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
— The Man (@BeckyLynchWWE) November 22, 2018

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.

Original WWE Plans For Dean Ambrose Heel Turn Revealed

After many weeks of teasing his departure, Dean Ambrose turned his back on Seth Rollins following their Raw Tag Team Championship victory by defeating Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre. Shockingly, even though they just won the tag team titles, Ambrose viciously attacked his Shield brethren, then proceeded to walk up the crowd section into the hallway.
Although the way the turn happened was shocking, the actual turn itself was expected by many. In fact, there was a strong speculation that Ambrose was going to turn against Rollins at the end of 2017 when they had the tag team titles, but Ambrose was injured and shelved for eight months.

With the unfortunate announcement of Roman Reigns leaving the ring and forfeiting his Universal Championship due to battling leukemia, this reportedly made plans change regarding the direction of Ambrose’s heel turn.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the Ambrose heel turn was sped up due to the emotion of the night, as this method was considered to be more effective than taking the weekly twists and turns to eventually get to that moment.

It was also reported that Ambrose’s turn was slated to lead to a title program with Roman Reigns. The expectation was for Ambrose to initially feud with Rollins, since that was supposed to be the plan last year heading into this year’s WrestleMania in New Orleans. However, with the report of a Reigns vs. Ambrose title feud, it looks like the Ambrose turn would have led to another twist.

As we recently reported, The Shield was scheduled to compete as a unit on the Raw go-home show in Washington, D.C. leading into WrestleMania 35. However, with Reigns’ announcement, The Shield as a trio was forced to disband, and plans changed regarding the course of Ambrose’s turn. Even if a reunion occurred before WrestleMania, it would not make much sense now, since Reigns will be shelved for the foreseeable future.

Current WWE 'SmackDown Live' Star Could Be Facing Ronda Rousey At 'WrestleMania 35'

Ronda Rousey’s journey in WWE has been well publicized not only by the pro wrestling media but by the mainstream media as well. The current Raw Women’s champion has fully established herself in the company and she is perhaps the most highly marketable female Superstars in WWE.
But the question of who she will face at WrestleMania 35 has been asked from the moment she first debuted with Vince McMahon’s company. Now there may be an answer. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter (via Comic Book) is reporting that Becky Lynch may be the one to face The Baddest Woman on the Planet.

Evidently Lynch has gained such an edge since her infamous heel turn that the company is looking at her in a whole new light. Becky is so hot right now that it may just be enough to book the Irish Lass Kicker against Rousey on The Grandest Stage of Them All.

This news surely comes as a surprise to many WWE fans, who believed it would be Charlotte Flair that would get the nod against Ronda. It seemed like the perfect match due to the status of both stars. Ronda represented the world of MMA and Charlotte represented the world of WWE.

But is seems that as Becky’s star continues to burn bright, Charlotte’s has somewhat dimmed. Though the company likely didn’t expect it, Becky has been catapulted to the top and Flair has lost a step. This has apparently affected WWE’s booking plans as it pertains to WrestleMania 35.
It’s unknown if WWE will indeed move forward with Ronda Rousey versus Becky Lynch at WrestleMania and there is still plenty of time for the company to make a different move. Becky is scheduled to defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship against Charlotte Flair in a Last Woman Standing Match at Crown Jewel on November 2.
