Emerging from the electrifying atmosphere of WrestleMania 40, the WWE's women's divisions on both "Raw" and "SmackDown" have been making significant waves under the spotlight of their respective titleholders. On "Raw," Rhea Ripley continues to dominate as the WWE Women's World Champion, while "SmackDown" witnessed a shift in power with Bayley capturing the WWE Women's Championship from IYO SKY.

The victories not only marked pivotal moments in their careers but also drew acclaim from one of wrestling's most revered figures, WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker. During a candid conversation on the "Six Feet Under Podcast," The Undertaker expressed his admiration for both champions.

He highlighted Bayley's perseverance, noting her recent WrestleMania victory as her first championship win in nearly four years. "I'm so proud of her because she kind of got stuck in a slot for a while," The Undertaker remarked.

He continued, "A lot of times, people might give up or settle into the mid-card range. But Bayley showed she had a lot of gas left in the tank, and it was great to see her getting her flowers."

Ripley's Remarkable Rise

The Undertaker also praised Rhea Ripley's remarkable evolution in the WWE.

Initially debuting as a polite, stereotypical blonde superstar, Ripley transformed into "The Eradicator," a persona that has captivated the WWE audience. "She's really coming into her own," said The Undertaker. "She’s had a phenomenal year and I believe she's only just begun to show how good she can be." However, Ripley's triumphant journey faced a recent setback.

Just nine days after defending her title at WrestleMania, she suffered an injury following a backstage attack orchestrated by Liv Morgan. This unfortunate incident forced Ripley to vacate her championship. The situation paved the way for "The Man" Becky Lynch, who triumphed over 13 other competitors on "Raw" to seize the vacated WWE Women's World Championship.

These developments underscore the dynamic and ever-evolving nature of WWE's women's divisions, showcasing not only the athleticism and resilience of its stars but also the deep narratives that continue to engage fans around the world.

As these athletes ascend to new heights, they earn not only titles and accolades but also the respect of legends like The Undertaker, further cementing their legacies in the annals of WWE history.
