According to TMZ, Ronda Rousey is not as close to finalizing a deal with WWE as USA Today claimed last week and sources from all sides of the deal have said that contract talks have not gotten off the ground yet.
One source told TMZ, “[Ronda’s team] hasn’t begun any negotiations with the WWE.”
It’s also worth noting that Triple H downplayed the rumors during an interview with CBSSports.
“Everybody is very busy and I know that from Ronda’s side and her team, they are looking for an opportunity,” he said. “I have made it very clear that an opportunity exists and it’s just a matter of us getting together and having conversations. I wish I had something more to tell you than that but we are just kind of talking and feeling where it goes and she is making movies and doing other things. But it’s exciting and there are a lot of interest on both sides so let’s see where it goes.”
