Triple H Confirms Conversations With Ronda Rousey, Comments On Potential Rumble Appearance

As noted yesterday, Triple H apparently skipped out on Tuesday’s SmackDown Live tapings to have dinner with Ronda Rousey in Los Angeles. TMZ speculated WWE and Rousey are “one step closer” to sealing the deal.

ESPN.com released a new report early this morning regarding WWE’s relationship with Ronda Rousey. Here are some highlights:

On where talks between WWE and Ronda Rousey stand:

“We are talking to Ronda, as we’ve been for a while,” Levesque, better known as wrestling superstar Triple H, told the Associated Press on Wednesday. “She has a lot of things going on. We have a lot of things going on. But we have a great relationship with her, a very friendly standpoint for a long period of time now. It was great to catch up with her.”

On the chances Rousey will appear in the WWE’s first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble match:

“We have nothing to announce at this time,” Levesque said. “But she’s a huge fan of what we do and she’s incredibly interested in what we do and the opportunities that lie there. We’re fans of hers and incredibly interested in what those opportunities could be with us. But there’s a lot of things to walk through. We’re talking. We’re having conversations.”

The article also notes that UFC President Dana White said in July that Ronda Rousey was most likely going to be retiring from MMA.
