WWE is always looking for crossover athletes, but not all of them have what it takes to make it in the pro wrestling world.

While speaking to TMZ Sports, The Miz was asked about becoming a WWE Superstar and crossover athletes coming into the company. He praised Ronda Rousey, but he isn’t too sure Daniel Cormier can do the same thing.

“It’s very difficult, not many people are able to do it, not many people can be as successful as Ronda Rousey was. She came in and really did a tremendous job in just acclimating to our style of professional wrestling. She did a great job and if he can do that, that’s fantastic, but some people just can’t get it.”

When asked if Daniel Cormier has the charisma needed to become a WWE Superstar, he provided an interesting response: “It takes a little more than charisma to be a successful Superstar.”


The A-Lister then provided advice for DC or anyone else who wants to pursue professional wrestling. The best thing you can do is not quit.

“Stick with it, because there’s a lot of reasons that will tear you apart from it. That’s the best advice I’d ever gotten when I was first starting in WWE, not even in WWE, before WWE when I was in independent wrestling. I asked some Superstars what would be the best advice, the best advice I got was stick with it.”

“Because I watched so many people quit, I watched so many people look at it and go, ‘This is too hard on my body, too hard on everything, I don’t like traveling.’ There’s always an excuse, you know? Screw the excuse.”

Daniel Cormier is more likely to become an announcer on WWE television than Superstar. He disclosed in the past that there were very early talks about coming in to work for WWE. We’ll have to see if that happens and if DC and The Miz can get to know each other a little better in the process.
