Rhea Ripley spoke about how she was an avid collector of Funko Pops when she was younger. Her collection consisted mainly of Dragon Ball Z figures back in the day.
“Everything is extremely spot on this is bloody epic I’ve loved Funko Pops since I was younger. I had so many Dragon Ball Z ones, I had so many ones in general, so it’s wild that I actually have turned into one I’ve been waiting for this for a long time. I love it!”
Becoming a Funko Pop was unbelievable for Rhea Ripley. She went on to say how it was her dream to have her very own Funko Pop after becoming a WWE superstar
I never never thought that I would be a Funko Pop. Like I’ve since I started here in WWE it’s the one thing that I really wanted like I wanted an action figure so bad, but I definitely wanted a Funko pop and like it’s just insane that it’s finally that day, and she’s such a little badass.
The new line of Funko Pops are up for pre-orders. Others in the line include Cody Rhodes, Rocky Miavia, Ted DiBiase, Bianca Belair, and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat. They also have a nice WrestleMania I VHS Walmart exclusive deal. You can check out Mami’s video for the Funko site below.
