Triple H dialed back talk of Ronda Rousey signing with WWE. USA Today reported earlier this month that two sources close to Rousey said that Rousey was finalizing a deal with WWE.
“It’s funny because every now and then I wake up and I look at either social media or the news and I see a report and it’s like, well, that’s news to me because I’m the one who would be having that conversation,” Triple H said on CBS Sports’ In This Corner Podcast. “So it’s interesting with ‘sources say.'”
Rousey made her first WWE appearance at WrestleMania 31 in 2015, helping The Rock battle off Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. Since that appearance, she had often mentioned that she was interested in doing more with WWE.
“Everybody is very busy and I know that from Ronda’s side and her team, they are looking for an opportunity,” Triple H said. “I have made it very clear that an opportunity exists and it’s just a matter of us getting together and having conversations.
“I wish I had something more to tell you than that but we are just kind of talking and feeling where it goes and she is making movies and doing other things. But it’s exciting and there are a lot of interest on both sides so let’s see where it goes.”
The former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion hasn’t fought since suffering a first-round knockout to Amanda Nunes in December of 2016. She appeared at the May Young Classic earlier this year, and teased a possible WWE run this past October in an interview with TMZ.
