Conor McGregor remains one of the most well known MMA fighters in the history of combat sports and his accolades over the years speak for themselves. The Notorious is also known to trash talk often, with varied results. Many have wondered if McGregor’s natural charisma would be a good fit for WWE.
While Conor McGregor has backed up his trash talks in the past, more often than not, they have also resulted in embarrassing defeats for him. McGregor also doesn’t presently hold any title in the UFC, but he is on a revenge mission as he takes aim at Dustin Poirier.
While speaking to Dan Patrick on That Scene, John Cena was asked how Conor McGregor would fare if he ever went to WWE. Cena stated that McGregor would be fantastic in WWE and explained why he thought so.
“He’d be fantastic. He is what we do. It’s a little less predictable. Our surprises are getting people to show up at random and weave the ‘choose your own adventure’ into a different alley. His surprises are getting a few teeth knocked out or getting an operation. Not to say that this doesn’t happen with us, mistakes happen, but in his profession it’s not a mistake. I hope (he makes an appearance) because I want to see it. At my core, I’m a fan. He’s interesting and have a gravity about him. I want to see him perform.”
At this point in time, it is not known if conor mcgregor will ever make it to wwe, but nothing is certain in the pro wrestling world. vince mcmahon has a lot of money, which is something Conor McGregor would certainly be interested in.
