UFC Star Colby Covington Bashes AEW, Says He Is Open To A WWE Run

UFC Star Colby Covington, coming off a loss to Kamaru Usman at UFC 268, recently talked about potentially making a professional wrestling run at some point in his career.

Former interim UFC Welterweight Champion uses Kurt Angle’s ‘You Suck’ entrance music when making his way to the octagon which prompted the media to ask him if he’d ever put any thought into joining the pro wrestling world.

Covington answered by saying, “I might go to WWE one day but you’ll never see me in a second-tier promotion like AEW.”

Interestingly enough, Covington’s former MMA camp, American Top Team, led by owner Dan Lambert, have been regular characters on AEW in recent months and involved in numerous high-profile storylines.
