The way McGregor and Mayweather came to be is very much WWE style. The constant jabbing and the story surrounding those two is what got us here. Not to mention the giant money bag that’s going to be around this.
It’s clear why Triple H would want them especially with the way WWE’s ratings have been going. Triple H spoke to Sky Sports HQ over in the Uk and here’s what he said.
“You say it is sports entertainment and, if they want to really showcase what they can do, I would invite both guys to come to Monday Night Raw!”
One thing Floyd Mayweather is is entertaining, one thing Conor McGregor is is entertaining. I’d invite both guys to come to Monday Night Raw because there’s no bigger platform to show the world who’s the bigger man.
The best part of this fight will be the promo leading up to it and to be honest having them do something on Raw would be pretty cool. Bridging all gaps of the fighting world.
As for McGregor and Mayweather they both have WWE history. Mayweather actually fought against Big Show at Wrestlemania and as for McGregor his people have been in talks with WWE at various points. WWE wants and have wanted him for some time now.
McGregor’s name is in the mouths of many WWE superstars including Enzo who tweeted about McGregor and the fight. Then, there was that other time when McGregor said he’d slap the head off the entire WWE roster. Let’s just say McGregor has some nice heat coming from the locker room.
