Former UFC Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier joined Konnan’s Keepin it 100 podcast where he talked about a wide range of topics including what would have to happen for him to join WWE.
Cormier is a big wrestling fan and has expressed his interest in making the jump to the world of pro wrestling whether that be a wrestler, manager or analyst.
Cormier, who is a good friend of Cain Velasquez as they were AKA training partners, stated that he’s had conversations with a lot of people about doing various things with the company.
“I’ve had a lot of conversations with a lot of people about different things with WWE. One was the studio show in LA (WWE Backstage). Another one was maybe trying to figure out a way to be on the commentary table. I’ve got some great relationships with FOX so I don’t necessarily know if it was WWE pushing it or FOX pushing it.”
Cormier added, “I’ve talked to Triple H and Michael Cole, I’ve talked to the people who run the shows down at FOX. I like to say the ship has not sailed. We still have to find something that works and the moment we find something that works, I’m all in.”
Cormier would pitch a storyline where he would turn on Cain that would lead to a one-off match for one night only. He added that after the match, he would go to manage his good friend.
