• Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Might Appear In WWE Soon
Former UFC Heavyweight & Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier retired from the sport of MMA in 2020.
He now works as a Commentator in UFC and was inducted into the UFC Hall Of Fame recently.
It looks like Cormier could be working with WWE soon.
During a recent installment of Twitter Spaces with Monster Energy, Cormier said he’s in touch with a lot of people in WWE and they want him to do something on NXT 2.0.
Cormier noted that he wants to make this NXT appearance, but isn’t getting the time to do it.
Below is what he said:
“I actually talk to them quite a bit. I’m friends with a lot of people that are in that company. I speak to Triple H. I’ve got some friends that are competing.
My brothers, not my actual brother, one of my friends, Jacob Kasper (Julius Creed), he’s part of the Creed Brothers.
They are in the WWE and the NXT (Tag Team) Champions, they are the smaller league champions.
I’ve been asked a couple of times to do stuff with them for the promotion, but I haven’t been able to make it work. It’s something I want to do.”
For those who don’t remember, Cormier was confronted by Brock Lesnar in 2018, after Cormier won the Heavyweight Title. However, their fight never took place.
