WWE has many big names in the company and the company can sign even bigger names when they need to. From the looks of it, WWE is now trying to sign Georges St-Pierre.
While being interviewed by TVA Sports, Georges St-Pierre revealed that WWE approached him while he was attending the ESPN awards ceremony. The company made an offer that he is considering. Here is what he said:
“I was at an ESPN event in the United States, the awards ceremony, and I got approached by the WWE. I had just retired, and, it’s a form of competition, but of course, it’s also scripted, so I don’t know if I’d be willing to relive that. Perhaps for a special event, so I could taste it. But I don’t know if I’d want to sign a contract and do it every week and making it a living. Maybe for a special appearance.”
“Perhaps we will get back to them on that. I don’t know, but for the moment, there are no discussions at all. They wanted to contact my agents, I gave them their number, but I don’t want to switch to wrestling full-time.”
His coming to WWE will most likely not be full-time. Depending on how WWE uses him in certain angles, he can definitely be a big draw for the company.
