"I'm very proud of how far the Women's Division has come," Ripley said in an interview with AusGamers earlier this year. "When I was in Australia watching it, they didn't get the time or the opportunities that we get today, but they were still fighting for it, every single Monday and Friday; fighting for their spots and what they were doing on TV and just really did pave the way for the Women's Division these days. And to see how far it has come over the last nine years… is absolutely insane. And I'm so proud of everyone and all the hard work they've put in."
