In the segment below, Zelina poses the question about their first meetings. Belair discusses how much she wanted to wrestle Ripley after seeing her during a class with Sara Amato.
“She was in there throwing dropkicks, she was taking punches and I was just like ‘I wanna wrestle her! I like her! I wanna make some magic in the ring with her!” – Belair
The conversation naturally progresses to the NXT TakeOver: WarGames match from 2019 that featured Team Ripley vs Team Baszler with Belair and Ripley on opposing sides.
“To be able to have that relationship with each other and then go in the ring and create that magic with each other.”- Belair
A Raw Women’s Championship match between the two was originally planned but an injury sidelined The Nightmare and it is yet to be revisited. Her replacement was Carmella for this match and it took place at the Money in the Bank event.
Table for 3: Generation Now premieres today on the WWE Network and Peacock:
Bianca Belair, Rhea Ripley and Queen Zelina look back fondly on the sisterhood they forged while in NXT and discuss their future aspirations as the next generation of WWE Superstars. – WWE Network
