Mami, It’s Your Time

Mami WWE

Hey everyone! It’s The Wrestling Takeover Jordan here with another opinion piece for DiscussPW. Today I thought we’d talk about the hottest female in the game. Her name is Rhea Ripley, aka ”Mami” and to others ”Papi.”

Rhea Ripley has been on an absolute tear ever since joining the group known as Judgement Day. With Finn Balor, Damien Priest, and newest member Dominik Mysterio. She has risen to be so popular as she has taken the terms ”Papi” and ”Mami” to something that makes fans go crazy. What’s next for Rhea Ripley as fans are loving her not only as a single but in the group Judgement Day?

There was a quote about Dominik Mysterio and her that made many fans jealous. She said something in The (New York Post Article) which was…

“Me and Dom Dom, we’re just going out there, and we’re having fun,” Ripley said. “We’re being menaces to society and just going out there and doing whatever we want. We’ve put our own spice onto it. This all started from wearing an ‘I’m Your Papi’ shirt. I knew that I was coming back, and I knew I wanted to screw with Ray on his (25th) anniversary. I was like, you know what, I’m going to order this shirt and wear it on TV, and that was it pretty much.

“After that, it kind of stuck, and it created this whole story that’s been going on that eventually ended up with Dom joining The Judgement Day. A lot of it is us going out there and just having fun, not taking anything too seriously, and knowing we want to go out there and screw with people and their train of thought.”

When asked why she thinks the WWE Universe has taken it to so much, Ripley thinks it comes down to the fact that people love to have them.

“People love to hate us, and that’s something not many people can do, go out there and have people sort of think that your cool and then absolutely hate you and what you do at the same time,” Ripley said. “It’s been fun for me going out there screwing with the fans. A lot of times, it doesn’t get caught on camera, but lately, it has been. It makes them feel like their part of the moment. So when it gets caught on camera, I love it so much.” So fans go crazy for her.


Rhea Ripley had an opportunity to become the number one contender for (C) Bianca Belair’s RAW Women’s Championship, and she didn’t win. I was nervous because I thought she was going to win, and the creative team was going to book Bianca Belair vs. Rhea Ripley at The 2023 Royal Rumble for The RAW Women’s Championship. Thank God that wasn’t the case, as I’ve been preaching that Rhea Ripley needs to win The Women’s Royal Rumble and then challenge Bianca Belair at WrestleMania 39 and win. Bianca Belair battled Sasha Banks at WrestleMania 37. She had that baby face run, and she and Rhea Ripley were the final two women in The Women’s Royal Rumble a couple of years ago. I said ”that’s a future women’s championship match at a WrestleMania.” Here is Triple H’s opportunity to do just that plus, I believe that Rhea Ripley’s rivalry can potentially be this generation’s Sasha Banks vs. Bayley.


Some out there might say that Rhea Ripley is already a superstar, which might be true. But I will combat and say that she hasn’t lived up to her fullest potential. She was once RAW Women’s Champion, and it wasn’t everything it was designed to do. This newest version of Rhea Ripley is a superstar because this is the version we should’ve seen this entire time. Rhea Ripley is so over that if she doesn’t win The Women’s Royal Rumble, then it would be a mistake in my eyes. Because Becky Lynch can get to Ronda Rousey another way. Rhea Ripley’s run has been amazing thus far because she has that attraction-like vibe. The WWE has protected Rhea Ripley, and she should get her shine at WrestleMania 39. Speaking of WrestleMania 39… I want to leave you all with this news bite (On a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that the current plan is for Ripley to face Bianca Belair at WrestleMania 39. There’s still plenty of time between now and April for things to change, of course, but Ripley vs. Belair would be one of the top matches on one night of the event.) Thanks for reading. See you all when I see you. Woooo!
