NXT women’s champion Charlotte Flair recently spoke to the Daily Mirror in the UK where The Queen praised the work of the woman she took the title from, Rhea Ripley. Flair commends the 23-year old Australian for her incredible performance under pressure at this year’s WrestleMania 36, and predicts that big things are in her future.
I always thought very highly of Rhea,” Charlotte admitted. “I think that watching her perform under pressure is what I took away, because I know that I’m a ‘pressure player’, meaning I perform probably almost better under pressure, and that’s exactly what she did. Rhea rose to the occasion and that lets me know that wherever her journey goes, she is going to succeed because she showed up to the occasion and that’s sometimes the hardest thing to do. You can have every tool and be extremely talented, but if you can’t perform well under pressure, then that will make or break you. Rhea did that, so I have no doubt in my mind that there are bigger things ahead for her.
