Vince McMahon’s return to WWE as the Executive Chairman made it quite evident that he planned on selling the company to the highest bidder. After almost months of going back and forth between potential buyers, WWE was sold to UFC’s parent company Endeavor. Now it appears that The Undertaker joked that UFC fighters could learn how to cut a proper promo after WWE and UFC’s deal.
Endeavor is now the controlling owner of WWE, and they will merge UFC and WWE into a new publicly traded company. This is truly a massive deal and will lead to significant changes that will be felt by both pro wrestling as well as the Combat sports world for a long time.
As previously reported, the new name of the publicly traded company will be TKO Group Holdings. Naturally, fans continue to wonder whether a crossover between both companies would ever happen.
While speaking with The Independent, WWE Hall Of Famer The Undertaker talked about WWE and UFC’s merger. The Deadman joked that UFC fighters could learn to do a proper promo and build fights.
“It’s going to make both companies stronger. I really don’t think they need too much interaction because they’re such different entities. Maybe some of those [UFC] guys can learn to do a proper promo and really build some good fights.
Both companies will continue to grow. You may see a few more fighters in the WWE audience and a few more wrestlers in their audience. But I don’t really envision too much crossover.”
The likes of Conor McGregor certainly don’t need any tips on how to cut a promo, as his mouth has won him a lot of fame in the UFC. Regardless, we’ll have to see whether McGregor will make his way to WWE.
