Oct. 28 was more than the day of WWE Evolution for Rhea Ripley.
The current NXT UK Women's Champion spoke with Gary Stonehouse of The Sun and explained that Oct. 28 is more than just the night WWE made history with WWE Evolution.
"(Oct. 28 is) the exact same date I stepped into a wrestling ring for the first time. It’s such a special date for me," she said. "To see how far I’ve come in that time and getting ready to wrestle at the first-ever all women’s pay-per-view it’s just amazing. I want to get the date tattooed on me and I’ve been thinking about getting it on my wrist. That way I’ve got my gauntlets to protect it in the ring. It’s crazy. There are so many days in the year and for it to fall on the same one... when does that ever happen?”
Ripley did not complete during the television portion of WWE Evolution, but did square off against Dakota Kai in a dark match prior to the show. The bout did not make the main broadcast as Ripley's NXT UK Women's title victory has yet to air on the WWE Network.
