by SIMONE BRUGNOLI | VIEW 767
Rhea Ripley put in an extraordinary performance during the 2023 Women's Royal Rumble, entering the square with the number 1 and lasting 1 hour, 1 minute and 3 seconds before eliminating Liv Morgan for the victory, which propels her directly into the main event of one of the two nights of Wrestlemania 39.
But now obviously she is called to make a choice, that is she must decide whether to challenge the current Raw champion Bianca Belair, aiming to win back that belt that she has already brought to life, or her former rival Charlotte Flair who had beaten her for the NXT title after winning the 2020 Rumble, and who is currently the SmackDown Champion.
In their post Royal Rumble press conference, The Eradicator said: "I will have a lot to think about before WrestleMania. I am very conflicted about this decision. I have been in the ring with Bianca many times and I love every second I spend with her.
I think we pull off a side of each other that not many people will see, and we really take it to the absolute limit. But again, it's the same with Charlotte. She holds the Smackdown Women's Title. So if I had to pick her, not only can I beat her for the first time in a singles match, which is something I really, really want to do, but I can also become a Grand Slam Champion if I do it.
So I have to think about it a lot”.

Of course, she also mentioned the rivalry she had with The Queen in 2020 when the main roster wrestler went to challenge her for the NXT title by beating her at WrestleMania 36 in front of zero audience.
“I have Bianca, someone who I came to NXT with and I have a lot to prove because she defeated me many times and I beat her and we really want to prove who WWE EST really is. But then I have someone like Charlotte, who I have already participated in WrestleMania and lost the title with it.
But I want my redemption at the same time. So I'm not sure where I go next, but I have a lot to think about." Rhea Ripley has opened up about her on-screen chemistry with Dominik Mysterio on WWE RAW. “My chemistry with Dom Dom; it sort of just clicks.
We didn't really talk to each other too much before I showed him the light, and I showed him his potential without his father. It's funny how our relationship sort of started, I was targeting him for a while because I thought he was weak, but then he showed all of us exactly how strong he truly is by taking out Edge, taking out Rey, and just choosing his own path and getting out of his father's shadow, which is all that we really wanted to see from him."
