There’s no denying that Conor McGregor knows how to get people talking, and over the past few years a lot of people have been talking about Conor McGregor possibly working with WWE. Company officials Triple H and Stephanie McMahon have been pretty open about the fact that they would like to see Conor make an appearance on WWE programming someday, and now it seems that it could happen next year.
The Sun is reporting that Conor McGregor is close to signing a deal with WWE that would see him work a match at WrestleMania.
“Conor is a huge wrestling fan,” a source told SunSport. “His entire persona on stage he has developed from watching performers like Ric Flair and The Rock. These are the top dogs at self-promotion and trash talk. He watched these guys when he was younger. This is something he’s always wanted to do. The WWE guys have asked him to do shows before with them but the timing was never really right. But this time it looks like a deal is going to be locked into place. He has some things to tie up in the UFC before he can do anything else but this is a big money deal so I can’t see him turning it down.”
When asked about Conor McGregor possibly working with WWE, Stephanie McMahon recently said that she thinks he would be a perfect fit.
“I think Conor would be a perfect fit with WWE. He certainly has the personality and the athletic ability, the appeal. He speaks his mind, he’s very genuine and authentic and he has a hell of a Vince McMahon swagger.”
