Triple H has finally opened up about the future of former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.
Triple H appeared on various ESPN shows on Thursday to promote the Mae Young Classic on the WWE Network. During his appearance on First Take, “The Game” talked about Rousey’s future in the WWE.
It’s believed that Rousey’s MMA career is over following her devastating loss to current UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Amanda Nunes at the UFC 207 pay-per-view event that took place last December. Now, the question for wrestling fans is if WWE would be still interested in having Rousey appear on their television shows.
If you recall, at WrestleMania 31, Rousey did a segment with The Rock, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in which she got physical with McMahon. WWE did have plans for Rousey at WrestleMania 32 last year in Dallas, Texas but things didn’t pan out because of Rousey’s hectic schedule.
Rousey attended the Mae Young Classic TV tapings in Winter Park, Florida at Full Sail University in July and was seen hanging out with Triple H. Anything is possible in the land of the WWE. It’s obvious that the company would love to have Rousey appear at an event or even wrestle.
Despite her recent MMA downfall, she is still a name that will draw with people and gather attention with the media. Rousey is a big WWE fan, and if WWE could throw enough money at her, a deal could be made. Here is what Triple H had to say (transcript courtesy of WrestleZone):
“Ronda has been a fan of WWE her whole life, she’s been adamant about that, and she’s done stuff with us before. You’re watching a clip [ESPN airing a clip from Wrestlemania 31] of her throwing me, I don’t know why you’re showing it, but she tends to throw me around when I see her. She’s a huge fan, I think it’s something she’s definitely interested in. I’ll throw it out right now; if she’s interested, I’ll give her the opportunity. We’re all about personalities, and that’s what she brings to the table. I think she’s shown it in UFC, she’s shown it in Hollywood, she’s shown it everywhere. Her personality will drive fan interest.”
