Conor McGregor told Fox Sports back in January that he was in talks with WWE about a potential appearance at this year’s WrestleMania 33 event.
“Never say never. I know there’s been conversations. I know Triple H was at the show (UFC 205). I’d love to go to that WWE and have a real knock. Let one of them have a real knock and see what’s what. We’ll see. There’s conversations ongoing. I’ve turned down some things, conversations still ongoing.”
It’s now being said that WWE and McGregor couldn’t come to terms on a financial agreement and he will not be appearing at the event. McGregor wanted way more for an appearance than WWE was not willing to pay.
