Rhea Ripley Explains Why She Challenged Charlotte Flair

Rhea Ripley Explains Why She Challenged Charlotte Flair
As noted, NXT Women's Champion Rhea Ripley confronted Charlotte Flair on last night's RAW, urging The Queen to challenge for her title at WrestleMania 36.

Flair was then announced for Wednesday's NXT episode on the USA Network as she will answer the challenge. Below is backstage video of Sarah Schreiber talking to Ripley about how she came to the decision to call Flair out.

"You know, everyone keeps talking about RAW and SmackDown, and who Charlotte Flair is gonna face, but they keep forgetting about NXT," Ripley said. "But down in NXT we're making our own waves and that's exactly what I prepared to do when I confronted Charlotte, was to make waves, and show her exactly that I am here."

The video also caught Ripley's reaction to the Flair - NXT announcement. Rhea Ripley said she's surprised to see The Queen step out of her comfort zone.

"To be quite honest, I'm very surprised," Ripley said. "I'm surprised because The Queen is stepping out of her comfort zone, her own little castle that she has here, built for herself. She's stepping out there and coming into my domain, so all I have to say for Charlotte is, see you in NXT."
