#6 Rhea Ripley
Even though Rhea Ripley has been on the independent circuit for several years, her breakout year in wrestling came at the Mae Young Classic in 2017 when she made it through to the second round. Since then, she has appeared on the Mae Young Classic again, this time getting to the semi-finals, before going on to become the inaugural WWE NXT UK Women’s Champion.
Her four-month reign came to an end against Toni Storm just over a week ago. Hence, this would be the perfect time for Ripley to be able to showcase her talents at one of the big four pay-per-views, and a strong showing at the Royal Rumble would further boost her portfolio to eventually make the jump onto one of the main weekly shows.Published 23 Jan 2019, 12:22 IST
