WWE Looking To Sign Daniel Cormier Following UFC Retirement

Former UFC World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier fought his retirement fight over the weekend in a rubber match against current champion Stipe Miocic. Although the fight was very close, Cormier lost by decision.

In recent months, Triple H has been very vocal about his desire to see Cormier transition to a WWE career after his UFC career ends. Cormier is a huge wrestling fan and has developed a close friendship with Triple H over the years.

Shortly after losing the fight, one of the first calls Cormier received was from Triple H, who is still hopeful of getting Cormier into a WWE ring at some point.

One idea was to get Cormier involved as soon as SummerSlam, with a surprise appearance to shoot an angle that would lead to a match at Survivor Series. Cormier suffered a torn cornea during Saturday night’s UFC fight after being poked in the eye and complained after the fight about being blind in one eye after suffering the injury, so any future WWE plans may have to be put on hold while he recovers.
