WWE Extreme Rules is already shaping up to be one of the best Premium Live Events the company will be having in 2022 as not only is the card stacked from top to bottom, but all matches on the show is set to have a stipulation. One of the most highly-anticipated matchups in the upcoming event and maybe in recent memory is the Fight Pit Match between Seth “Freakin” Rollins and Matt Riddle due to the heated rivalry between the two top WWE Superstars and the nature of the match.
The match has become even more exciting and intense with the addition of a special guest referee, who as first revealed by MMA journalist Ariel Helwani on his Twitter is none other than UFC legend Daniel Cormier. The former UFC Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight Champion himself then took to his Instagram and commented on his role as the special guest referee at WWE Extreme Rules.
Cormier is a long-time massive WWE fan and there have been rumors in recent years about him wrestling for the promotion or working on the commentary team. Cormier’s role as a special guest referee at the upcoming WWE Extreme Rules Event will be the first time he will be involved in the WWE and this could lead to something else for him down the line.
