• Update On Daniel Cormier’s WWE Status After Tonight’s Extreme Rules
Former UFC 2-Division (Light-Heavyweight & Heavyweight) Champion Daniel Cormier will make his 1st ever appearance in WWE tonight.
The UFC Hall Of Famer will act as the Special Guest Referee for the Fight Pit Match between Seth Rollins & Matt Riddle at the Extreme Rules 2022 premium live event.
There are rumors going on that WWE will use Cormier at next month’s Crown Jewel 2022 premium live event as well, since they like to use big non-WWE names for their Saudi Arabia shows.
Since Brock Lesnar also works Saudi Arabia shows, speculation began about a Lesnar vs. Cormier match at Crown Jewel (which they teased in the UFC in 2018), especially since WWE already did a similar match before at Crown Jewel 2019 – Brock Lesnar vs. Cain Velasquez.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Cormier only signed a deal to appear at tonight’s show.
As of this writing, there are no plans for an angle being done tonight to set up his debut match or next appearance in WWE.
