Daniel Cormier Set To Be The Special Guest Referee For The Fight Pit Match At WWE Extreme Rules

The feud of Matt Riddle and Seth “Freakin” Rollins has gotten so personal that it was ultimately made official by the WWE that they will be facing each other in a Fight Pit Match at the WWE Extreme Rules Premium Live Event. The Fight Pit Match is already as brutal and as extreme as it can be, but to make the match even more interesting and intense, MMA reporter Ariel Helwani took to his Twitter and noted that former UFC Heavyweight Champion and Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier is going to be the special guest referee.

The former UFC Heavyweight Champion and Light Heavyweight Champion himself then took to Instagram and commented on his role as the special guest referee at WWE Extreme Rules.

The first-ever Fight Pit Match took place on the May 27th, 2020 episode of WWE NXT, where Matt Riddle lost to Timothy Thatcher. Timothy Thatcher would win the second Fight Pit Match as well, when he beat Tommaso Ciampa on the January 20th, 2021 episode of WWE NXT.

WWE Extreme Rules is set to take place on Saturday, October 8th from inside the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
