WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and his "special counsel," Paul Heyman, called out former UFC champion and current color commentator Daniel Cormier on Twitter on Friday.
Cormier then fired back:
The back-and-forth started after Reigns spoke with ESPN's Ariel Helwani, who asked the champion whether he preferred one-on-one or Triple Threat matches (18-minute mark).
“I like one-on-one to be honest. I’ll smash anybody one-on-one, whether it’s Daniel Bryan one-on-one, Edge one-on-one, D.C. [Cormier]. I’ll smash ‘em all one-on-one, it don’t matter to me. Get him from behind the table, get him back in the gym, maybe, maybe he could have a chance, I don't know. It'd be a short story."
Reigns is facing Edge and Daniel Bryan in a Triple Threat match to headline WrestleMania 37 at Raymond James Stadium.
We'll see if a Reigns-Cormier WWE match happens sometime down the line, but for now, Reigns has his sights set on defending his belt April 11 against Daniel Bryan and Edge.
