Rhea Ripley mentioned Becky Lynch’s young daughter on last week’s Raw ahead of their WrestleMania 40 match, and she recently explained why. Ripley mentioned Lynch’s daughter Roux on the March 25th episode of Raw, which only served to heighten the tention between the two going into their WWE Women’s World Title match at WrestleMania. She was asked during her appearance on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani why she did so, and you can see highlights below (via Wrestling Inc):

On Lynch being upset that her daughter was mentioned: “I understand. But at the end of the day, I feel like I just wasn’t getting through to her. Like I said I wanted her attention, it’s easy to get everyone else’s attention, I wanted her attention. So what’s the best way to get her attention? I mean there’s no better way than bringing up her daughter.”

On sending a message to Lynch: “I’m done being respectful at this point. I want to see that fighting Becky that I know is there deep down inside. I want her to realize that I could have all these things and I chose not to, but if driven to that point, I will.”
