Ronda Rousey says despite swirling rumors that she will make her WWE debut on Sunday; at the inaugural women’s Royal Rumble match in Philadelphia, the former UFC champion continues to deny it.

Where will she be during Royal Rumble weekend!?

On Thursday, TMZ asked the former UFC champion about possibly competing at the royal rumble this Sunday; The 30-year-old, who hasn’t appeared in the Octagon since a 48-second TKO loss to Amanda Nunes in 2016, also revealed she will be out of the country this weekend.

“I appreciate everyone’s confidence [about joining WWE], but I’m actually leaving to Colombia right now to finish shooting [the Mark Wahlberg film] ‘Mile 22’ and I won’t be back until mid-February.”

Since this is WWE, fans need to take her comment with a grain of salt, because of the company longing for the element of surprise.

Although she said a Royal Rumble appearance is off the table, she did not decline something is in the works. She was recently photographed having dinner with WWE COO Triple H, but she reiterated nothing is a done deal.

 “I haven’t signed anything regardless to what anyone’s said,” she said. “No pen to paper for me.”

Triple H’s comment:

The COO, who has publicly shared his interest in signing her ever since her memorable WrestleMania 31 appearance in 2015 (when she joined The Rock in a standoff opposite Triple H and Stephanie McMahon), spoke about it during a media teleconference.

“We’ve had discussions, and we’ve talked about a million different things,” Levesque said. “She’s interested. We’re interested. We’ve had back and forth conversations. We’re busy, she’s busy. Getting to the point of being able to sit down and hammer something out has not happened yet, but the interest is clearly there.”
