Ever since he burst into the international spotlight, Conor McGregor & WWE rumors have been swirling. It isn’t quite surprising, given that Conor McGregor seems as if he was almost born to be in the WWE. You put McGregor with a microphone in the ring, and the WWE would have their biggest star since The Rock.
While McGregor has mostly dodged the question, considering he’s still in the midst of taking over the MMA game, his agent recently shed some light on what it would take to get McGregor to the WWE. As it usually is with Conor McGregor, it all comes down to money:
According to his agent, Audie Attar, who appeared Tuesday on ESPN’s 5ive Rounds podcast, it’s something McGregor is willing to entertain — as long as the money is right.
“I think it’s all about business, man,” Attar said. “If [WWE] is going to come with an offer, we are willing to entertain it. We are here. Have their people call his people — which is me. We can have a conversation.”
The topic of a McGregor crossover into sports entertainment picked up steam when executive and 14-time WWE world champion Paul “Triple H” Levesque was in attendance at UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden in New York. Levesque gave an interview with a British newspaper in which he said McGregor would be a perfect fit for WWE.
“He could come over, he’s got it all, man,” Levesque told the Daily Telegraph. “He’s got the personality, the skills, the talk. He’s an entertainer, for sure.”
While the move would be great for the WWE, I can’t imagine any of McGregor’s fans wanting him to make the jump. The UFC is real, and the WWE is not, so seeing Conor McGregor actually beat the shit out of people is far more entertaining than seeing him pretending to.
