CM Punk has joked that Vince McMahon will sign a UFC star to WWE and debut him on Monday night Raw under a mask as the ‘Corona Kid’.
@HenryCejudo going to be on RAW Monday. @VinceMcMahon gonna put him under a hood and call him the Corona Kid. @ufc #UFC249
Henry Cejudo announced his retirement from UFC last night during UFC 249 after retaining his Bantamweight Championship over Dominick Cruz.
He even hinted during his retirement announcement that he wants to join WWE, saying (quote via Fightful):
“I would love to do an appearance, but the stuff they do in WWE, s**t, I would love to beat up on Rey Mysterio. He can bend the knee too. And Kurt Angle.”
Cejudo isn’t the only UFC star to express interesting in WWE lately, with Colby Covington being another name who’s made sure just about everybody knows about his desire to switch.
Would you like to see Cejudo in WWE, or if not are there any MMA stars you think would do well in pro-wrestling?
