– Triple H spoke with CBS Sports on Friday about the possibility of Ronda Rousey having a run in WWE. The Game noted that, despite reports that Rousey is interested in a WWE run, he hasn’t had conversations with her specifically about it. Highlights are below:

On Rousey attending the Mae Young Classic: “I don’t know that I ever once looked out at the crowd and saw her without this ear-to-ear grin on her face. She was like a little kid after every break there would be when I would talk to her — like a little kid. What that means? Unsure. What that means down the line? I think she’s unsure.”

On a possible WWE run for Rousey: “I think [Rousey] is in a transition period in her life and is in a great place. I think she’s getting married soon or something. Look, she has got a lot going on, but I’m all about creating opportunities. That’s what the Mae Young Classic is all about — creating opportunities for these women that they never had before. If Ronda Rousey wants that opportunity, I’d be happy to talk to her about it…I think that Ronda has been fascinated with our business for a very long period of time. There are so many similarities but you don’t have some of the competitive drawbacks maybe that come with being that elite level of fighter.”

On Rousey’s WrestleMania 31 appearance: “It’s funny. I remember when we did that stuff with Ronda at WrestleMania and she was talking about the roar of the crowd. It was the most amazing stuff she had felt and heard. She said, ‘I have never allowed myself to even hear it when I fight.’ She can’t. It’s not about the crowd. It’s not about entertainment and whether they are booing me or cheering me. It’s not about how loud it is. It’s about a focused one thing. We do the exact opposite. Our whole thing is entertaining that crowd and getting them to react and doing all those things. It’s fun, and I think that she’s enamored and fascinated with what we do. I know she was there to support her friend Shayna Baszler, who did phenomenal in the tournament and is very skilled. She was there to support her and had a great time.”
