• Triple H Says Ronda Rousey Is Coming Back & Pitching Ideas For Her Return
MMA Junkie interviewed WWE Hall of Famer Triple H during the media scrum after WWE Crown Jewel 2019 press conference and was asked about former RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey’s status.
Below is what Triple H said:
“Don’t have a specific timeline but she’s with us. This is family for her. She’s coming back. She has said it, she calls us all the time. I think the biggest tear for her right now is trying to do what she wants in her personal life and just missing this.
There’s… it’s hard to explain, this is like a family and there is a brotherhood, and a sisterhood, here that’s deep with people.
I don’t think she understood that walking in the door, but when she got here… she said to me multiple times, ‘It was like the family I never knew I was missing, and the group of friends and the environment I never knew I was missing.’
I think she misses that greatly. She talks to everybody all the time, she’s constantly with us, and she’s constantly pitching her return. So, if I had to guess, it would be sooner rather than later, but who knows?”
Rousey was last seen on WWE programming in the main event of WrestleMania 35 earlier this year, where she was pinned by Becky Lynch.
