NXT UK Superstar Rhea Ripley has become quite a sensation within the WWE Universe. Going by the history of the NXT roster, this woman is likely to conquer the female division of the main roster. For now, she has been appearing on WWE’s black-and-gold brand NXT, regularly. This is because she is involved in the buildup up Survivor Series.
While speaking of Rhea Ripley, we should mention that she possesses a unique attitude and persona. WWE has given her the on-screen badass character and she justified it keeping up good works. While speaking in an interview, the Australian female superstar addressed her gimmick and how she had come up with it.
Speaking with Lilian Garcia on her podcast, Chasing Glory, Rhea Ripley talked about her “tough” attitude and how she received the unique look. She was not entirely sure of the origin of the look.
But she mentioned her love towards heavy metal and rock which must have inspired to sport such rough and tough character, (courtesy sescoops.com)
“I don’t know really, I think if I really I have to put something, it’d be like probably the music I listen to cause I love like the heavy metal and the rock and all that stuff and it really does get me fired up,” she said. “That’s why I like to say that I have to have a really good theme song before I go out because I need that to like get into that mentality of ‘I’m gonna kill someone! Let’s go!’”
Rhea Ripley continued saying that she felt hot while going out to perform from the gorilla position and decided to keep her head wet with water. Since then, she is doing the same which appeared to be the best thing that she can do to compete in a match.
She also noted on not understanding dress-code of WWE and feeling comfortable in her own in-ring attire,
“Guys, I don’t do business casual.’ Like, if I can wear a leather jacket with studs and chains on it, that’s my business casual. I don’t even want to wear heels!”
Rhea Ripley is all set to make history during the Survivor Series weekend where the women superstars will compete in the first-ever WarGames match at NXT. Ripley will lead the team of herself, Candice LeRae, Tegan Nox and Mia Yim against Shayna Baszler, Io Shirai, Bionca Belair and one unannounced member of the team.
