Daniel Cormier Plans To ‘Get In Shape’ Before Making WWE Return WWE

UFC Hall of Famer Daniel Cormier has commented on the possibility of a WWE run following Extreme Rules.

At the October 8 premium live event, Cormier served as special guest referee for the Fight Pit bout between Seth Rollins and Matt Riddle.

Speaking on ESPN’s DC & RC, Cormier noted that he wants to lose weight before he considers another WWE appearance.

Cormier said:

“Let me tell you something, so I came home and my partner at my barbershops, he was at my house and he was like, ‘Damn, you look a lot bigger on TV. I was like, TV adds a few pounds — and the stripes didn’t help. But that visual is why I’m going to lose weight. That visual is why your boy’s going to lose weight.

“So they were talking to me about doing future things in the WWE and I go, ‘I’ll do things, but I’ve got to get in shape first.’ Like, give your boy some time to get some of this baggage off, this luggage. Let me get rid of some of the checked baggage and then maybe do a couple carry-ons, and then now I’m able to go and do some things in the ring. Let me have a couple carry-ons on the side and not the entire huge suitcase.”

Cormier previously noted that there were pitches for him to work with the Creed Brothers on NXT. The UFC Heavyweight Champion has predicted that Julius Creed will one day become WWE Champion.
