– According to SunSport, UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor is in talks with WWE officials and Vince McMahon for an appearance at next year’s Show of Shows, WrestleMania 34. WWE previously wanted McGregor to appear at WrestleMania 33 this year, but the deal wasn’t reached.
Below is what SunSport posted:
“Conor is a huge wrestling fan. 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.”
Here’s what Stephanie McMahon recently said about McGregor possibly joining WWE in the future: “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.”
Speaking of McGregor, he took a shot at the current WWE roster last year while promoting his UFC 202 fight against Nate Diaz. Below is what he said about John Cena and the rest of the current locker room:
“The rest are dweebs. 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*****! They’re dweebs, those guys!
Like I said, no disrespect to the Dons of the game. I mean Vinny Mac’s a f***ing legend. They wrote Vinny Mac a couple of years ago, then he rose back up and he’s back in the billionaire’s 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 old G’s of the game – The Rock, Stone Cold – they’re all cool motherf***ers. Even Ric Flair’s a cool motherf***er, but that new age of those guys are absolute dweebs. It ain’t trash talk, it’s true talk!”
