Speaking at the UFC on ESPN 56 press conference, Lewis was asked about UFC and WWE merging to form TKO.

"We [WWE and Lewis] are actually in talks right now. We've been talking for a few months. I was supposed to go down there in February to check everything out," he said.

Asked what his finishing move would be, Lewis said, "It'd have to be something like Rikishi. You might see it. I like taking down my shorts. You might see something like that."

Lewis previously said he'd be Rikishi 2.0 if he wrestled.

Lewis defeated Marcos Rogério de Lima at UFC 291, starting the fight with a v-trigger and celebrating with crotch chops.
