"First of all, she has to stop throwing me around the ring," Triple H joked, referring to their in-ring tussle during WrestleMania 31. "Ronda is a huge fan. That has not been a secret. That's where the 'Rowdy' Ronda comes from." (Rousey's nicknamed after 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper.) "She's definitely interested. We're having conversations. I'll say it right here on ESPN, if she wants the opportunity, I'll be willing to give it to her," Triple H said.

Fightful managing editor Sean Ross Sapp reported exclusively on that Rousey is very interested in wrestling for WWE. Rousey spoke to Triple H to set up her appearance with fellow Four Horsewomen members Shayna Baszler, Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir at the Mae Young Classic. According to sources, WWE had referred Rousey and company to current superstar Brian Kendrick, who trained Eva Marie in the past, for training purposes in Southern California. Baszler is currently taking part in the Mae Young Classic.
