UFC legend Ronda Rousey and WWE executive Paul “Triple H” Levesque were photographed together on Tuesday at the Republique restaurant in Los Angeles, California. Rousey’s agent was also present at the dinner, according to TMZ.com.
Powell’s POV: There continues to be speculation that Rousey and WWE officials are working on a deal for her to enter the ring. TMZ questioned why Triple H would be in Los Angeles when Smackdown was taking place in Birmingham, Alabama on Tuesday. The answer? Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, and other WWE talent were in Los Angeles on Tuesday doing promotion for the Raw 25th Anniversary special, as you can see below. By the way, that five-hour listing in the tweet regarding Raw 25 is interesting. For what it’s worth, advertising for the show lists the usual start time on USA Network, though it’s obviously possible the company does more on WWE Network.

Cameos and matches are still coming together, but the 5 hour event promises to be one for the history books #TCA18 (Photo by Frederick M.
