You never know how one thing can change another in time and there’s always the possibility that you might never expect how different things could have been if things would have been different. Brock Lesnar and Daniel Cormier are 2 guys who seem destined to fight in the UFC at this point. But in reality, WWE wants them both and could have actually had them wrestle each other already — if things would have been different.
At this point in his career, WWE has a great interest in Daniel Cormier coming in for an announce team position. But DC wants to fight Lesnar and as Dave Meltzer explained on Wrestling Observer Radio, this situation could have been much different if things would have played out to work with Cormier’s initial career goals.

“It’s almost like, okay so Brock loses to Cormier who’s retiring anyway and Cormier again — as far as I know there’s not deal with WWE but they want him and Fox wants him so okay, so the guy who beats Lesnar is going to come in as your announcer so that’s not the worst thing either.”
“So it’s not like it’s not like — in another era we’d go, ‘Oh my god Vince is losing so much,’ 2 years ago I would have said that exact same thing.”
“They could do it at WrestleMania match because Cormier I think would be open to do one match you know because he’s a big fan.”
“What a lot of people don’t know is that in 2004, before MMA was big Cormier, his goal was to wrestle in the Olympics and go to WWE at that point but because he took 4th in the Olympics so his mentality was, ‘I didn’t medal,’ so he stayed until 2008 and by the time 2008 comes along and he ends up on the Olympic team and his kidneys shut down while he was cutting weight so he didn’t compete in the 2008 Olympics so when that’s over by then MMA was big so he went into MMA because the world had changed and everything like that.”

Maybe if the cards would have been dealt a little bit different, we would have already seen a couple WWE matches between Lesnar and Cormier. But at this point, we’ll be lucky to see them fight once. Whether it takes place in the Octagon or the squared circle — or both it looks like only time will tell but things could get very interesting in this situation.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
