That is some high praise. Women’s wrestling has come a long way since the Women’s Revolution of 2015. Since then, women have done just about everything there is to do in wrestling, including headlining WrestleMania. Some of the female stars of today’s WWE are among the best in the world, and now one of their male counterparts has quite the praise for a reigning champion.

WWE’s Grayson Waller appeared on the After The Bell podcast with Corey Graves, where he was asked about his thoughts on fellow Australians in WWE. Waller mentioned Rhea Ripley, who he felt might be the biggest star in all of the company. He went on to say that he felt sorry for Damian Priest, who would be greeted by chants for Ripley anywhere he went. Ripley is currently the Women’s World Champion, having won what would become the title at WrestleMania 39.

He might not be wrong. Check out Ripley, plus what Waller has done in WWE:

Opinion: While I’m not sure if Ripley is the biggest star in WWE, there aren’t very many above her. Ripley has taken the women’s division by storm and feels like a huge deal every time she is doing anything in WWE. At the worse, Ripley is right there near the top and that is rather impressive as she is only 26 years old and could have a very long time in front of her in WWE if that is what she wants to do.

What do you think of Waller’s comments? Who is the top star in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
