‘Rhea Ripley vs. Charlotte Flair Should Headline WWE WrestleMania 39’
Alfred Konuwa of Forbes.
During the interview, Lita was asked about the Rhea Ripley vs. Charlotte Flair match for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 39 and whether it should be the main event of the show, something the company is reportedly planning to do.
“Charlotte’s natural role is to be a heel, right? Because it’s like that overconfident vibe,” said Lita. “I almost wonder if Rhea is going to bring that out of Charlotte because you can only get shown up with confidence so much before Charlotte puts it back in your face.”
Lita continued, “I know she is the heel in this match, but I’m rooting for [Rhea Ripley] because Charlotte has earned her shot, but she was also presented with a spot because of her lineage, and has just stepped up and continues to rise to the occasion. Whereas I do feel like Rhea created her spot, and she’s just getting started, but it has culminated in this high-profile match at WrestleMania.”
