• Former WWE Champion Is Sure Conor McGregor Will Become A Pro-Wrestler
During a recent interview with ESPN Sportsnation, former WWE Champion CM Punk praised the transition of Ronda Rousey and Floyd Mayweather to the world of professional wrestling.
Ronda even became the RAW Women’s Champion and main evented WrestleMania 35, while Floyd worked a WrestleMania 24 match as a Celebrity against The Big Show.
Here’s what the current AEW Superstar said:
“[Floyd] Mayweather crossed over and did a match at WrestleMania, I’m sure we’re eventually going to see [Conor] McGregor come over. [Ronda] Rousey was excellent when she came over.
The bottom line is making money. If you’re making money, you’re technically not doing anything wrong.”
Despite being on somewhat of a losing streak recently, Conor McGregor is still the biggest draw in UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) history.

• On This Day In WWF History (December 29, 2009) – Old School Wrestling Legend Passed Away
On this day in 2009, we lost Old School Wrestling Legend “Dr. Death” Steve Williams at the age of 49 due to throat cancer.
During his career, Williams wrestled for some of the biggest and most famous wrestling companies ever, such as the World Wrestling Federation (1998-1999), World Championship Wrestling (1988-1990, 1992, 1999), Extreme Championship Wrestling (1996, 1997), UWF/Mid-South Wrestling (1982-1987) and All Japan Pro Wrestling.
In 1995, Jim Ross pushed hard for McMahon to bring Dr. Death to the World Wrestling Federation, with J.R. intending to get a legitimate tough guy who could shut up The Kliq and be immune to their bullsh*t and backstage politics.
Williams received an offer and was already booked to win the 1995 King of the Ring tournament and get the main event push that came with it, but unfortunately he was still under contractually obligated to work several upcoming AJPW shows, so it was impossible for him to accept the WWF’s offer.
He was the favorite to win the infamous Brawl For All tournament in 1998/1999, but competed with an injury, which caused him to lose to Bart Gunn, who ended up winning the entire thing.
Steve was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2021 as part of their annual “Legacy Wing” inductions.
REST IN PEACE DR. DEATH!
