Rhea Ripley is certainly one of the top female Superstars in the company and made a name for herself in NXT before being called up to the main roster. She was the RAW Women’s Champion earlier in the year and is still one of the mainstays of the main roster.
Rhea Ripley and Nikki A.S.H. were rivals as both competed for the RAW WOmen’s Championship for several months this year. However, they put their differences aside and became a tag team. They even went on to become the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions.
While speaking with Sportskeeda Wrestling, Rhea Ripley talked about WWE’s Disrespectful decision to not include Nikki A.S.H. despite the fact that she was one half of the WWE women’s tag team champions.
“I think I am more disappointed than Nikki is because she’s such a positive person. Yes, I know she’s upset. But I am very upset for her because I know that she’s worked so incredibly hard for everything that she’s accomplished. She’s been in this business for a lot longer than I have. To not have her on the team is a little bit disrespectful. To have one half of your Tag Team Champions on the team and not the other half, it seems a little bit silly to me. We obviously work well enough together to be champions, so why not half Nikki on the team with us? I think we could really make some magic. I’m just disappointed, I really am.”
Rhea Ripley and Nikki A.S.H. would end up losing their WWE women’s tag team championships after Survivor Series. We will have to wait and see what is next in store for the team.
