The Miz warns Daniel Cormier how tough WWE switch is and 'wouldn't be surprised' if UFC legend can't hack it

WWE star The Miz 'would not be surprised’ if UFC legend Daniel Cormier could not hack it in wrestling.

The 41-year-old former UFC heavyweight champion retired from the octagon following his loss in the trilogy fight with Stipe Miocic this summer.

DC has long-been linked with a switch to WWE and revealed talks have already taken place between him and Vince McMahon’s company.

However, Monday Night Raw performer and ex-WWE title holder Miz believes it would be very difficult for Cormier to make the transition from cage to squared-circle.

He told TMZ: “Not many people are able to do it.

“Not many people can be as successful as Ronda Rousey was, which she came in and really did a tremendous job just acclimating to our style of professional wrestling.”

Rousey enjoyed great success following her arrival in WWE in January 2018.

Former UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez is another to have recently entered the world of wrestling, following in the footsteps of Brock Lesnar.

But Velasquez left WWE earlier this year after just one major match, where he was demolished quickly by Lesnar.

Miz believes that DC could be a success in WWE, but he reiterated how the job would be much harder. 

He added: “Honestly, it’s one of the hardest jobs I’ve ever seen in entertainment because it’s life.

“It’s in your face, it’s athleticism, it’s entertainment.”
