Rhea Ripley’s popularity continues to soar, solidifying her status as one of the top female athletes in the company, despite facing criticism. Despite any backlash she receives, she emerged victorious at WrestleMania 40 on Saturday. She revealed that she suffered a major panic attack before the match, highlighting the mental and emotional toll of competing at such a high level.

The Man earned her opportunity to face Mami by winning the Women’s Elimination Chamber match two months ago. To start WrestleMania 40 Saturday, she had to contend with one of the most unpredictable and formidable competitors of all time, Rhea Ripley. The Eradicator emerged victorious over Big Time Becks in solid match.

While speaking during her panel at WWE World today, The Eradicator revealed to the world that she suffered a 2-hour panic attack prior to her match with Becky Lynch at WrestleMania Saturday.

“I legit was having a straight-up panic attack for 2 hours before I walked through the curtain. I was like violently shaking, just nervous. If you don’t get nervous before you go out, especially at WrestleMania, you obviously don’t love it enough. That’s the way I think about it. I’m glad that the nerves were there.”


Rhea Ripley also won a couple of Slammy Awards this year to boot. It remains to be seen what the future holds for Rhea Ripley, as she stands as an indomitable force as the Women’s World Champion. Judging by her performance, it seems unlikely that anyone will be able to defeat her.
