Conor McGregor has had the wrestling community abuzz recently after posting a photo of him with the WWE Championship and the UFC Championship draped on his shoulders with the caption “McMahon vs McGregor CEO Flashmatch”
That’s right, McGregor seems to be challenging 70-year old Vince McMahon to a match…
Social media has of course been speculating that this could be McGregor hinting at a WWE run following his latest ‘retirement’ from MMA.
Although there is no chatter of any official discussions taking place between the two parties, WWE Champion Drew McIntyre has stoked the fire with his tweet in response to the former UFC Champ-Champ.
McIntyre references the clip of McGregor punching the elderly man in a bar, and then goes on to say that McGregor is simply “the latest guy thinking he can have his PR team stick my title on his shoulder & walk into our world.”
We shall see if McGregor follows in the footsteps of other former UFC stars who made the transition to WWE.
If McGregor joined WWE, how big a success would you expect him to be on the scale of Ronda Rousey to Cain Velasquez?
