The 30-year-old is a lifelong WWE fan and has been seen at many shows before, most notably alongside The Rock at WrestleMania 31 where she got physical with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

Despite Ronda Rousey and WWE's attempt to play coy, her joining the company is the worst kept secret in all of wrestling.

Rousey, a Bronze Medalist in Judo at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, wrapped up her career in mixed martial arts after a humiliating loss to Amanda Nunes on December 30, 2016. "We're talking. We're having conversations", added Levesque.

Wrestling fans are stoked about the prospect of MMA star Ronda Rousey stepping into a WWE ring. But there's a lot of things to walk through. Former UFC and Strikeforce Bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey has been rumored to be eventually making the leap on over to the wrestling entertainment world for a good while now.

Although Rousey has a few Hollywood obligations to fulfil this month, a one-off appearance for the Women's Royal Rumble wouldn't be out of the realm. The sports entertainment company will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of "Monday Night Raw" on January 22, with two shows slated to take place at the Manhattan Center and Barclays Center. "But she's a huge fan of what we do and she's incredibly interested in what we do and the opportunities that lie there".

But he revealed the WWE are interested in Rousey and dubbed her a "fascinating person" as the charm offensive continued to get a deal done.

UFC President Dana White was on vacation and unavailable for comment.

Speaking of TMZ, Rousey kept stum with them after the dinner, simply answering 'I really enjoy fine dining, ' when pressed about the rumours.
