Some may write it off as a bit of WWE kayfabe, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if there's actually a bit of ill will brewing between Patrick Cummins and Daniel Cormier. Cummins retelling of a wrestling room breakdown on Cormier's part seem to have touched a nerve in what is almost certainly a very unpleasant week for DC. Anyone who's gotten a good look at Cormier these past few days has been met with the grim visage of death and I wouldn't put it past him to be in no mood to take Cummins promotional smack talk.
All of this is most likely why Cormier hit a boiling point at yesterday's Media Day staredowns when he decided to meet Cummins head on with a not-at-all-playful shove. Check out the video of the event. Their confrontation takes place about 35 seconds in.
