Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) superstar Ronda Rousey has had her share of ups and downs in UFC and is currently on hiatus from the octagon. A return, however, may be looming, though this time, it may involve a four-cornered ring.
The 30-year-old former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion was seen having dinner with Paul Levesque, better known as Triple H, in a restaurant in Los Angeles earlier this week, Yahoo Sports reported. Levesque, who is a WWE legend, is also the company's executive vice president of talent, live events and creative, and their meeting raised the speculations that Rousey may soon make the jump to the WWE.
The wrestling icon, however, did not divulge what he and Rousey talked about over dinner. Although, Yahoo Sports noted, that Levesque spoke with the Associated Press over the phone on Wednesday. "We have nothing to announce at this time, 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," said the wrestling icon who is also the husband of Stephanie McMahon, daughter of WWE chairman Vince McMahon.
"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," Levesque added. Meanwhile, the New York Post said that should Rousey decide to move to the WWE, the timing will just be perfect. The sports entertainment company will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of "Monday Night Raw" on Jan. 22, with two shows slated to take place at the Manhattan Center and Barclays Center.
Moreover, the Sunday of that weekend will also be the annual Royal Rumble pay-per-view, where the first ever women's Royal Rumble match will take place. TMZ Sports also caught up with Rousey after the dinner, thought the MMA superstar remained mum on the rumored WWE jump. "I really enjoy fine dining. The duck's good," were Rousey's parting words.
