WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin has identified two current superstars who have a great future ahead of them. Speaking with Sam Roberts on the Notsam Wrestling podcast, Austin said Rhea Ripley and Bianca Belair impressed him with their performances at WWE Royal Rumble earlier this year. He believes that they are incredibly talented and can become major stars with a bit of polishing. The Texas Rattlesnake was quoted as saying:

"I haven’t been tuning in a whole lot because I have a whole lot going on in my personal life, but just from watching the Royal Rumble, I think those last two women—Rhea Ripley and Bianca Belair—I think those two are destined for greatness. They still need reps, they still need to learn, but those two have the size, presence, looks, ability to be major, major stars, so we’ll see what the future holds for them."

Both Ripley and Belair will compete in title matches at WWE WrestleMania 37. Royal Rumble 2021 winner Bianca Belair decided to challenge Sasha Banks for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship. On the other, Rhea Ripley recently made her debut on WWE RAW and challenged Asuka for the women’s championship of the Red brand.

Ever since his return on WWE SmackDown, Seth Rollins has found a target in Cesaro. The two superstars are feuding on the Blue brand and have been involved in several altercations over the last few weeks. Most of their meetings have ended with Cesaro swinging Rollins in the center of the ring, and the latter isn’t pleased with the humiliation.

He recently went off on social media as he posted a series of tweets in which he called Cesaro’s signature-move “trash.” While his disdain for the move is understandable, Cesaro is expected to come back with an epic response. Both WWE Superstars are currently scheduled to face each other at WrestleMania 37 and are actively looking for the best ways to get under each other’s skins.
