UFC star, Conor McGregor, will consider an offer from WWE to cross over to the popular wrestling franchise.
Paul “Triple H” Levesque, Vice President of Talent of World Wrestling Entertainment, has delivered an informal offer to Conor McGregor to join the wrestling franchise. McGregor is currently a mega star with Ultimate Fighting Championship commanding international attention with each of his fights for his prowess in the cage and his out of cage antics. Triple H believes that McGregor could cross over to the WWE easily. According to Triple H, McGregor has the athleticism, skills, and personality to become a star on both fronts. WWE has launched athletes such as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and John Cena into movie star careers. The same could happen for the flamboyant Irishman, McGregor.
Triple H was in attendance at UFC 205 in New York City for the McGregor fight against Eddie Alvarez in which McGregor became the first UFC athlete to hold two weight class championship belts simultaneously. Manager for Team McGregor, Audi Attar, said the UFC star would certainly consider any formal offer made by the WWE.
“I think it’s phenomenal that a guy like Triple H was at the fights,” said Attar in an interview with ESPN. “I heard he said some positive things, which is always good to hear,” he added. “I think it’s all about business, man. If (WWE) is going to come with an offer, we are willing to entertain it. We are here. Have their people call his people — which is me. We can have a conversation.”
