Rhea Ripley’s last year in WWE did not turn out the way that many thought it would for her. The former NXT Women’s Champion was pushed down the card, and she even admitted how that caused her to lose so much confidence. She also realizes that her pro wrestling career won’t last forever.
While speaking to Lilian Garcia on Chasing Glory, Ripley was asked what “glory means to her.” She answered the question to the best of her ability before expressing a desire to go “back home” and start a family when the time comes.
“Oh man, that’s a really tough question. I guess glory just means, like, knowing that I did my best and I got as far as I could. I say it all of the time – I don’t have many goals in this business ’cause I just want to see how far I can get. I feel like once my career is all done and dusted, and I’ve done everything I could have possibly done, then that’s my glory. Then I can live, and have a normal life, and go have kids. I love wrestling, but when that day comes, I’m going back home and I’m starting a family.”
Rhea Ripley is from Adelaide, Australia. Going back home for her would likely mean leaving the United States. It will likely be a long time before the 24-year-old Superstar has to deal with that decision, but you also never know what kind of unexpected events life can throw at you along the way.
