Rhea Ripley was honored when she found out she’s someone WWE Hall of Famer Lita would like to have a match against.

In fact, Lita recently said her dream match would be getting into the ring against Ripley.

“It’s wild,” Ripley told Sporting News Australia. “Absolutely wild. Just talking to her is insane to me. Like she’s such a wonderful human and to know that someone like Lita, someone that’s been in this business for years and paved the way for all of us girls, she wants to wrestle me. It’s mind-blowing, absolutely mind-blowing and I really hope that does happen.

So WWE, if you’re listening to this interview, please, please. I would love that too. And like you said because she might not have many matches left in her if I can be one of the last like would be absolutely insane and I’m down for it.”

Lita recently returned to WWE for a brief run. She crossed paths with Rhea Ripley when they were entrants in the women’s Royal Rumble in January. That led to a storyline with RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch that culminated at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view in February.

“I’ve had many conversations with Lita,” Ripley said. “And everything that she says I take in and she’s really, like, whenever she talks to me, she pretty much explains to me how much she believes in me and that’s like, the number one thing that really does help me.

To have someone like her believe in me and believe that I could possibly be the face of the women’s division in WWE like that’s all I need to hear to light the fire under my a** and just keep going and keep pushing through. And lucky for me, I get to fight her a little bit in the Royal Rumble. She kind of taught me a lesson there as well. Nearly had her there though.”
