The biggest WWE story of the past week is the rumor involving Conor McGregor possibly signing for the WWE to make an appearance at WrestleMania next year in New Orleans.
The Sun published a story stating a deal was close between WWE and The Notorious. They also said that working with WWE is something which McGregor has always wanted to do after watching the likes of Ric Flair and The Rock perform while he was growing up.
However, these rumors have been shut down for the time being, as UFC's Dana White has revealed an exchange of text messages between himself and Vince McMahon which show the speculation has no truth behind it.
The UFC President showed the replies he received from Vince when he asked him about the story, and these replies said: "News to me," and "It might be good someday but not now." However, this hasn't stopped some WWE superstars from teasing a possible match with McGregor in the future.
Speaking to The Sun, Finn Balor stated that WWE managing to sign the UFC Lightweight Champion would be a huge benefit to everyone in the company.
The Demon King said: “I try and keep myself out of rumors, but it is Conor McGregor and the WWE. It’s a huge coupe for the WWE. Without a doubt the biggest sports star in the world right now. He would bring a huge amount of eyes to our product, which would benefit everyone in WWE.”
As for McGregor possibly making an appearance at WrestleMania, the former Universal Champion said he would love to see it happen, and he also said he would like to be the superstar that shares the ring with him in a match, whether it be as his opponent or his tag team partner.
Balor said: “I hope there’s an opportunity for a story to emerge. We’re all looking forward to having Conor at WrestleMania…If I was given the opportunity to get in the ring beside Conor, or across the ring to face him, it would be huge for me.”
Balor vs McGregor would be a brilliant match to see, as both of them are of similar height and size, and The Demon King also has the ring knowledge to lead a match with Notorious to a standard which everyone should be able to enjoy despite McGregor inexperience inside a WWE ring.
