Conor McGregor has been very vocal about his admiration of the old school pro wrestlers such as Ric Flair and Vince McMahon. He’s very close to Becky Lynch and was supporting her all throughout to win the gold at WrestleMania.
I think he wants to [join the WWE], he’s been talking a lot. Conor is one of those guys that will shoot first and then shake hands later. He did it last year when he tried to call out the wrestlers. I think he’ll have a good opportunity to come over here and shake things up, run his mouth a little bit and bring some notoriety. I’d like to see him in. It would be cool.
At the same time, Lashley believes that WWE will never put a major championship around McGregor’s waist. Here’s his take:
Will McGregor ever come to WWE? We’ll have to wait and see. How well do you think he’ll do in the non-scripted world of sports entertainment
