Rhea Ripley Wants A Rivalry Against Bianca Belair Like The Rock vs. Stone Cold

Could Rhea and Bianca be the next Austin and Rock?

Earlier this week, Bianca Belair noted that she’d love to face Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania. But, Rhea has taken it one step further by saying her and Bianca want to be the next Rock and Austin. They were set to face of at this years Money In The Bank before Rhea got injured. Speaking to Joseph Staszewski of the New York Post, Ripley discussed her injury and feud with Belair.

As upsetting as it was, I think it was a blessing in disguise. Bianca and I, it’s something that shouldn’t be rushed and we don’t want to rush it. Where that sort of felt like it’s gonna happen and that would be the end of it. We want our names to be etched in history. We want to leave our legacy where we can be in the ring together and make magic, Bianca and I are perfect rivals pretty much. We’ve talked about it in NXT before. We’ve talked about it here at Raw before. We pretty much want to be the next Stone Cold and The Rock. We want to have the storylines. We want to go out there and we want to steal the show.

Rhea was out of action for four months before returning in October. She spoke on the injury.

A lot of it was the injury. I hadn’t been cleared for the longest time. I think I got cleared properly and fully the week before my NXT match (on Oct. 18). Apart from that, I pretty much wasn’t cleared that whole time (four months). After that there pretty much hasn’t been an opportunity for me to wrestle because I have been there with The Judgment Day and sort of their muscle. I help them out if they need me. I’m “the problem” as the OC would say. I feel like my wrestling career is just starting up again.
