daniel cormier wwe audition tryout commentary video interview

Wrestling fans could be seeing UFC fighter Daniel Cormier on WWE programming sometime in the near future, just not in the ring like you’d expect.

At a UFC media day on Friday, the double champion told reporters he was forced to push back his upcoming tryout for WWE when his last-minute main event at UFC 230 was finalized.

“I’ve been talking to the WWE because they wanted me to go in and do an audition as a member of the commentary team,” said Cormier, grinning. “After the fight, I’ll go down to Orlando and do my tryout.”

“I want to freak out next to the [table] with Vince in my ear, going, ‘Say this, you assh*le!'”

In the meantime, Cormier will be preparing to defend his UFC Heavyweight Championship against Derrick Lewis at Madison Square Garden on November 3rd.
