Daniel Cormier Challenges WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns

Last updated

UFC legend and former 2-division Champion Daniel Cormier has challenged ‘The Big Dog’ Roman Reigns to a match. DC responded to comments made by Reigns during an interview with Cormier’s broadcast colleague Ariel Helwani.

‘I’ll smash anybody one-on-one” Roman Reigns stated whilst speaking to Helwani, promoting WrestleMania 37 next week. “Whether it’s Daniel Bryan, Edge one-on-one. DC one-on-one, I’ll smash ’em all one-on-one, it don’t matter.’

‘Get him (Daniel Cormier) from behind the table’ Reigns continued. ‘Get him in the gym, maybe. Maybe he could have a chance, I dunno. It’d be a short story, I’ll tell DC.’

The UFC legend Daniel Cormier then responded to Reigns on Twitter, saying ‘watch your mouth @RomanReignsWWE! I’ll dance with the big dog! @arielhelwani @espnmma @wwe.’

After Reigns retorted to this, saying “that announce table got him acting soft,” Cormier made an ‘official’ challenge to the WWE Universal Champion.

‘My advisor @arielhelwani is waiting by the phone’ Cormier wrote. ‘It’s time to stop talking and let’s make this real! I’m 42 years old with a bad back and I’m whippin’ you any day of the week. Your move @VinceMcMahon@HHH this my yard , I’m the big dog!’

It remains to be seen if WWE will be putting an offer on the table for the former UFC Light Heavyweight/Heavyweight Champion. It’s worth noting that Daniel Cormier is a MASSIVE wrestling fan, so he’d clearly be up for the chance.
