The UK Sun reports that UFC Fighter Conor McGregor is once again in talks with WWE about possibly doing a one-off match at next year’s WrestleMania. McGregor last spoke with WWE last year about possibly making appearance at WrestleMania 33, however the two sides couldn’t agree one a figure. McGregor’s number was reportedly way off from what WWE was willing to pay.
Here is an excerpt from the recent UK Sun report:
“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. He has some things to tie up in the UFC before he can do anything else but this is a big money deal so I can’t see him turning it down.”
