Rhea Ripley On WWE NXT vs. AEW Wednesday Night Wars: "The Internet Blew That Up A Lot More Than It Was"

WWE Raw Women's Champion Rhea Ripley recently spoke with Alex McCarthy of talk SPORT for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During her discussion with the popular digital sports media outlet, the WWE Superstar spoke about her thoughts on the Wednesday Night Wars between the WWE NXT brand and All Elite Wrestling (AEW), which is now over with NXT moving to Tuesday nights this past week.

Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where Ripley explains how she feels "the internet blew that up a lot more than it was."

“I think the internet definitely blew it up a lot more than we thought. We didn’t really think about it, at least I didn’t really think about it too much when we were on NXT. I just went there, did my job. I totally forgot there was a ‘war’ going on. I just wanted to do the best that I could do and I think everyone was in the same boat as that. I think everyone in NXT just loves what they do so much and we just wanted to do the best that we could. And if that meant we were in a ‘war’ with someone, I guess we’re going to fight. But I think the internet blew that up a lot more than it was.”
