Now that he has officially hung up his shorts in MMA, Daniel Cormier could well be on his way to WWE.
Cormier to WWE rumours date all the way back to before WWE joined forces with FOX and it was reported that he had received an offer to be a part of their WWE Backstage show. Cormier chose to stay active inside the octagon insgead, until his big UFC 252 loss to Stipe Miocic.
Now, Cormier is back in talks with WWE.
“We’ve been talking,”
Cormier told Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated.
“We’ve spoken to some of the people over there in very, very early conversations. WWE is a company I’ve watched and loved my entire life.”
Cormier also has a role in mind and even a potential storyline picked out for himself as well.
“Put me at the commentary table. Let me call the matches for six months and tell you how great these wrestlers are in the ring. I would love that, and I wouldn’t be faking it. WWE is something I’ve loved my entire life. Then, after those six months, what if I’m sitting next to Michael Cole, and Roman comes over and smacks the microphone out of my hand? But I’m an announcer. Will I hit him back? Then you’re asking if this will happen or not. That’s what I want, that slow build, the type of story you want to see, and your heart feels like it’s going to explode while you’re waiting for it. Give me the slow build, let it simmer,“
Cormier noted during the interview that he hasn’t really watched much AEW, but he is happy that the company is doing well.
WWE signed Cormier’s good friend and teammate Cain Velasquez back in October 2019, but he only wrestled in one televised match for the company, facing Brock Lesnar at WWE Crown Jewel, ultimately losing in quick fashion.
