The NXT star said: “I went through a lot of struggles, and I didn’t have much, like, guidance from my family because I couldn’t really contact them ’cause of the time zones. When they’re sleeping, I was awake. When they’re awake, I’m sleeping. It drags on you mentally.”

During the interview Ripley also spoke about how disappointed she was during WrestleMania match up against Charlotte Flair as her family would not be able to attend the show live amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The event took place at WWE Performance Center and had no crowd in the attendance.

She said: “It wasn’t the fact that there was going to be zero people in attendance, but it was the fact that my family couldn’t be there to be part of this moment with me. That really sucked. It made me really sad and depressed”

With Rhea Ripley’s return to WWE screen, her family will have a closer look on the red brand to witness their family girl.
