• WWE Signing Major UFC Stars For Possible Huge WrestleMania 35 Match?
According to the No Holds Barred podcast, there’s a rumor going on that WWE is planning to sign former UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor and current UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier to a deal for a non-wrestling role at WrestleMania 35.
The rumor states that Ronda Rousey vs. Becky Lynch will take place at WrestleMania 35, with Cormier being in Rousey’s corner and McGregor being in Lynch’s corner.
If this is indeed true, then it would make big time sense since this could be the first ever women’s WrestleMania main event and having top UFC stars and the biggest draw in combat sports today, Conor McGregor, involved in that match will obviously result in major mainstream attention for WrestleMania 35.
However, this rumor is in strong disagreement with a report from Dirty Sheets, which stated that WWE officials feel that the hottest Women’s Division matches that they can book for WrestleMania 35 are:
– Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair (Rematch)
– Becky Lynch vs. Nia Jax
It should be noted that WWE hasn’t finalized any match for WrestleMania 35 so far, so anything is possible!
