According to reports from SunSport, UFC Star Conor McGregor is in talks with WWE for a one-off appearance at the Show of Shows WrestleMania next year. Here is what the report says:
“Conor is a huge wrestling fan. His entire persona on stage he has developed from watching performers like Ric Flair and The Rock,” a source told SunSport. “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.”
It’s worth noting here that over the past few months multiple WWE officials have spoken positively about Conor and it was just recently when Stephanie McMahon said that he would fit perfectly in WWE.
It’s yet to be seen if McGregor actually ends up appearing at the upcoming Mania though at this point both WWE and Conor McGregor himself appear to be interested in working together so it shouldn’t be a surprise if he ends up appearing at the show.
