Rhea Ripley Would Love To Enter The WWE Men's Royal Rumble

Rhea Ripley would like to follow in the Royal Rumble footsteps of names such as Chyna, Beth Phoenix and Kharma.

In a recent interview with WrestleBinge by Sportskeeda, WWE Superstar Rhea Ripley spoke about the notion of entering the Men's Royal Rumble Match, stating:

"Yeah, I would love to enter the men's Royal Rumble. I would love to. It would be a lot of fun and a history-making thing. Especially [following in the footsteps of] someone like Beth Phoenix, someone I really looked up to as a kid; I loved her a lot, I related to her body-wise, she made me feel confident in myself. To try and fill the shoes of someone like Beth Phoenix and help this women's evolution, I would love to step into the men's Royal Rumble. It'd be a lot of fun."

Ripley is currently the oddsmakers' favourite to win this year's Women's Royal Rumble - although the fairly recent inclusion of a dedicated Women's Rumble shouldn't rule out the possibility of a female Superstar entering the Men's Rumble match, as proven by Nia Jax in 2019. 

In doing so, Nia became the fourth woman to enter a Men's Rumble - following Chyna in 1999, Beth Phoenix in 2010, and Kharma (also known as Awesome Kong) in 2012. 

H/T to Fightful.
