UFC’s Chase Sherman started a heated debate when he went to social media to criticize professional wrestling by showing a clip of The Young Bucks, Matt and Nick Jackson at a recent ROH event. Since making the post, other high profile athletes have jumped on Twitter to let their voices be heard. Among them, UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier decided to take Sherman’s side in criticizing the event.
“Grown men watch this.”
Daniel Cormier took to Twitter to offer his thoughts.
“@philbaroni this is actually pathetic. This is what people wanna see? Go to a god dang gymnastics competition. Suplex, bodyslam, piledriver do some old school wrestling man. DDT, I remember when the frankensteiner was the most you’d ever see someone flip. I say Boo to this BS”
Former WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes, son of pro wrestling legend Dusty Rhodes, decided to butt heads with the UFC light heavyweight champion over the matter.
“It’s not pathetic. The paying audience enjoyed it. UFC is thriving, and pro-wrestling has been going strong since 1920…besides most of y’all ask hunter for a job when the wheels fall off anyway and most are on the comp list at staples…so lay the fuck off.”
That being said, Cormier was quick to shoot back with a response.
“I do ask for comps, I am a fan, I didn’t say anything about anything but that sequence of the match. Just be very careful bud! I’ve been a fan of urs too but be very careful. Lay off the cuss words it’s not that serious. And I won’t need a job. I’ll be good.”
