Former WWE and UFC women's champion Ronda Rousey will be appearing on this week's episode of the After The Bell podcast with host Corey Graves. WWE has released a preview of Rousey's interview, where the Baddest Woman on the Planet reveals what match she wants to see at this year's WrestleMania. Rousey hopes that women's Royal Rumble winner Charlotte Flair chooses NXT champion Rhea Ripley instead of opting to face long-time rival Becky Lynch once again.
I really hope that Charlotte picks Rhea Ripley. I really do. I mean, Charlotte and Becky have great matches but they've had so many of them I feel like it's time to get some new girls in the situation, and Charlotte and Rhea should... even just body types in general, and the athleticism, and everything like that. It's just a unique match that I think they could put on definitely a WrestleMania level of show. This has been NXT's year, and I think it's their time to be the... the first time that they're picked by a Royal Rumble winner, and faced at 'Mania.
Rousey then goes on to praise Ripley's work in NXT, and even admits that she would like to step into the ring with Ripley one day down the line.
Oh, my God. Rhea Ripley, she is doing amazing," Rousey said. "Like, I would love to be in a match with her some day. She matches up with everybody so differently, and there are so many things that she could really pull out of people that they can't do with anybody else. So, I'm really looking forward to seeing if we ever get that opportunity, but I'd love to get in the ring with her. She's fantastic.
Rousey's WWE contract reportedly goes through April 2021. Whether we see Rousey back in a WWE ring in 2020 remains to be seen. Check out her full comments, including her thoughts on fellow Horsewoman Shayna Baszler, in the video above. (H/T and transcribed by Wrestling Inc.)
