Ronda Rousey has refused to be drawn on her future in WWE after being involved in her first storyline.
The former UFC Champion told WWE trio Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch and Bayley she'd be up for a match 'anytime, anywhere' after a taping last week, whetting the appetite of fans around the world.
"I'm just here to support Shayna," Rousey told reporter Cathy Kelly on the red carpet of the Mae Young Classic in Las Vegas when asked about a possible switch to WWE.
"I don't want to be the kind of person that comes to support her friend and then talks about herself all night. It's all about her."
Rousey's former UFC training partner Shayna Bazsler was in the final of the 32-woman tournament after impressing since leaving MMA for pro-wrestling.
She was supported by Rousey and fellow partners Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir throughout, leading to speculation the team known as 'The Four Horsewomen' in UFC will make the move from the octagon to a wrestling ring together.
Rousey has spent time training at WWE's Performance Center in Florida and starred in a cameo at Wrestlemania 31 when she teamed up with The Rock to confront Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
She's been exceptionally secretive about a possible full-time move to sports entertainment, however, despite reports she's been lined up to star at next year's Wrestlemania in New Orleans.
One thing Rousey would admit is she's happy with the increased platform female wrestlers have been given in WWE over the past couple of years.
She said: "It's been great to watch the role of women really evolve over the past few years, it's really encouraging. A lot of progress has been made but, as a lot of industries, I'm excited to be here to watch it happen."
