Daniel Cormier to guest referee Fight Pit match at WWE Extreme Rules


Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier will guest referee the Fight Pit match between Matt Riddle and Seth Rollins at Extreme Rules.

On Saturday evening, Ariel Helwani broke the news on Twitter that Cormier would be the guest referee at Extreme Rules, which takes place on October 8. Helwani also released a statement from Cormier.

“The Rollins-Riddle feud has gotten very intense and personal,” the statement reads. “There’s only one person qualified enough to oversee this brutal match at [Extreme] Rules and it’s me. I’ll see you guys in Philly next Saturday.”

WWE later commented on Twitter that more information would be revealed on Raw Monday.

A face-to-face between Rollins and Riddle is already scheduled for this Monday’s Raw. WWE in storyline has put in a no contact clause, meaning that neither can put their hands on one another or else they will be removed from the match at Extreme Rules.

Here is the lineup for this Monday’s Raw:

  • Contract signing for Bianca Belair and Bayley's Raw Women's Championship ladder match at Extreme Rules
  • Matt Riddle and Seth Rollins go face-to-face
  • Rey Mysterio & AJ Styles vs. The Judgment Day
