TMZ Reports Rousey Met With HHH

There is a story on the TMZ website which includes video footage of Triple H and Ronda Rousey leaving a restaurant in Los Angeles last night.

Ronda Rousey and HHH Meet In LA Story On TMZ Website

The article notes how it was interesting to see Hunter making this appointment at a time when Smackdown was being filmed miles away in Alabama. 

Both were seen departing the restaurant separately with Rousey being escorted by her agent.

Rousey has been one of the favourites to win the first-ever women's Royal Rumble match. As of the time of writing, she's 2/1 on websites like William Hill.

It should also be worth pointing out that there are reports that Rousey might be filming a movie around the time when the Rumble takes place.

The timing of the meeting is interesting.


  1. I'm coming around on the idea that Rousey might win the women's Rumble, especially if Asuka wins the women's title beforehand. They've been building up an Asuka vs. Alexa Bliss title match for a couple weeks now, with Asuka tapping Bliss on the New Year's Day Raw and Nia Jax laying out Asuka, possibly for Bliss, this past week. Asuka and Jax are scheduled for a singles match next week, which Asuka will likely win. Raw 25 could then feature a title match where Asuka wins the title, throwing the Rumble into chaos.

    Ronda Rousey would probably become the favorite to win if Asuka isn't in the match, and it would make sense to set her up to go after either Asuka or (more likely) Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 34. This only adds fuel to the flame that Rousey will debut in the match, and she'd probably have to win if she showed up. I'm considering betting it.

  2. I would like to mention the TMZ article did have a very big omission. Triple H was in LA with Stephanie to do something with the Television Critics Association, along with The Miz and Maryse. They discussed RAW 25 and the WWE Network there, along with Miz and Maryse's new TV series.

    So it could be as simple as Ronda and Triple H meeting up for dinner, since they are friends, and Ronda resides near the LA area.

    1. And the agent was there for free, right?

    2. That's a valid point, but also keep in mind that even if Ronda does come in, its possible she won't be debuting at the Rumble, as she'll (most likely) still be filming a movie at the time.

      Movie agencies are incredibly strict about actors taking unnecessary risks outside of filming.

      And TMZ did also report that she would be in Colombia/filming the day of the Rumble, and they have yet to walk that statement back.

    3. I’ve written about the movie in the post above and other posts where I’ve mentioned Ronda.

    4. Yeah, also I'd like to mention that apparently it was just published, but Triple H/WWE just released a statement to the Associated Press (AP) around 30 minutes ago that they still have nothing to announce/still haven't come to terms. While they did say they were discussing stuff with Ronda, it went no further than that.
