Earlier this week, WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns appeared on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show for a new interview and during it, he talked about whether he preferred one-on-one matches or triple threat matches.
This was a reference to his next title defense against Edge and Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 37 in a three-way match at WrestleMania 37. This is where he noted that he would smash anybody in any match including Cormier. He played up how it would be a short story for Cormier if he got into the ring.
Cormier, who does his own ESPN show with Helwani, saw the clip and responded by writing, “Watch your mouth @RomanReignsWWE! I’ll dance with the big dog!”
Paul Heyman, who is aligned with Reigns on television, responded to Cormier by writing:
“LMAO! @dc_mma tagged an imposter @WWERomanReigns account, hoping the #UniversalChampion doesn’t see this nonsense. Fight ROMAN REIGNS? #DC would be lucky to be in @WWE as enhancement talent! His biggest moment in @UFC was getting shoved across the Octagon by @BrockLesnar!”
Reigns reacted to that by stating that Cormier, who is a commentator for the UFC, “is acting soft. ”
Cormier replied, “My advisor @arielhelwani is waiting by the phone. It’s time to stop talking and let’s make this real! I’m 42 years old with a bad back and I’m whippin’ you any day of the week. Your move @VinceMcMahon @HHH this my yard, I’m the big dog!”
Cormier has expressed interest in working for WWE and doing a possible match. Up to this point, that hasn’t happened.
That announce table got him acting soft. https://t.co/4QqHi0RRWw
