Rhea Ripley is down to compete with 29 other women at the upcoming WWE pay-per-view this month.
She'd be just as down to compete against 29 men.
Ahead of the WWE Royal Rumble 2023 pay-per-view this weekend, Rhea Ripley spoke with SportsKeeda for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During the discussion, The Judgment Day member spoke about her interest in competing in the 30-man Royal Rumble match, making it a 29-man and 1-woman bout instead.
“I mean, yeah, I would love to enter the Men’s Royal Rumble," Ripley stated. "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."
Ripley continued, "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.”
