It’s always interesting to see interactions between NXT and main roster stars, mainly because there’s a real possibility that they’ll cross paths somewhere down the line.
Case in point: Rhea Ripley and Reina Gonzalez, as a team, are a phenomenal force to be reckoned with. They’re capable of doing some dangerous things together, and as such, Rhea decided it’d be a good idea to jump straight to the top of the mountain by challenging Women’s Tag Team Champions Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross.
As you can imagine, Bliss was more than happy to offer a retort to the potential challenge on social media.
From a purely physical point of view Alexa vs Rhea would be a real David vs Goliath showdown, which is one of the many reasons why this potential match-up intrigues us so much.
Given WWE’s tendency to put small heels with big bodyguards it wouldn’t be surprising to see, somehow, these two actually align with one another somewhere down the road – but it still feels like there’s a lot left for them to accomplish with their respective partners.
The questions will continue to flood in regarding when Alexa and Nikki will actually break up, but it feels like that’s just a bit too premature of a thought.
Ripley, on the other hand, seems to be transitioning over into NXT from NXT UK which could swing the door wide open for her to do some fascinating things – including going after the NXT Women’s Championship if she so desires.
