WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry recently appeared on the Busted Open radio show where he was seen praising the new NXT Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley. Mark Henry stated that at the age of 23, Rhea Ripley has achieved one of the highest titles in WWE. He added that in the coming future, Rhea Ripley is going to transcend wrestling. He said that when she leaves the company, she will become a mainstream star.
“she’ll be the next Rock. She will be the next John Cena, she will be able to be the next Batista. She should be able to go outside of wrestling and make a living because she’ll be a big mainstream star,” said Mark Henry in the Busted Open Radio show.
"She's only 23 years old, what's the next 15 years gonna look like? She's going to transcend wrestling... She'll be the next one to make a living outside the business. Her look is so different than anyone else right now." - @TheMarkHenry on @RheaRipley_WWE pic.twitter.com/j4KrwkNZlg— SiriusXM Busted Open (@BustedOpenRadio) December 20, 2019
