Conor McGregor says he’s in talks for WrestleMania appearance, says he ‘created’ Vince McMahon strut

For the second straight year, Conor McGregor is teasing an appearance at WWE’s WrestleMania extravaganza.

McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC), the reigning UFC lightweight champion, was rumored to make a surprise appearance at the WWE’s annual mega-event in 2016, but it didn’t materialize. Former UFC champ Ronda Rousey appeared in 2015 for a segment with The Rock, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, but since then, no UFC fighter has formally appeared on WWE television.

With WrestleMania 33 slated for April 2 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla., the talk of McGregor making a guest appearance has surfaced again, but this time there appears to be greater substance to it.

During a recent Internet pay-per-view interview in Manchester, England, “The Notorious” was asked directly about about the pre-wrestling event, and he admitted there have been discussions but said nothing is close to official.

“Never say never,” McGregor said. “I know there have been conversations. I know (WWE Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative) Triple H was at (my last fight, at UFC 205). I’d love to go into that WWE and have a real knock. Let them have a real knock, and we’ll see what’s what. We’ll see. The conversations are ongoing.”

McGregor’s brash personality and outspoken attitude are the perfect recipe for WWE, but it’s difficult to determine how he would be handled
