The former interim champion is also a huge pro wrestling fan and would like to have a mixed tag team match at WWE Wrestlemania 36.
“I think probably the guy that’s dating The Man. What’s his name? Seth Rollins? Yeah, the little cry baby. I would love to go up against him. He thinks he’s so tough, he thinks he’s so hard cause he’s got a girlfriend that’s famous. It’s pretty much making his career cause he’s dating Becky Lynch. So, I’d love to just go shut him up. What better way. You know, we can even do a tag team match, me and Ronda versus Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch. That could be a huge tag team-type match. But let me tell you something right now, no one on that WWE roster’s safe if I come over there,” says Covington on Submission Radio (via Jeremy Thomas of 411 Mania).
Covington has appeared before at Impact Wrestling events and a Wrestle Pro card before Wrestlemania 35, so it seems like a transition to pro wrestling could be in his future.
Another wrestling great in The Rock is presenting to BMF Championship to the winner of the UFC 244 main event, but that is something that doesn’t interest Covington.
“Nah, I could care less. I mean, let him do that, let him hype up these losers that are never gonna sniff anywhere close to the greatness that I’ve sniffed, you know. They’re not getting calls from the President of the United States. They’re not getting texts daily from the first family, you know, they don’t have an open invite to the White House. Oh cool, you got some pro wrestlers? Yeah, I know lots of pro wrestlers. Actually you know, I might have to have Kurt Angle show up and beat The Rock’s ass. I mean, let’s be honest, Kurt Angle won the Olympics with a broken frickin’ neck. The guy’s an intense machine. You know, and Bobby Lashley, my friend over at the WWE, Ronda Rousey. I got so many friends over at WWE. Paul Heyman, you know. I got a lot of friends over there, I could care less about The Rock. He’s all hype, and they probably just had to pay him a ton of money to show up to do that,” says Covington.
UFC 245 takes place on Saturday, December 14 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
