Rhea Ripley recently discussed the WWE Draft and her competition in the women’s tag team division. In particular, she highlighted a team that would be a tough opponent for her and Nikki A.S.H.

The Nightmare has been a breakout star since she arrived on the red brand, and even added the RAW Women’s Championship to her growing collection of titles when she defeated Asuka at WWE WrestleMania 37. A few months later, Ripley won the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship with A.S.H. on the September 20 episode of RAW.

In an interview with TV Insider, Ripley mentioned that she would like to see a pairing between Sonya Deville and Shayna Baszler. The Nightmare added that the two women would be tough competition for her and Nikki A.S.H. if the two teams faced off in the ring.

"Honestly, if Sonya Deville returns back in the ring, I’d think pairing her with Shayna Baszler would be good," said Ripley. "They would be a tough challenge for sure."

Sonya Deville has not competed in a match since her return to WWE earlier this year. Baszler, on the other hand, has been on a dominant run recently. She put her former partner, Nia Jax on the shelf in a vicious attack, and the former NXT Women's Champion also assaulted Eva Marie the following week on WWE RAW.

The Nightmare is excited for the WWE Draft because it allows for fresh matchups and new storylines. In the interview, she also stated that she would be comfortable competing either on RAW or SmackDown.

WWE kicked off the draft this week on SmackDown, and Rhea Ripley and Nikki A.S.H. were drafted to RAW in the third round. It will be interesting to see whether the reigning Women's Tag Team Champions remain exclusive to the red brand or continue to defend the titles on both shows moving forward.

Would you like to see Rhea Ripley and Nikki A.S.H. go up against Sonya Deville and Shayna Baszler in the future? Let us know in the comments below.
