Rhea Ripley is certainly one of the top female WWE Superstars right now and there is no one she is afraid to face, whether it be man or woman. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that she wants to square off against CM Punk in the future.

For well over a year, the Women’s World Champion had been feuding with men on both Monday Night RAW and Friday Night SmackDown, especially taking out stars such as Akira Tozawa, Luke Gallows, Kevin Owens and many more.

While speaking during an interview with the BWGS Pod, Rhea Ripley expressed her desire to wrestle CM Punk. Ripley mentioned that her top three favorites growing up were Triple H, The Miz, and Punk.

So my three favorites growing up were Triple H, which is wild because he’s my boss. The other one was The Miz. I absolutely love The Miz and the third one was CM Punk. So, I don’t know (which one of them I’d wrestle in their prime). It’s hard because they’ve all had such amazing careers and they’ve had such amazing milestones. For me, I feel like I still have so much to go. I feel like right now, I’m at a very good moment.


My momentum’s growing and we’re just getting bigger and bigger but I feel like I still haven’t reached what they were able to reach. So it’s wild to think that I could possibly accomplish things that they accomplished and if I were to step in the ring with them… You remember seeing Triple H back in the day? Exactly (he was in great shape).”

When asked which one she would like to share the ring with, Ripley mentioned she would like to face Punk, citing his entertaining promos and overall impact on the industry. She expressed that facing any of the three would be a learning experience, helping elevate her to the next level in her career.

”I would like to face Punk (Ripley said after it was mentioned that the match is still a possibility). Especially with the way that he did his promos and the way that he just did everything. It was always entertaining and I feel like if I were to step into a storyline with any of the three, I would learn so much and it would definitely help skyrocket Rhea Ripley to the next level sort of thing.

We have already confirmed CM Punk’s status for WrestleMania 40 and it won’t see him face Rhea Ripley. However, that does not mean WWE can’t book Punk vs Ripley in the future, as Punk previously mentioned how he wanted to bodyslam Rhea Ripley.
