• UFC Champion Wants To Be In The Royal Rumble 2018 Match
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier said that he wants to enter the Men’s Royal Rumble 2018 match.
Below is what Cormier said:
“I wish I could be in the Royal Rumble match next year. I don’t think they will invite me, but fighting against Oezdemir in Boston works for me, timewise. My fight is in January, which opens up WrestleMania for me this New Orleans – not to compete, but to go.”
Speaking of Cormier, below is what he wrote on Twitter about SmackDown Live Star Chad Gable delivering impressive suplexes to Rusev & Aiden English at Clash of Champions 2017 (as seen in the GIF below):
“Wrestling right here. Good job betts! That’s an Olympic level suplex bud!!!”
