Matt Riddle Talks Daniel Cormier’s Performance At WWE Extreme Rules

Top WWE Monday Night RAW Superstar Matt Riddle recently appeared on the DC & RC podcast to talk about a number of topics such as UFC Hall of Famer Daniel Cormier’s performance at this past Saturday’s WWE Extreme Rules Event and how he Cormier should step into the squared circle.

Matt Riddle said:

“I think everybody performed well. I personally think DC did a great job reffing, but I think he’s bigger and stronger and better than just reffing. I think DC should lace up some boots and step into the squared circle.”

Matt Riddle also talked about the difference between the energy in professional wrestling and MMA.

Matt Riddle said:

“I’d say this. The energy is a little different because I’d say in professional wrestling, I’m kinda like the composer. I am like the artist that’s painting. I know what I’m expecting the crowd to do when I do it and stuff like that. I know when I’m gonna get those reactions or at least I’m planning on those reactions if I do my job right. While I was in mixed martial arts, you never know what’s gonna happen, but even in my career, I was always going for those fight of the night, those epic moments, those Rocky Balboa slugfests, both guys bleeding and the crowd roaring. They’re different, of course, but those are the similarities. I’m trying to get that crowd up. I’m trying to get them to roar. I’m trying to feel that energy to push me to go harder and stronger.”
