A source told The Sun, “WWE has made no secret of its desire to do something with Conor McGregor and there were talks between the two parties about this year”. “Because he’s taking time off from the UFC, there was a talk about doing something at this year’s Wrestlemania in April, but it wasn’t to be despite a hefty offer.”
”The Game” Triple H admitted on public record that he would be interested in having McGregor make some WWE appearances when he attended UFC 205 last November at The Garden.
“He [McGregor] could come over, he’s got it all, man – he’s got the personality, the skills, the talk. He’s an entertainer, for sure,” HHH told The Telegraph. “What does he walk around at? 180lbs? I have smaller guys now in the WWE. We have 200lb guys who are stars. You don’t need to be 300lbs any more.”
“He could do just as well as Floyd Mayweather when he fought the Big Show. That really worked. Conor could do it for sure.”
Conor McGregor pushed the buttons of many professional wrestlers when he ripped the business in August 2016 while promoting UFC 202, where he emerged victorious over Nate Diaz in the marquee bout of the night.
He said that some WWE guys are not right in the head, and that the ”new era stars” are “dweebs.” He added that the old school guys – like ”The Nature Boy” Ric Flair – are legends and called the McMahons “Dons.”

“The rest are dweebs,” McGregor said. “What’s the main guy? John Cena. He’s 40, he’s 40 years of age. He’s walking around in a illuminous orange t-shirt and a headband talking about [how] no one can see him. We can see him right there, he’s a big fat 40 year old failed Mr. Olympia motherf–ker! They’re dweebs, those guys!”
