As can be seen in the video below, Tony Nese was struggling to complete his set when Rhea Ripley appeared out of nowhere and slapped him, in an attempt to motivate him to finish the set. Nese proceeded to do the same and left the spot before blurting out an expletive.
Nese posted the link on his official Twitter handle later, and got a reply from Ripley. Check it out below:
Rhea Ripley has been making waves lately, and is being hailed by many as a future megastar. At NXT TakeOver: WarGames 2019, Team Ripley (Rhea Ripley, Candice LeRae, Tegan Nox, and Dakota Kai) defeated Team Baszler (Shayna Baszler, Bianca Belair, Io Shirai, and Kay Lee Ray).
The next night at Survivor Series 2019, Ripley won the 5-on-5-on-5 Women's Elimination match for her team by hitting Sasha Banks with a Riptide and pinning her.
