WWE Reacts To Conor McGregor Offering To Provide 'Back Up' For Current WWE Champion

For years, fans of both MMA and WWE have felt that UFC Superstar Conor McGregor would be a great fit for the Squared Circle if he ever decided to transition from The Octagon. The outspoken Irish-born McGregor has been likened to great pro wrestling heels of the past, and much like Ronda Rousey, might be a welcome addition to the WWE roster.
Triple H and Stephanie McMahon have both made public statements in recent years making it clear Conor McGregor has an open invitation to test out his skills in a pro wrestling ring, and earlier this week the “Notorious” one had WWE fans buzzing when he issued a Tweet to fellow countryman and WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, which prompted the following social media exchange.

Call me when you need Proper back up.

Cheers, Conor. I’m carrying two divisions at the moment, but you know exactly how that is. I hear New York is nice in the spring, though. https://t.co/51VSVCCG28

WWE.com even picked up on the Twitter banter between the WWE and UFC greats, writing, “it looks like Becky Lynch has an ally in fellow countryman Conor McGregor.
“The SmackDown Women’s Champion responded to an article comparing her meteoric rise to McGregor, boasting “The Man channels no one” and that she would break their Irish bond (and his arm) if their paths should happen to cross.

“Lynch, who’s had absolutely no issues holding her own as champion, then thanked McGregor for his offer and mentioned “New York is nice in the spring,” alluding to the fact that WrestleMania 35 will be hosted at MetLife Stadium in the New York/New Jersey region.
“Should The Man ever team up with “The Notorious” somewhere down the line, we fully expect to witness the internet’s collective head exploding.”

As for McGregor possibly making an appearance at WrestleMania 35, while the temptation might be there on McGregor’s part, he remains under contract with UFC, so he would need to get permission to make any type of WWE related appearance. It’s possible UFC could allow him to participate at the event similar to the way Ronda Rousey participated alongside The Rock at WrestleMania 31, however, it is unlikely the MMA juggernaut would allow McGregor to compete in a match.

Steve Austin And More WWE Stars Comment On Shocking Conor McGregor UFC 229 Loss And Chaotic Aftermath

Tonight’s UFC 229 main event featuring Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov appeared to take a page right from the WWE playbook, as the fight had two shocking endings.
The betting underdog in the bout, but popular fan pick, Conor McGregor, lost the fight via submission via a rear-naked choke at 3:03 of round four, but the action did not stop there as a brawl broke out in the cage following the fight when Zubaira Tukhugov hopped the cage and began to assault Conor McGregor. The mayhem did not stop there, however, as Nurmagomedov also jumped the cage and attacked McGregor’s camp.

Per MMAFighting.com, Nurmagomedov won the first two rounds of the fight before Conor McGregor won the third round by a score of 10-9. The bout and its subsequent aftermath has drawn the ire of MMA fans, as the ensuing chaos following the fight was viewed by most as completely unprofessional and a poor look for both Mixed Martial Arts and UFC.
Professional wrestling fans, on the other hand, seemed to eat up every bit of what is being labeled as “sports entertainment” in a UFC Octagon, with fans going so far as to say the fight was a work, and potentially “booked” in a way similar to a pro wrestling match.
It did not take long for the stars of the wrestling world to react to the fight and the post-match pandemonium, as several names including former WWE star Ted DiBiase, Jr, along with WWE Hall of Famers Booker T and Steve Austin, as well as current Raw GM Baron Corbin all took to Twitter to react to the fight.

I love Professional Wrestling.

Heading into tonight’s fight, Khabib Nurmagomedov was 26-0 in UFC, and keeps his undefeated streak alive with his dismantling of Conor McGregor. “The Notorious” McGregor was 9-1 in his career in UFC main events, and as a result of tonight’s loss drops to 9-2 in headlining fights.
The repercussions of tonight’s post-fight brawl have yet to be revealed, but it’s almost certain UFC fans will have more to look forward to in the storied Nurmagomedov and McGregor rivalry.
