Wrestlemania XL Kickoff Recap – February 8, 2024

WWE Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley is out next, talking up being the most dominant woman holding a title in the company before noting that Bayley has made her choice to go against her former friend Iyo at WrestleMania. She talks about the challenge ahead of her when she heads home for Elimination Chamber Perth…and is interrupted by Becky Lynch.

Becky calls out the champion, promising she will win the Elimination Chamber to earn her shot at Mami’s title…assuming Ripley makes it past Nia Jax in Perth. This leads to a stare down and some jaw jacking before Adam Pearce intervenes.
