Triple H Says Vince McMahon Came Up With the Idea For Rhea Ripley vs. Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 36


During the post-WWE NXT Takeover: Portland media call, Triple H said the decision to do Rhea Ripley vs. Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 36 was Vince McMahon’s call and he had nothing to do with it. Triple H says he was shocked at first. He said,

“Actually, USA Network had no involvement in it at all. To be honest, it was shocking to me when it was first mentioned to me. I believe that this was just a decision from Vince’s part on understanding the other stories for the women. To me, you have opportunities where you look in a moment in time and ask is Charlotte going after Bayley and Sasha Banks [on SmackDown], does she come after Becky Lynch [on Raw]. You’ve seen that before and we’re looking into something fresh and you see that with Shayna Baszler going after Becky Lynch and you see that in different ways on SmackDown with where they’re going. So this was a way for Charlotte Flair needing to be in that big, epic role. I think it really had nothing more to do with that. It’s good storytelling and that’s what the goal is here, good storytelling across the board.”
