“So, Kevin – he goes by Demetri – he’s only been wrestling for, I want to say a year-and-a-half – two years, so that’s not very long. He’s still pretty green and still has a lot to learn, but he learns super fast. I’ve been trying to help him along the way. We’ll watch matches and I’ll sort of break it down for him and explain things. I’m always there for him ’cause I want him to succeed. He’s been straight on not wanting too much of my help ’cause he wants to succeed on his own; he doesn’t want me to give him anything, which I appreciate,” stated Rhea Ripley.
