Ripley recently spoke with Gary Cassidy of Sportskeeda about a wide range of topics including Triple H’s comments about the WWE boss regarding this program.
According to Ripley, she takes pride that McMahon thinks so highly of her. She also talked about the respect that she has for Triple H.
“It’s insane to think that all the higher-ups think so highly of me,” Ripley said. “Especially coming from Adelaide, Australia to now being a part of WWE and having people like Triple H – who was the reason I started wrestling – to have him and Vince McMahon, Paul Heyman actually enjoy what I’m doing and believe in me – it’s a wonderful feeling, and I don’t know how to put it into words.
“It just makes me feel very special and proud of how far I’ve come in this business – and how much work, time and effort, blood, sweat and tears I’ve put into this.”
