Nate Diaz teases move to WWE in cryptic post with Triple H

UFC legend Nate Diaz teased a move to the world of WWE in a post with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

The MMA star took to Instagram to share a photo of himself with new WWE head of creative and vice president of talent relations Triple H and co-CEO Stephanie McMahon. 

He captioned the post: “We’ll see what’s bout to happen next.”


The 37-year-old’s contract with the MMA promotion came to an end at UFC 279 after defeating Tony Ferguson by submission with a guillotine choke.

It signalled the end of a 15-year run with the UFC that began with his debut on The Ultimate Fighter back in 2007.

Throughout his tenure, at the promotion, he managed to raise his stock with exciting fights and hard-hitting charisma.

Although his record of 21-13 doesn’t scream MMA star, his feuds with the likes of Conor McGregor, Anthony Pettis, Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone and Ferguson will go down in MMA folklore.

Fellow fighter Henry Cejudo had hinted that Diaz was planning on a stint in professional wrestling last month. 

He told MMA reporter, as per Sportskeeda: “We just saw Nate Diaz too. I saw him in the restroom. He was high as a kite and so was I. And we looked at each other, he's hilarious. 

“Anyway, he's looking to dabble into WWE to make money. 

“We gotta use the brand that the UFC has given you and all these other platforms and continue to make money as an entrepreneur.”

Adding: “I think he's an easy sell too. Let him be him, you know and just know that it's not real.”

WWE has had great success with MMA stars in recent years, cashing in on the crossover appeal they have gained from the UFC.

Meanwhile, Brock Lesnar only served to raise his stock after he left professional wrestling to pursue an MMA career, becoming UFC heavyweight champion, and later returning to wrestling.

Most recently, WWE looked to the services of UFC legend and current commentator Daniel Cormier to serve as the special guest referee for a Fight Pit match between Seth Rollins and Matt Riddle over the weekend. 

Considering his bad-ass presence and straight-shooting personality, you’d expect Diaz to be a huge success in the company.
