Great news for Daniel Cormier ... the UFC star doesn't have to worry about career options after he retires from MMA, because the WWE sounds VERY interested!
Triple H -- one of the top execs at WWE -- tells TMZ Sports he LOVES everything about D.C. ... and thinks he would EASILY cross over into pro wrestling.
In fact, HHH says the two have already talked about a possible gig ... but ONLY if it won't conflict with his UFC deal.
"I love Daniel. We've obviously talked a lot in the past. We've had conversations about him doing stuff with us in the past whether that's in-ring or whether that's commentary or doing different things."
"I think we'd love to do something with him if the time is right -- obviously, respectful to UFC and to Dana and everything else."
"We'd love to chat with him and we have an open relationship as far as communication so I'm sure shortly we will when he figures out what he wants to do."
41-year-old Cormier has repeatedly said he has 1 fight left in him in the UFC and then he'll retire -- but so far, no fight date has been set. He's hoping to get his rematch with Stipe Miocic sometime this year.
There's more ... Triple H also talks about Conor McGregorpossibly joining the McMahon family business somewhere down the line.
"I think that Conor McGregor versus Vince McMahonwith that Billion Dollar Walk on the line?! I mean, I think that's a match made in heaven!"
And, don't forget about Rob Gronkowski -- the reigning WWE 24/7 champ.
