Former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley recently opened up on his experience of WWE Tryout. Many UFC stars have transformed their career into pro wrestling and Woodley also expressed his desires to step foot in a squared circle. He recently spoke about his training and also revealed how he drew praise from multi-time world champion Triple H.
Tyron Woodley is open to pro wrestling switch
During an appearance on The Residency Podcast, “The Chosen One” admitted he was open to a future pro-wrestling venture, and also discussed his experience partaking in a WWE training camp a few years ago.
“Yeah, I did a little WWE training camp. That sh*t hurt my back like a motherf*cker,” said Woodley. “Hey, let them mothers*ckers who think it’s sweet in the WWE go off them tight-ass ropes. Those ropes will burn your f*cking back, neck, and then my legs, I’m not six-foot-two, so to get across the mothers*cker to the perfect time… ‘Oh, I got clotheslined out the blue!’ That sh*t hurt.
“And you getting hit. When you hit the ground, I’m like, ‘Sh*t, I thought there was like, a microphone underneath there to make a lot of noise.’ No, you’re hitting that motherf*cker. Shoutout to the pro-wrestlers,” added Woodley.
He also got to discover a crucial aspect of WWE’s storytelling which is cutting the promo. Selling a matchup is important for storytelling in WWE, but it’s equally as vital in attracting pay-per-view buys for the UFC, which often leads to some heated exchanges. The UFC 272 build-up, for example, saw Colby Covington direct personal insults towards opponent Jorge Masvidal.
Having sent his fair share of trash talk his opponents’ way, Woodley seemingly had little issue with the WWE microphone in his hand, and even drew some praise from legendary figure Paul Levesque, aka Triple H.
“They said, ‘You done? Okay, let’s cut a promo.’ So they all sit down and I’m like, ‘The f*ck is a promo?’ I didn’t wanna say that I didn’t know what the f*ck it is,” said Woodley. “But then it kinda led me to believe that I just needed to talk a little sh*t. Then I did [LAUGHS]. Triple H said, ‘Dawg, he’s ready, I like this mother*cker.’”
We will see if Woodley makes his way to WWE someday.
