Ripley said that she knows that the spotlight can't stay on her forever but one day, the spotlight will be hers again.

"I feel like [the spotlight on me] diminished a little bit, but we all have to share the spotlight," Ripley said. "I had my time to shine and it will come again, but right now Io is the NXT Women's Champion and I'm working my way back up to be in that spotlight again. Whether that comes or not, we'll see. I've got to try other things and face other people as well. I had my time and everyone is going to have their time and I'm just happy to be here and wrestling and kicking butt."

In spite of previously appearing on Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown, Rhea Ripley feels that she will never outgrow NXT.

"I don't think I can ever outgrow NXT. There is always something coming up and I honestly want to be in NXT for a long long time," Ripley said. "Whether that's the case or not, I don't know, I don't have that call. I feel like I have so much more to do here. Whether that's singles matches or whatever, I love NXT and I love being a part of it. And I hope I'm here for longer. I guess we'll see."

Most recently on NXT, Rhea Ripley was the target of an attack by Mercedes Martinez. During that attack, she suffered a busted nose. You can see the aftermath of that in the video above.
