Rhea Ripley talks about her injury

She revealed that it would pop back into place, and “it’s good” now. Ripley was able to enjoy a record stay in the Royal Rumble Match, lasting over an hour en route to her victory.

She spoke about the situation during the post-show press conference. Here is what Rhea Ripley said:

“I’m obviously beat up. My knees aren’t very good in general. My knee did dislocate for a second, and then it went back in. I’m feeling good now, and because of all my emotions, I’m just excited, so I’m blocking out everything else. If anything, I can smell blood in my nose, and that’s definitely there, but my knee is good,” said Ripley.

She is set to get a Women’s title shot at WrestleMania 39. However, she further stated that she’s not yet sure who she will pick, but she enjoys sharing the ring with Bianca Belair.

“I’m gonna have a lot of thinking to do before WrestleMania. I’m very torn by this decision. I’ve stepped in the ring with Bianca many times, and I absolutely love every second in the ring with her. I think that we bring out a side of each other that not many people will see, and we really take each other to the absolute limit,” said Ripley.

She added that she also wants to finally defeat Charlotte Flair and become a Women’s Grand Slam Champion:

“But then again, it’s the same with Charlotte. She also holds the SmackDown Women’s Championship. So if I were to choose her, I can not only beat her for the first time ever in a singles match, which is something that I really, really want to do, but I also become a Grand Slam champion if I do. So I have a lot of thinking to do,” she added.
