Rhea Ripley is one of the new stars of NXT UK, ready to move to WWE in the next few years. Recently interviewed by SportBible, Rhea admitted that she was inspired by The Miz during her career. “I don’t think I’ve really taken anything from him.
Maybe just his ‘snarkiness,’ but I think that’s the main thing that I really liked about him. How he was just so cocky all the time and he pretty much just goes out there and says what he wants, so I guess I’ve been trying to do the same.
I do it more on Twitter than in person, because why not? I just like his attitude and thought he was cool," Ripley explained. She continued: “I hope so. I’d like to record live. With the whole NXT tapings and it not being aired yet but, like, still being seen and people finding out, I’m okay with it because it eventually does get aired.
"Yeah, it’s a shame that I haven’t been able to talk about it for three months, but at the end of the day, I’m still the first-ever NXT UK Women’s Champion, so … I don’t really mind when it gets aired.
It’s still awesome, it’s still amazing, it’s still a cool experience! But at the end of the day, the main goal for me is to be on live TV and if NXT UK could go live that would be awesome”.
