As previously reported, UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier made some waves in the wrestling world after trashing a segment in a recent Ring of Honor match, which featured the Young Bucks and Hangman Page defending their ROH six-man titles. Cormier called the spot “pathetic” before issuing several other tweets complaining about today’s modern “high spot” style of wrestling.
Standing up for his Bullet Club brothers, the “American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes was quick to chime in, calling out the UFC mega star and going straight for the jugular.
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. https://t.co/oqKto3a4TK

WWE Superstars Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson, who have had to deal with the Young Bucks’ popular “F— The Revival” catchphrase for more than a year, wasted very little time backing the corner of Cormier.
Hey @dc_mma , let me know where to send your The Revival shirt. #FTR

What a great guy @dc_mma is. Has a keen eye for talent in this business. I’m sure he has a future here when he’s ready. https://t.co/NsY5hJFK2n
