Earlier in the night, Becky Lynch won the women's Elimination Chamber to secure her shot against Ripley for the WWE Women's World Title at WrestleMania 40.

Speaking to Alex McCarthy of Daily Mail after WWE Elimination Chamber, Ripley was asked about potentially main eventing WrestleMania 40.

"Mami already main evented her WrestleMania. Why not do the next one as well? I think Becky Lynch and I stepping into the ring is Mania main event worthy. I really do. The last time we faced each other was NXT leading up to Survivor Series and WarGames. That was Mama's time to shine and it's still Mami's time to shine. Mami is always on top and I've proved that time and time again. If we are given the opportunity. If we take the opportunity to be main event, I hope Becky Lynch is ready. She can cut me off and run her mouth and say that I'm a lazy champion; I just proved I'm not a lazy champion. I went out there and beat Nia Jax, the person that beat you. I also beat Lyra Valkyria, the person that beat you for the NXT Women's Championship. That's two for two. Why not make it three for three and beat you at WrestleMania," she stated.

Four title matches have been confirmed for WrestleMania 40, including Cody Rhodes challenging Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
