Daniel Cormier is UFC Hall of Famer. The talented fighter was called in by WWE to officiate the proceedings inside the Fight Pit between Seth Rollins and Matt Riddle at Extreme Rules.

The match was intense, and Cormier kept his cool during trying moments in the contest. There was a brief push between Riddle and Cormier, but it happened in the heat of the moment.

Cormier called the match down the middle and Riddle won the match. While speaking on the ESPN MMA’s DC&RC Show, Cormier admitted that he was really nervous ahead of his WWE appearance and forgot the finish of the match.

“I was in the back and I was nervous, because obviously you know the outcome, I started forgetting the match, I was like oh my goodness.


I forgot the (ending), I was so nervous bro, but once I walked out there bro, it was so fun! The energy of the crowd, is like second to none.”

Matt Riddle also believes Cormier should wrestle match in WWE. With his MMA skills, Cormier should have no problem competing. We will have to wait and see whether the UFC legend will end up wrestling in WWE or not.
