Rhea Ripley recently spoke with Scott Fishman of TV Insider to discuss a wide range of topics.
During it, she opened up on tagging alongside Nikki A.S.H as they have become tag team champions.
“At first I was a little bit standoffish,” Ripley said. “But she is growing on me. She is such a good person, warm-hearted and positive. Sometimes you just need someone like that behind you, especially when you’re someone like me who just goes out there and brutalizes people. Sometimes I need to calm down a little bit, so I’m glad to have Nikki by my side.
“To be honest, I’m having the time of my life right now in this tag team. It’s a lot of fun. I do miss singles competition and do love it, but there are always times for a change. Right now, I think the fact we won the women’s tag team championship is truly incredible. And to do it with someone like Nikki and was in NXT when I first started. I really looked up to her. To hold these titles with her is truly extraordinary.”
