Good news wrestling fans ... Ronda Rousey WILL return to the WWE -- it's just a matter of time.
That's according to WWE honcho Triple H, who says the superstar just has a lot going on right now.
Ronda hasn't been inside the squared circle since WrestleMania back in April -- since then, she's been shooting TV shows and taking time to begin family planning.
Some people are worried we've seen the last of Ronda as a wrestler -- but The Cerebral Assassin says, "She'll be back at some point. She's just getting a lot done."
There's more ... Triple H hit on a bunch of topics while out in NYC.
-- Will 50-year-old Triple H get back in the ring and wrestle again?
"It all depends. Hopefully not. I'm too busy right now to try to. It's a lot of work to get in the ring. Still training all the time, but a lot of work."
-- Is WWE targeting boxing champ Tyson Fury for a full-time contract?
"I'm sure he's got a lot left to do in the boxing world. He's got Deontay Wilder coming up at the beginning of the year ... but never say never. He's custom-made for what we do, right??"
One issue with Tyson Fury ... after this clip was shot, Fury reportedly injured his ankle in a WWE training session. Scripted injury? Maybe. But, maybe not!
Triple H was also asked about the possibility of "NXT Japan" ... and the WWE honcho definitely didn't say no.
