She is the only person in WWE’s history to win these two titles. Besides, Ripley is the first female Australian champion in WWE history.

Recently Rhea Ripley talked about her WWE journey with former WWE world champion and current Raw color commentator Samoa Joe.

Rhea Ripley talks at WWE Grit & Glory

WWE partnered with Chevrolet Silverado for a program named “WWE Grit & Glory” when WWE started talks about personal and professional life.

Rhea, “the ultra-aggressive and terrifyingly strong Aussie embraced her true self, and that has spelled bad news for anyone who faces her, as she already had the physical goods to stand toe-to-toe with any Superstar in sports-entertainment. A standout in the WWE Performance Center and the Mae Young Classic, Rhea Ripley entered NXT UK already a seasoned and cutthroat grappler with one goal on her mind, to rip the NXT UK Women’s division apart.” Credit: WWE

In the recent episode, the Aussie professional wrestler discussed her professional and personal life.

At the beginning of the interview, Samoa Joe asked, “How cool is it to achieve your dream of becoming a WWE Superstar at the age of 25?”

“It’s completely Epic,” Ripley replied. However, she is not 25 and corrected Joe and said jokingly, “and I am 24.”

Ripley started her professional wrestling career in 2013 at the age of 16. However, she joined WWE in 2017 at the Mae Young Classic tournament; she lost to Dakata Kai in the second round. In the same year, she debuted on the NXT television.

Later she returned to the 2018 Mae Young Classic tournament and survived four rounds. At the end of 2019, Ripley became the NXT Women’s Champion by defeating Shayna Baszler. Later she defended the title against Charlotte at WrestleMania 37, which was considered the best match of that evening. She did it all before the age of 24 and just joined Monday Night RAW on February 22, 2021.

She is just 24 and earned tremendous achievements that may take years for others. Ripley is pretty confident she has more to give to the Wrestling and her fans.
