WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry had high praise for NXT Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley on his Busted Open Radio show.
Henry noted how impressed he is with how much she has achieved at such a young age, "At twenty three years old I was I was still lifting. I hadn’t even got into wrestling yet. Yet she’s already been in it, been there, done that…at twenty three years old. What will she do in the next fifteen twenty years? I’m gonna tell you, she’s going to transcend wrestling."
He added, "she’ll be the next Rock. She will be the next John Cena, she will be able to be the next Batista. She should be able to go outside of wrestling and make a living because she’ll be a big mainstream star."
Rhea Ripley became new NXT Women’s Champion after defeating Shayna Baszler this past Wednesday on NXT on USA Network.
