Rhea Ripley Believes Match With Becky Lynch Is Worthy Of WrestleMania 40 Main Event

Rhea Ripley wants to close the show with Becky Lynch at WrestleMania

Following the events of the 2024 Elimination Chamber PLE in Perth, Australia, as Becky Lynch emerged victorious inside the Elimination Chamber and Rhea Ripley overcame the challenge of Nia Jax, the WWE Women’s World Championship match at WrestleMania 40 is now official. 

Rhea Ripley spoke to Alex McCarthy of the Daily Mail about this WrestleMania bout, and she revealed that she sees it worthy of headlining the show. 

“Mami already main evented her WrestleMania. Why not do the next one as well? I think Becky Lynch and I stepping into the ring is Mania main event worthy. I really do. The last time we faced each other was NXT leading up to Survivor Series and WarGames. That was Mama's time to shine and it's still Mami's time to shine. Mami is always on top and I've proved that time and time again. If we are given the opportunity. If we take the opportunity to be main event, I hope Becky Lynch is ready. She can cut me off and run her mouth and say that I'm a lazy champion; I just proved I'm not a lazy champion. I went out there and beat Nia Jax, the person that beat you. I also beat Lyra Valkyria, the person that beat you for the NXT Women's Championship. That's two for two. Why not make it three for three and beat you at WrestleMania.”

With Roman Reigns vs. Cody Rhodes scheduled for the main event on Night 2 of WrestleMania 40, the door is still open for a main event match on Night 1.
