Bellew, who is currently recovering from a broken hand sustained during his victory over David Haye in their heavyweight domestic grudge match in March, singled out 14-time WWE world heavyweight champion Triple H as the man he would like to face.
"Tony would like to slap Triple H's backside," Bellew told Sky Sports News HQ.
"I like the sound of that, or doing a 'Stone Cold' stunner on Triple H, he was a phenomenal wrestler in his day, so I wouldn't mind a little go at that."
