A source had the following to say to SunSport:
“Conor is a huge wrestling fan. His entire persona on stage he has developed from watching performers like Ric Flair and The Rock. 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 should be noted that in January, WWE presented McGregor with a “hefty offer,” which he declined.
Last week Stephanie McMahon participated in a ‘Leaders in Sports’ convention at Stamford Bridge where she had the following to say:
“I think Conor would be a perfect fit with WWE. He certainly has the personality and the athletic ability, the appeal. He speaks his mind, he’s very genuine and authentic and he has a hell of a Vince McMahon swagger.”
“The rest are dweebs. What’s the main guy? John Cena. He’s 40, he’s 40 years of age. He’s walking around in a illuminous orange t-shirt and a headband talking about [how] no one can see him. We can see him right there, he’s a big fat 40 year old failed Mr. Olympia motherf–ker! They’re dweebs, those guys! Like I said, no disrespect to the Dons of the game. I mean Vinny Mac’s a f–king legend. They wrote Vinny Mac a couple of years ago, then he rose back up and he’s back in the billionaires club. What he’s been able to do with that bunch of dweebs he has over there at the moment has been phenomenal and I respect him for that. And then of course, the old G’s of the game – The Rock, Stone Cold – they’re all cool mother f–kers. Even Ric Flair’s a cool mother f–ker… but that new age of those guys are absolute dweebs… it ain’t trash talk, it’s true talk!”
