Conor McGregor will consider joining World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). This is according to his agent Audie Attar. However, the wrestling promotion must first come up with an offer for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) superstar.

“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.” Attar said on the Five Rounds podcast on Tuesday, as reported by Brian Campbell of ESPN.

There are reports suggesting that WWE wants to bring in McGregor for WrestleMania 33. The wrestling promotion has always been interested in the mixed-martial-arts (MMA) star. They want him to be one of the main attractions of the company’s biggest pay-per-view of the year, according to comicbook.com.

14-time world champion Triple H was recenlty spotted attending UFC 205 at the Madison Square Garden in New York. This started the rumors of Conor McGregor joining WWE. The 47-year-old later expressed his opinion on The Notorious joining the wrestling promotion.

“He could come over, he’s got it all, man. He’s got the personality, the skills, the talk. He’s an entertainer, for sure.” Triple H said to the Daily Telegraph.

McGregor currently is the most popular superstar within the UFC. The man from Crumlin, Dublin, Ireland has a 21-3 career record. The 28-year-old currently holds both the featherweight and lightweight division championships.

UFC ranks McGregor at No. 2 on its pound-for-pound fighter in the world. He trails Demetrious Johnson, who is at No. 1.

Will WWE dressing room accept McGregor?

Conor McGregor doesn’t have the best of relationships with WWE. It is uncertain how the dressing room of the wrestling promotion will accept the UFC star.

McGregor has already made enemies within the WWE. He wrote a tweet in August targeting the entire roster of the organization.

The UFC fighter called out WWE/UFC crossover star Brock Lesnar during a teleconference ahead of his UFC 202 rematch with Nate Diaz as well. He also referred to WWE superstars in general as “massive p—ies.”
