One of the strongest rumors heading into this weekend’s WWE Royal Rumble event is that former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey would make her pro wrestling debut at the event.
Rousey is shooting those rumors down, saying that she’ll be in Columbia filming the final scenes of a movie during Rumble weekend.
"I'm actually leaving to Colombia right now to finish shooting Mile 22 and won't be back until mid-February," she said to TMZ Sports.
According to IMDB, Mile 22 is about “a CIA field officer and an Indonesian police officer are forced to work together as they confront violent and extreme political corruption.” The former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion is starring in the film alongside Mark Wahlberg, John Malkovic, Lauren Cohan and a host of others.
The MMA fighter turned action movie star also says there is no WWE deal in place right now.
"I haven't signed anything," she said. "No pen to paper for me."
There is currently no release date set yet for Mile 22, while the 2018 incarnation of the WWE Royal Rumble is set for this Sunday Night from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
