Great news for Daniel Cormier … the UFC star doesn’t have to worry about career options after he retires from MMA, because the WWE sounds VERY interested!
Triple H — one of the top execs at WWE — tells TMZ Sports he LOVES everything about D.C. … and thinks he would EASILY cross over into pro wrestling.
In fact, HHH says the two have already talked about a possible gig … but ONLY if it won’t conflict with his UFC deal.
“I love Daniel. We’ve obviously talked a lot in the past. We’ve had conversations about him doing stuff with us in the past whether that’s in-ring or whether that’s commentary or doing different things.”
“I think we’d love to do something with him if the time is right — obviously, respectful to UFC and to Dana and everything else.”
“We’d love to chat with him and we have an open relationship as far as communication so I’m sure shortly we will when he figures out what he wants to do.”
41-year-old Cormier has repeatedly said he has 1 fight left in him in the UFC and then he’ll retire — but so far, no fight date has been set. He’s hoping to get his rematch with Stipe Miocic sometime this year.
There’s more … Triple H also talks about Conor McGregor possibly joining the McMahon family business somewhere down the line.
“I think that Conor McGregor versus Vince McMahon with that Billion Dollar Walk on the line?! I mean, I think that’s a match made in heaven!”
And, don’t forget about Rob Gronkowski — the reigning WWE 24/7 champ.
Will he be able to defend his belt now that he’s back in the NFL?
“It’s on the line 24/7,” Triple H says … “You might end up seeing him score a touchdown, spike the ball, get rolled up and drop the title … who knows?!”
Triple H even kicks around the idea of Tom Brady taking the title from Gronk!!
“I mean, geez. He throws the bomb, Gronk catches it, scores a touchdown, spikes it — Brady rolls up to high five him, shoots behind, gets the roll-up! 1, 2, 3! New 24/7 champion!
“On the next play, Gronk goes to cut behind him, and instead of the play starting, he just rolls him up and takes it back! It writes itself!”
