There has been a fun feud going on with Daniel Cormier, ESPN’s Ariel Helwani, and WWE Hall of Famer Booker T.
The former UFC Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight Champion recently talked about how he would like to be a commentator in WWE for a few months before stepping into the ring for a match with Roman Reigns. He even threw out a WrestleMania match with Brock Lesnar.
Booker T voiced his issues with Cormier trying to book his own angle with these two stars before he signed with the company. Booker T and Helwani then exchanged some words on social media.
Hey @BookerT5x, my guy DC can do whatever the hell he wants. Do you know who you’re talking about here? Show some respect for the double champ. You better not hope he shows up over there because let me tell you he isn’t showing up alone … sucka. https://t.co/3s4bs5y2Vl

Ariel, you didn’t say that. Tell me you didn’t just say that…… https://t.co/L2GikIdGfn

Finally, Cormier and Helwani spoke about Booker T’s comments, which also included Booker T giving his latest response, during their MMA show.
Helwani took a jab at Booker T for not being relevant for the last decade or so before Cormier stated, “Hey Booker T, you want to be the backup fighter for the main event? The problem is, I love the Harlem Heat, I love Booker T, I love Stevie Ray…When Booker T comes at me man, I don’t know if we’re gonna be okay. I don’t know if we can bounce back from this.”
After Helwani told him that Booker T had sent in a video, Cormier admitted that the problem is he keeps breaking kayfabe because he became a fan again.
At the end of Booker T’s video, he stated “let me give you some advice bruh, let me catch you at Starbucks, I’ll give you the rub. Cormier, give me a call, I’ll be waiting.”
Cormier started laughing and said that he’s on Booker T’s side. He then said that he would go on Booker T’s Hall of Fame podcast.
Hey @BookerT5x, no need to jump me at a coffee shop. I'll call you next time and meet you out front. Easy.
I look forward to your response on your TV show … oh wait. pic.twitter.com/jFxRlteJl9
