Ronda Rousey denies she'll be participating in 2018 WWE Royal Rumble

Ronda Rousey denies she'll be participating in 2018 WWE Royal Rumble

Ronda Rousey's name has been floating around for a while and she's even a top name and odds-on favorite to win the first-ever Women's Royal Rumble match even though she's not on the card or even officially signed with WWE.

This year's Royal Rumble will take place on Sunday, Jan. 28, at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia at 7 p.m. EST/4 p.m. PT.

"I'm actually leaving to Colombia right now to finish shooting "Mile 22" and won't be back until mid-February".

A match with Rowdy Ronda and Charlotte Flair has been talked about for quite some time and it seemed like she was moving closer to the ring when Rousey started training with The Brian Kendrick and was said to be learning the ropes. "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".

In addition, WWE has announced three other events will take place in Phoenix during a four-day span in January of next year.




Finally, Levesque addressed the original question, which was whether or not Rousey would work a very part-time schedule if a deal came together, similar to the one fellow former UFC champion Brock Lesnar works now.

Baszler, who is now set to face Ember Moon for the NXT Women's championship at TakeOver: Philadelphia, has already made a successful transition to the squared circle while the other three Horsewomen, including Rousey, have been rumored to follow suit. Who has lasted the longest in a Rumble match?

"Regardless of what anyone's said, no pen to paper for me", Rousey said.

Then in the weeks following the event, Asuka would beat Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women's title, setting up a title match against Rousey at WrestleMania 34.

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross, who called the Mae Young Classic, told TMZ in August that Rousey's transition to professional wrestling is "inevitable". "She will get a lot of money and that's great".
