The big question that is being asked for this Sunday’s Royal Rumble is if former UFC Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey will be entering the first-ever women’s over-the-top rope Rumble match.
Earlier this month, TMZ caught Triple H, Ronda Rousey, and her agent Brad Slater exiting a restaurant in Los Angeles. Triple H did not talk, but the TMZ paparazzo did manage to get a few words out of Rousey and Slater. They did not divulge any important information and rumors are now that the whole thing was “staged” and the info that all three were at the same restaurant was leaked to TMZ by WWE themselves to create buzz surrounding the Rumble.
Several betting sites such as 1xbet are offering bets on Rousey winning the Royal Rumble with odds from top bookmakers ranging from 10/11 to 11/8. There are also odds on other former WWE female Superstars such as AJ Lee, Trish Stratus, Lita, Stacy Keibler, Michelle McCool, Beth Phoenix, and others. WWE needs to add 11 women currently not on the roster to hit the 30 mark so surprise entrants are certainly expected.
Rousey has been busy training over the past few months and did work at the WWE Performance Center as well. Triple H insists that the two sides are still discussing options, saying Rousey is interested in what they have to offer and obviously the company is delighted to have her as well.
