A huge UFC star has confirmed he’s had talks with WWE following rumours the two parties had been interested in working together for quite some time now.
Speaking with Sports Illustrated, Daniel Cormier confirmed he and WWE had been in talks, and said he wants to serve as a commentator for the company.
“We’ve been talking. We’ve spoken to some of the people over there in very, very early conversations. WWE is a company I’ve watched and loved my entire life.
“Put me at the commentary table. Let me call the matches for six months and tell you how great these wrestlers are in the ring. I would love that, and I wouldn’t be faking it. WWE is something I’ve loved my entire life.”
He then decided to fantasy book the start of an issue with Roman Reigns, adding:
“Then, after those six months, what if I’m sitting next to Michael Cole, and Roman comes over and smacks the microphone out of my hand? But I’m an announcer. Will I hit him back? Then you’re asking if this will happen or not. That’s what I want, that slow build, the type of story you want to see, and your heart feels like it’s going to explode while you’re waiting for it. Give me the slow build, let it simmer.”
