Rhea Ripley wants to face Becky Lynch.
Lynch and Ripley are two of the top stars in WWE's women's division, but they have rarely clashed in the ring. In 2019, they faced off on the November 20 episode of NXT, but the match ended in chaos when Shayna Baszler, Marina Shafir, and Jessamyn Duke interfered. Lynch recently returned to WWE after she missed a few months with a separated shoulder. The two former Raw Women's Champions briefly faced off during the Women's WarGames Match at WWE Survivor Series, and Ripley is hungry for more.
Speaking on the November 30 episode of WWE's The Bump, Ripley was asked about a potential match against Lynch. She made it clear that she's looking forward to the opportunity to face Lynch in a singles match, and "The Eradicator" expressed her confidence that she would emerge victorious.
"I’m really looking forward to it. Becky is someone that I had a match with in NXT, and it didn’t finish with a conclusion. It finished with Shayna and the girls coming out and ruining that match for me. She’s always been someone that I feel I could like a televised match with and it’d be competitive. So every time I get to step in the ring, I’m looking forward to it, and I want that one on one interaction. I want that match. I’m hoping that one day, it will happen, and ‘Mami’ is gonna put ‘The Man’ down," Ripley said.
