After weeks of vignettes promising that Rhea Ripley was "coming soon," Ripley finally showed up on the March 22 episode of WWE Raw.
Ripley immediately confronted Raw Women's Champion Asuka and got herself a shot at the Raw Women's Title at WrestleMania 37.
What was she doing in the weeks leading up to her debut? Hanging out in catering, of course.
"So, it’s actually kind of funny. My last few weeks have actually just been in catering. I’ve just been going to the Raw shows and I’ve just been chilling in catering, not really knowing what was really going on with me or what they had planned. I just was eating too much (laughs) and that’s pretty much how it went for like weeks and then last week I found out, I want to say around 4 p.m., what was going on. Man, it was a shock to me as much as it is to everyone else. I was super surprised, super excited," she told Joseph Staszewski of the New York Post.
As of now, the bout remains a singles contest between Ripley and Asuka.
