WWE is always on the hunt to work with relevant celebrities and athletes who can help draw in some huge ratings, so it’s clear why the signing of Ronda Rousey is such a massive deal as she’s probably the biggest signing WWE has ever made.
The company has a habit of bringing stars in regularly, especially towards WrestleMania season and there are plenty of names they have worked with before Rousey officially became a part of the WWE roster.
Snoop Dogg, Mr. T, Floyd Mayweather, Shaquille O’Neal - the list can go on.
However, one name WWE has continually been linked with over a couple of years is another UFC star in the form of Conor McGregor.
The Irishman has drawn plenty of interest ranging from Hollywood to video games, and his appeal is visible to see as he’s taken the UFC to levels that have never been reached before. However, although the Notorious is a fan of the likes of Vince McMahon, he’s not the biggest fan of John Cena.
McGregor hit the headlines for destroying WWE’s entire roster in a savage tweet, but he singled out Cena during a Q&A session.
At the time, he said: “What’s the main guy? John Cena.
“He’s 40. He’s 40 years of age. He’s walking around in a luminous orange t-shirt and a headband talking about nobody can see him.
“We can see him right there. He’s a big, fat, 40-year-old failed Mr. Olympia m**********r.”
Despite that, entertainment.ie recently caught up with Cena to discuss his upcoming Blockers movie where he stated that McGregor would be welcome to join WWE and admits he wants to see him in the company.
He said: “He would do fantastic, hell, he would put me out of work.
“He gets the entertainment aspect of sport, and I think he gets it as good, or better than anyone else. The way he promoted the fight against [Floyd] Mayweather - that’s what we do. He did it as good, or better than us.
“I hope one day, if you’re out there watching and you want to come to WWE, he would be a fantastic WWE superstar.”
It’s clear why Cena wants him there, as he’s a bona fide star who demands attention. However, based on his previous comments on WWE and its roster, he might not be welcomed with open arms.
