WWE NXT Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley was recently interviewed by talkSport to talk about a variety of professional wrestling topics.
During the conversation, Ripley made a rather interesting revelation. Ripley noted that, ever since she was a little girl, she wanted to be the most tattooed human being ever. After explaining her love for tattoos, Ripley revealed that WWE has actually banned her from getting tattooed on her upper body.
Ripley explained that the reason she wears pants on WWE TV is to cover up the ink on her lower body.
“My dream since being a little girls is to be the most tattooed human ever. I just love tattoos, I don’t know why! I’ve always loved them. But, unfortunately for me, WWE isn’t clearing my upper body [for tattoos] – that’s why I wear pants!
“I got pants so I wouldn’t have to clear my tattoos because you can’t see them. I’m trying to finish my leg sleeves, then hopefully I can convince people to let me get my arm sleeves and other stuff, but we’ll see how that goes.”
Ripley is currently locked in a feud with 2020 Women’s Royal Rumble winner Charlotte Flair. She’ll defend her NXT Women’s Championship against Ripley at WrestleMania 36 on April 5 from the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
