Rhea Ripley Taking Acting Classes To Help With Confidence

Rhea Ripley is the Raw Women's Champion, but even champions have doubts.

Ripley has been open about her confidence struggles in wrestling, saying she lost confidence in herself following WrestleMania 36 and her loss to Charlotte Flair.

Speaking to Ryan Satin on Out of Character, Ripley revealed that she is taking acting classes to help her with her confidence outside the ring.

"My confidence isn't huge in my everyday life. I'm a really shy person and I'm not good at keeping a conversation and being a larger-than-life person. When I'm in the ring, that's where I get all my confidence and where I get to be Rhea Ripley, but still myself, which is weird to say out loud because it doesn't make sense but then it does when you're there doing it. I want to be myself, as in Rhea Ripley, but I want to have that confidence that everyone else seems to have all the time. I'm working on it," she said.

Ripley is set to defend her Raw Women's Title against Asuka at WrestleMania Backlash.
