Conor McGregor could work with Triple H if he appears at WrestleMania 33

While UFC fans have to deal with the fact that they may not see Conor McGregor return to the Octagon until next summer, WWE fans may be seeing him sooner.

It’s no secret that the huge rumour circulating since UFC 205 is the WWE’s continued interest in bringing the Irishman over to the squared circle, and using him in a role at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando next year.


McGregor’s manager, Audie Attar, has already admitted that they are willing to entertain offers from the WWE, despite what the outspoken mixed martial artist may have said about numerous WWE stars over the past year.

He said: “I think it’s all about business, man. If [WWE] is going to come with an offer, we are willing to entertain it. We are here.

“Have their people call his people – which is me. We can have a conversation.”

They might be calling his people relatively soon, as Triple H was in attendance at Madison Square Garden to watch the Notorious create history by knocking out Eddie Alvarez inside two rounds.

Following the outcome, he didn’t hide his desire to bring another UFC star over to the WWE, stating he has it all to succeed in a WWE ring.

Earlier this month, it was suggested that should the two parties be able to come to an agreement, the WWE will only use him in a segment capacity, rather than an actual match.

This means he could follow in the footsteps of Ronda Rousey, rather than what Floyd Mayweather did when he competed against The Big Show at WrestleMania 24 – although he’d probably want a similar fee to the undefeated boxer.

CageSideSeats originally reported that McGregor could potentially work with The Rock next year, but RingSideNews are now claiming he may actually go on to work with Triple H himself.


Any segment involving the hottest sports star on the planet right now would go down as memorable, and appearing alongside – or even opposite – someone like The Cerebral Assassin would be a historic moment.

If this is the case, it’ll be interesting to see how they play this out, considering The Game is strongly rumoured to battle Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 33, a match that was originally scheduled to happen this year instead.

However, similar to what he did two years ago, he may go on to perform double duty.

After defeating Sting, Triple H swapped his wrestling trunks for his suit to appear alongside Stephanie McMahon, opposite Rousey and The Rock, so something similar could happen again especially since he’s been full of praise for the Irishman.
