Ahead of Extreme Rules, UFC Hall of Famer Daniel Cormier appeared via video on last night's Raw.
Cormier will be the special guest referee for Matt Riddle and Seth Rollins' Fight Pit match at Extreme Rules. Last night, Cormier interrupted a face-to-face segment with Riddle and Rollins so that he could lay down the law before they enter the Fight Pit on Saturday.
Cormier said he respects Riddle and has always admired Rollins, but he's fed up with their behavior in recent months. Cormier said a match like the Fight Pit needs a stern third man as referee, so WWE called him to make sure Riddle and Rollins put an end to their rivalry at Extreme Rules.
Cormier told Riddle and Rollins that it's time to stop yapping, train hard and train smart, and he'll see them both on Saturday.
Though he's facing Riddle at Extreme Rules, Rollins also has his eyes on the United States Championship. After Rollins ambushed Bobby Lashley last night, it was announced that Lashley will defend his US title against Rollins on Raw's season premiere episode next Monday.
Also on last nights' Raw, Bayley and Damage CTRL stood tall heading into Extreme Rules, AJ Styles & Rey Mysterio took on The Judgment Day, and more.
