Rhea Ripley has found the Goku to her Vegeta in Charlotte Flair.
Rhea Ripley has been tied to Charlotte Flair ever since started competing on the main roster as NXT Superstar one year ago.
Losing in her WrestleMania debut, Rhea Ripley still made history as the only NXT Champion to ever defend her championship at WWE's biggest event of the year. She would continue to cross paths with Charlotte Flair over on NXT and she would be the reason that Charlotte lost her NXT Championship as Ripley was pinned by Io Shirai in a triple threat at NXT TakeOver: In Your House 2020.
Later, Rhea Ripley would head to Monday Night Raw officially and defeat Asuka for the Raw Women's Championship at WrestleMania 37, Where she would be confronted by Charlotte Flair on Raw in the following weeks, eventually losing the championship to her at WWE Money in the Bank 2021.
Following the WWE Draft, Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley will officially be on separate brands beginning on October 22, as Charlotte was drafted to SmackDown while Rhea Ripley will stay on Monday Night Raw.
Even though Ripley is enjoying her time as a WWE Women's Tag Team Champion alongside Nikki ASH, Rhea Ripley tells the Battleground Podcast that Charlotte Flair is her number one nemesis and she will inevitably find her way back to feuding with the resident Queen of WWE.
“Yeah, there’s definitely unfinished business [with Flair]. Right now, I'm living my best life in a tag team with Nikki ASH, but I know that it will definitely go back to me and Charlotte at some stage. I feel like we're going to be feuding for the rest of our careers at this point because she's my number one nemesis and it never really ends with Charlotte. I still have to get my one-up on her. So yeah, I'm fighting for it.”
Furthermore, Ripley would mention in the interview, which was recorded before the draft, that she would like to one day become a Grand Slam Champion by winning the SmackDown Women's Championship and she also looks forward to eventually wrestling Becky Lynch again.
“I do like the color red. I do love being on Raw. But I really want to step in the ring with Becky again. I got to wrestle her once in NXT and it got cut short by Shayna Baszler, Jessamyn, and Marina, so I would love to step in the ring with her again and become a Grand Slam Champion. I love disrupting the peace, apparently. That day will come and my time will come. Whether it's this draft or the next draft, I have no idea, but I'm down for a flight whenever so if Becky wants to fight me then, I am ready.”
Ripley could still wind up on the same brand as Becky Lynch as Becky was not drafted during Night 1 of the 2021 WWE Draft. Fightful will have live coverage of Night 2 of the WWE draft on October 4 during Monday Night Raw.
