Cormier To The WWE?

If things don’t pan out for Daniel Cormier, he always has a career in professional wrestling.

Cormier is expected to face Stipe Miocic for the heavyweight title later this year in a trilogy that is expected to be the final fight of his professional career. In the meantime, “DC” has recurring gigs as a commentator as well as an analyst for the UFC and that looks like it will only continue even after he officially retires from competition.

However, it’s no secret that Cormier is a professional wrestling fan. He’s already had discussions in the past about being involved with the WWE in some form. And former wrestler and current WWE executive Triple H would love to be able to do something with Cormier in the future.

“I love Daniel. We’ve obviously talked a lot in the past,” Triple H told TMZ. “We’ve had conversations about him doing stuff with us in the past whether that’s in-ring or whether that’s commentary or doing different things. … I think we’d love to do something with him if the time is right — obviously, respectful to UFC and to Dana and everything else.

“We’d love to chat with him and we have an open relationship as far as communication so I’m sure shortly we will when he figures out what he wants to do.”

Cormier turned 41 earlier this year so a potential in-ring future with the WWE seems unlikely even if it’s a part-time gig. However, a one-off fight could work, especially if it’s to settle things with Brock Lesnar.

In reality, commentary seems to be the more realistic option. But given Cormier’s popularity as a UFC commentator, the WWE will have a hard task if they want to recruit the former two-weight champion.

Do you think Cormier will end up working for the WWE in the future?

With the eye of the mixed martial arts (MMA) world on the chaos of UFC 223, former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey made her pro-wrestling debut at tonight’s (Sun. April 8, 2018) WrestleMania XXXIV from New Orleans, Louisiana.

Teaming up with fellow former Olympic medalist Kurt Angle, Rousey took on WWE executives Stephanie McMahon and her husband, Paul “Triple H” Levesque in a mixed tag-team match.

It was one of more awaited WWE debuts for some time, and Rousey delivered on the hype in a big way.

First, she got the crowd going wild with her walkout in honor of former WWE champion “Rowdy” Roddy Piper:

That lead to a so-called ‘surreal’ face-off between the four competitors in the center of the squared circle:

And after some initial offense from McMahon and Levesque, Rousey finally got her chance to rush in on the action, and he wasted no time doing so against McMahon:

“Rowdy” was then able to get McMahon in a compromising position for her trademark armbar:

Then, Rousey showed some scripted boxing skills, the exact area of her once-feared MMA game that unfortunately lead to her downfall, by nailing Triple H with a nonstop torrent of rapid punches:

She showed some newly-acquired pro-wrestling skills as well, flowing well and slamming McMahon like a natural:

Finally, Rousey got McMahon in a brutal armbar for the finish, leading to a monstrous debut victory alongside Angle and a round of celebration with the fans:

Former UFC champion Ronda Rousey is now officially a part of the WWE’s roster and was baptized in classic professional wrestling fashion after Stephanie McMahon slammed her through a table on Monday.

But that wasn’t even the worst part of her appearance on RAW, as McMahon did the unthinkable by bringing up Rousey’s devastating knockout losses that led her to retire from the sport altogether. Rousey is notoriously prickly when it comes to discussing those losses in interviews, but that didn’t stop Vince McMahon’s daughter from “going there” – and didn’t stop Rousey from letting her for money.

Watch the exchange for yourself:

McMahon insisted Rousey’s first loss in pro-wrestling would come in her very first match, poking fun at how the ‘world knows she handles losses’:

“Ronda, just remember that you chose this path. This is all on you. You are going to lose at WrestleMania. In the record books, your very first match in WWE is going to be a loss to me.

“And we all know — The world knows how you handle losses.”

Rousey will make her official WWE debut at Wrestlemania 34 on Sunday in a tag team match with partner and fellow Olympic medalist Kurt Angle against Stephanie McMahon and her real-life husband, Paul “Triple H” Levesque.

Triple H Invites Floyd Mayweather, Conor McGregor to Appear on WWE Raw

Ahead of their highly anticipated Aug. 26 fight, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor received invitations to appear on WWE Raw from Superstar Triple H on Tuesday.

In an interview with Sky Sports (h/t Luke Brown of the Independent), The Game praised both competitors and expressed his belief that they could benefit from showing up on Raw:

“One thing Floyd Mayweather is, is entertaining. One thing Conor McGregor is, is entertaining, and it’s funny that you say it’s sports entertainment. I’d invite both guys to showcase what they do on Monday Night Raw because there is no bigger platform that they can have to show the world, and tell the world, who they are and why they’re the man.”

Mayweather has a significant advantage entering the fight since he is a perfect 49-0 as a boxer, while McGregor has never had a professional boxing match, but the Cerebral Assassin fully understands the appeal of the showdown:

“All sports is entertainment, the news is entertainment today, it’s just the way of the world. This is what people do with their time. It’s no different. I think there is an interest level there. Can a world-class boxer, probably the best ever, can he stand in the ring with an MMA guy, and can that MMA guy bring his striking skills up to the level of someone, like say, a Floyd Mayweather? The one thing it will be, beyond a shadow of a doubt, is entertaining.”

While Mayweather and McGregor are both known for their athletic excellence in their respective sports, they reached prominence due in large part to their ability to talk trash and promote themselves.

That makes them ideal fits for the world of professional wrestling.

McGregor ruffled some feathers last year when he spoke ill of WWE and its performers when asked on a conference call if he would ever consider signing with the company:

“I have thought about [WWE]. For the most part, I think these guys are p—ies, to be honest. They’re messed-up p—ies if you ask me. Fair play to Brock [Lesnar]; he got in and fought, but at the end of the day, he was juiced up to the f–king eyeballs. How can I respect that?”

As for Mayweather, he already has experience with WWE, as he faced and defeated Big Show in 2008 at WrestleMania 24 in Orlando, Florida.

Raw could be an ideal venue for a face-to-face altercation between Mayweather and McGregor, while WWE’s flagship show would certainly receive a massive ratings boost under those circumstances.
