During the Monday Night Raw episode aired on December 19, 2022, WWE decided to stage an intergender match, which has rarely happened in the company's history, especially in recent years. After a match between men starring Judgment Day, the Street Profits and Akira Tozawa, Rhea Ripley slapped Tozawa before throwing him a challenge for a match and in the end via a Riptide it was the Australian who won the contest.
staging together with his opponent the first intergender match in WWE after months and months since the last one was done. After this sensational victory, fans began to ask Triple H for more intergender matches on social media, always mentioning Rhea Ripley of course, who has now become one of the most popular workers in the Stamford company.
And now it was she who answered on the subject, interviewed by FOX 61.
Rhea Ripley: "I would like to see more intergender matches in WWE"
The SmackDown champion, after also bodyslamming Luke Gallows and exchanging some threatening looks with Solo Sikoa, said: "I would love to, just for the pure fact that I also love hitting men.
I like to show them exactly who I am and demonstrate my dominance. It's a different kind of emotion for me because you get to see the fear in their eyes when they realize that they took you lightly, that they didn't take you as a threat to begin with.
I hope so, but I'm not entirely sure what the future holds." The particular thing is that one of Rhea Ripley's greatest mentors, namely Scotty 2 Hotty, was strongly opposed to matches between men and women, saying: "Dear promoters, I DO NOT FIGHT against women.
I am 49 years old and have a daughter of 20. I don't like hurting women. I understand that there are some men who do it nowadays. But it's not my thing. If it makes me look too old or out of the loop, that's okay. Please stop booking me like this."
