Conor McGregor is one of sporting’s biggest personalities. Love him or hate him, he never fails to provoke a reaction and it’s due to his divisive nature that he’s able to make millions from his fights alone. His fans want to witness a master class whilst his rivals are eager to see him fail. His win against Eddie Alvarez last week has only cemented his place as UFC’s most bankable commodity.
With his name having been plastered all over news networks and social media for the past year, it now seems as if Triple H would be interested in getting to perform with the WWE. But under what capacity I hear you cry? Well unfortunately, I do not know the answer to that question – however, when it comes to the WWE, anything is possible.
We’ve already seen Ronda Rousey at Wrestlemania 31 butting heads with Stephanie McMahon and we’ve also witnessed Floyd Mayweather competing at Wrestlemania 24 against the worlds ‘biggest’ athlete, the Big Show to an emphatic victory.
Whether or not McGregor would want to go to the WWE is an entirely different matter as he’s been quite vocal about the world of wrestling stating he would ‘slap the heads off’ the entire roster. This obviously didn’t go down too well with many of the wrestlers however it just goes to show that when McGregor speaks, the world listens.
The Telegraph recently spoke to Triple H about the possibility of McGregor making a crossover appearance with the WWE in which he replied:
“He could come over, he’s got it all, man—he’s got the personality, the skills, the talk. He’s an entertainer, for sure. What does he walk around at? 180 pounds? I have smaller guys now in the WWE. We have 200-pound guys who are stars. You don’t need to be 300 pounds any more.”
He also went onto reference Mayweather’s participation with the WWE:
“[McGregor] could do just as well as Floyd Mayweather when he fought the Big Show. That really worked. Conor could do it, for sure.”
Obviously this would all go down to Dana White as to whether he’d want one of his biggest talents to cross paths with the WWE however stranger things have happened! Although McGregor may have had some fun at WWE’s expense in the past, I’m sure he wouldn’t mind a big healthy pay check for one nights work.
