WWE Reportedly Wants Appearance from Conor McGregor
WWE officials reportedly want an appearance from current UFC Featherweight and Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor.
It was noted on last night’s Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE “very much” wants Conor, presumably for a RAW appearance.
As noted, Triple H was in attendance for UFC 205 on Saturday night to see McGregor become the first-ever simultaneous two-division champion in UFC history by defeating Eddie Alvarez for the Lightweight Title.
McGregor made pro wrestling headlines earlier this year when he took a shot at several wrestlers while doing a UFC 202 Q&A. Below are some of his quotes:
“What’s the main guy? John Cena. He’s 40. He’s 40 years of age. He’s walking around in a luminous orange t-shirt and a headband talking about nobody can see him. We can see him right there. He’s a big fat, 40-year-old failed Mr. Olympia mother f*cker.”
“I don’t know what to say to Ric Flair. This ain’t no gimmick. This is the real sh*t. I’ve gotta get in and fight a man for real. With no script, with no nothing. He was talking about bringing some other wrestler guys out to challenge me. Come bring it, then. This is the real shit over here. You know want to come over, we can fight no problem. A few of them are talking about the street and all. If they want to do that, come at me and see what happens.”
“Like I said, no disrespect to the dons of the game, the McMahons. [WWE CEO Vince McMahon] is a f*cking legend. They wrote Vinny off a few years ago when he dropped from the billions and then he rose back up and now he’s back in the billionaire club. What he’s been able to do with that bunch of dweebs he has over there at the moment has been phenomenal and I respect him for that. And then of course the OGs of the game, The Rock, Stone Cold, they’re cool mother f*ckers. Even Ric Flair is a cool mother f*cker.”
“I’m just speaking the truth. That new age of those guys are absolute dweebs. They just seem messed up in the head. I don’t know what it is. When I listen to them talk, when I listen to them carry themselves, they just don”t seem right in the head. That might have been a bit rudeness for me to say, but again: It ain’t trash talk, it’s truth talk.”
“I’ve got them all wrapped up on my little finger. The boxing game, the MMA game. Now I’ve got those wrestling dweebs in here as well. I’ve got the whole sh*t locked up.”
