Rhea Ripley’s position as one of the top female WWE Superstars is undeniable, with her popularity steadily increasing week by week. Not only does she consistently excel in the ring, but she also has a talent for delivering what fans desire. However, a recent stinkface spot performed by Ripley has sparked controversy, with Becky Lynch expressing concern that it sends the wrong message to viewers.

During a WWE live event in Springfield, Illinois last week, Rhea Ripley faced off against Nia Jax in a singles match that sparked nostalgia among fans. In a playful tribute to Bloodline member Rikishi, Ripley incorporated one of his signature moves into the bout. To the audience’s delight, Ripley delivered stinkface to Nia Jax, adding cheeky touch to the match.

While speaking to Steve Fall, Becky Lynch shared her thoughts on the viral stinkface spot. The Man made it clear that she believes such a spot only sends the wrong message to young girls and aspiring wrestlers.

“That just sucks that we’re talking about that. You know, like when I think of the amount of women that were at one stage, fighting against that treatment, like, that was what they were forced to do in two-minute matches. Maybe I’m just like stuffy and and jaded because this is the stuff that I had to fight against. Of course, everybody loves it, and it’s cool and it’s edgy. But if I’m a little girl sitting in the crowd, and if I have my daughter, and she’s seeing that and she’s thinking that that’s what she needs to be if she’s a professional wrestler. And that’s the stuff that’s getting a reaction and if I’m a girl who’s grown up and wants to be a professional wrestler, and I see, oh well that’s the stuff that gets a reaction. And that’s the stuff that people are talking about. And that’s the stuff that we’re posting on social media, and we continue to and even the company does and pushes that, then that is the stuff that gets over and then I’m not taken seriously for what I do in the ring.”


”And for the person that I am in the mind that I have. No, it’s just about my body. It’s about how it looks. And it’s about fulfilling a bunch of men’s fantasies out there in the crowd, and it becomes not about the art it becomes about that. And I’ve fought so long to change that and so I kind of go when I’m talking about that, and when I’m forced to answer about that, I go that just f**king sucks. That just f**king sucks.”

Even Shayna Baszler begged Rhea Ripley to give her stinkface during a recent WWE live event. Nevertheless, the spot ended up becoming a hit among fans, but Becky Lynch will never be a fan.
