There are many world class female pro wrestlers who have been able to earn the respect of the masses over the years, and one superstar who certainly falls into that category is none other than Natalya.
She is incredibly highly thought of by a large portion of fans both young and old, and she also seems to be someone who a lot of competitors backstage turn to for advice.
So then, if she comes out and praises you in a public manner, you know that it’s a pretty big deal and that you must be doing something right.
Rhea Ripley’s rise towards the top of NXT has not only seen her appear on the main roster several times, but it has also ensured that she will be competing at WrestleMania this year as she prepares to defend her NXT Women’s Championship against Charlotte Flair.
Regardless of whether she wins or loses the match it truly does feel like this is the beginning of something big for her – and, as Natalya mentions, her stance as a fighting champion on screen is always going to get fans on board.
Whether or not Ripley winds up transitioning over to RAW or SmackDown after WrestleMania remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure: she is one of the fastest rising female stars in recent memory.
