Rhea Ripley Had A Panic Attack Before WrestleMania 40, Nick Aldis Predicts WWE’s Future



Rhea Ripley defeated Becky Lynch to retain the WWE Women’s World Championship at WrestleMania 40 (Night One).

In a recent interview with “The Ten Count” podcast at “WWE World,” Ripley revealed that she had a panic attack a couple of hours before her title match at WrestleMania 40 (Night One).

Mami said, It’s quite funny how this whole thing works in this crazy world. I legit was having a straight-up panic attack two hours before I walked through the curtain, and I was 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. So I’m glad the nerves were there. But at the same time, that was sort of taking over my body. So when I got to step through into the stage with the band Motionless in White, all those nerves that I had just sort of flew away. I was in the zone, I was moshing out like it was a little mosh pit. I was living in the moment, and that’s what I love about this business. We get to live in the moment a lot of the time. I just snap into Rhea Ripley, and I’m instantly comfortable, instantly ready to go and ready to fight.”

In a recent appearance on the “Gabby AF” podcast, WWE SmackDown General Manager Nick Aldis explained why now is the best time to be a WWE Superstar and predicted the company’s future.

Aldis said, I can certainly say I can’t imagine there’s a better time to be a WWE superstar than right now. Obviously the money, and the schedule, because if you were on Hogan’s train in the ’80s that was great, right? But you were probably away from your family 29 days out of every month, probably not too different in the Attitude Era either. We’re really just in the beginning of it, the sky’s the limit. I’ve got some really big kind of predictions for where we go after the Netflix deal, and I think there’s some innovations that will probably take place within WWE in the next year or two years [that] will exponentially grow this brand and this phenomenon even more — more globally than it’s ever been.”
