NXT UK is one of the shows that is taped months before it is actually released. They have no live shows, but some of the wrestlers are still quite popular amongst fans. Rhea Ripley is the current NXT UK Women’s Champion and is quite popular.
She recently had an interview taken by SPORTBible.com where she talked about the NXT tapings: "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." When asked about who she would like to face in the WWE she said: "That's a tough one because they're all awesome athletes, so I definitely want to have a go at all of them.
But the main one would probably be Becky Lynch just because she did have a little bit of a Twitter war with me and I don't appreciate that. So, you know, you got to give it to her."
