Bianca Belair Reveals Original Plans For Title Match At WrestleMania 37, Ivy Nile Talks Rhea Ripley



Ivy Nile battled Rhea Ripley on the ‘Day 1’ themed episode of Monday Night RAW and she recently reflected on that match.

In a recent interview with “WWE Die Woche,” Nile discussed her failed attempt at the Women’s World Championship on the January 1st episode of WWE RAW. She said,

“It was something that was like, another moment to show what I was made of. I’ve been a huge fan of Rhea Ripley for a long time, and the cool thing about this whole thing was I’ve probably watched every single match of hers since her time in NXT up until now. So I’ve had countless matches and years of film study on her, but for me, she didn’t really have much on me to watch. She’s had the past year or two to watch.

I really haven’t had that much of a chance to show what I’m made of, so I think I went into the match with an upper hand on that, knowing that I’ve had years and years on her and she really hasn’t had anything on me. So I think I went into that match with a huge surprise [for] her.”

Ripley defeated Nile to retain the WWE Women’s World Title at the show.

On a recent edition of “The MMA Hour” podcast, Bianca Belair revealed that the SmackDown Tag Team Title match on the pre-WrestleMania 37 edition of SmackDown was originally supposed to take place on the pay-per-view event itself.

The April 9th, 2021 episode of WWE SmackDown saw Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode defend the titles against The Street Profits, Chad Gable & Otis, and Dominik Mysterio & Rey Mysterio.

Belair said, “In the past, people don’t know this, but WrestleMania 37, he [Montez] was supposed to have a WrestleMania match. He got gear made, he had family coming in. Things change all the time, his match ended up getting moved to the night before on SmackDown.

He had every right to feel devastated and be down. He could have walked around like he had a cloud over his head, but the very next day, I was main eventing WrestleMania. That’s the balance where he chose to be a husband that night and be happy for me and proud of me and celebrate me instead of being a worker and being frustrated about his situation. That can be very difficult to do.”
