Shawn Michaels On Rhea Ripley’s Growth

 During an interview with Riju Dasgupta for Sportskeeda, Shawn Michaels discussed Rhea Ripley’s growth.

“When she started out with us in NXT, man, I’m just telling you, you could see her grow. You could see her confidence grow, watch her evolve and just turn into a fantastic performer. Then she came over here to NXT and continued that ascension,” Michaels said. “I’m not surprised one bit at her success on the main roster, and she’s still so very young.”

Ripley helped Dominik Mysterio retain the NXT North American Championship on the August 8 episode of WWE NXT. Check out their post-match comments here.
