Shotzi Blackheart spoke with Give Me Sport to talk about a wide range of topics to promote Wednesday’s special Halloween Havoc edition of NXT, which she’ll be hosting.
During the interview, she was asked about WWE’s main roster, which led to her noting that she thinks Rhea Ripley belongs there and won’t be in NXT for much longer.
Usually, when WWE does their annual draft, some NXT stars are called up to the main roster, but that didn’t happen this year. Ripley is currently in a holding pattern while outside of challenging for the NXT Women’s Title.
“I think Rhea Ripley [will be called up next]. I don’t know what’s taking so long, honestly! She belongs up there, she’s a superstar. I think very soon she’ll be gone. That makes me sad because she’s one of my favorite tag team partners, but she deserves it!”
It should be noted that there’s been no recent talk of Ripley or any NXT stars going to the main roster. Blackheart also talked about her goals. Check out the full interview here.
