Someone has to say no. There have been a lot of different stipulations over the years with all kinds of things on the line. Sometimes you see matches for cars, contracts, people and of course titles, but sometimes there are even stranger situations going on. Occasionally these rules make for some eyebrow raising conclusions, but what if there was going to be something taking place during a match? WWE had to shut something down on the way there late last year.
Rhea Ripley is one of the biggest stars to hit NXT in a long time. She has gotten all kinds of attention and even defeated Shayna Baszler to win the NXT Women’s Title. Ripley went on to compete at WrestleMania 36 in quite the moment, but this big push had to start somewhere. That would have been late last year, during which she took part in a pretty big match. It almost got even more memorable in an interesting way.
Ripley appeared on Flash Morgan Webster’s Wrestling Friends podcast and revealed an idea that she had for WarGames in November. The plan would have called for Bianca Belair to pull out a battery powered tattoo gun and draw a pair of lips on her legs while the rest of Belair’s team held her down. WWE would not let this take place as it was not considered hygienic. Ripley has previously mentioned that her legs are covered in tattoos but WWE will not allow her to get upper body tattoos.
The women’s WarGames match was one heck of a fight. Check out what we did get to see during the match:
Opinion: It’s certainly an interesting idea but I’m not sure how well it was going to work out. That would have worked rather well for the audience at home but how well would it have worked for fans in the arena? Ripley certainly did have something unique here though and maybe it could be used later. Hopefully she gets back to the top of the women’s division sooner rather than later as she is that big of a star.
What do you think of Ripley? Did she have a good idea? Let us know in the comments below.
