Rhea Ripley Open To Winning The WWE Intercontinental Title
After winning the Royal Rumble, Rhea Ripley speaks about the WWE Intercontinental Championship.
Speaking to Ariel Helwani for BT Sport following the WWE Royal Rumble, Rhea Ripley discussed the idea of her one day winning the WWE Intercontinental Championship, stating:
"I know Kofi [Kingston] said that he wants to see me go for the IC title, and I’m so down for it. I love being compared to Chyna. I know I get a lot of hate [...] but I understand where it’s coming from, like ‘You can’t be the next Chyna!’ Yeah, I know I can’t be the next Chyna. She was absolutely amazing, she was herself, and she was unique to her, but I’m the first Rhea Ripley. If I can get somewhat compared to her, I’m doing something right, but I’m also going to be doing it in my own special way. Yeah, I love to see it.”
On Saturday, January 28, Ripley won the Women's Royal Rumble match after entering at number one. She recently announced her intention to face SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 39.
