The once and likely future women’s champion, Rhea Ripley wants to be in the men’s royal rumble. For much of 2022, she beat up male wrestlers left and right. Not just small guys like Rey Mysterio, she even slammed Luke Gallows at one point earlier this year. Some have said they’ve been building her up like Chyna.
This is what Rhea Ripley said in an interview with Sportskeeda. “I mean, yeah, I would love to enter the Men’s, Royal Rumble. I would love to. It would be a lot of fun. It would be a history-making thing, especially having someone like Beth Phoenix who is someone I really look up to as a kid. I loved her a lot. I related to her body-wise. She made me feel confident in myself. To try to fill the shoes of someone like Beth Phoenix or just like the main women…and try to help this women’s evolution, I do believe that I would love to step into the Men’s Royal Rumble. I think it’ll be a lot of fun.”

This does generate an interesting question. What if Rhea Ripley entered the rumble and won? Would she challenge for the WWE Championship? When Chyna was in the rumble, that was a real possibility as they were presenting that very idea. When Beth Phoenix was in the rumble, not quite so likely. Hard to say… but would be interesting to see.
What do you think? Do you want Rhea Ripley in the Royal Rumble? What if Rey Mysterio was number 1, and Rhea was number 2?
