At the moment “The Notorious” is taking some time off after losing a historic boxing match against Floyd Mayweather on August 26. Many are expecting Conor Mcgregor’s return to the UFC, but there are some reports coming via “The Sun” that “The Notorious.” is in talks with WWE to get back to the ring for megabucks WrestleMania in April at Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
According to Sun, this is something Conor is always wanted and is a huge wrestling fan. His whole fighting skills, a fierce passion developed by watching performers like Ric Flair and The Rock. That’s not a first time he is getting offers from WWE, back in January Mcgregor mentioned that he was getting offers from the pro-wrestling company, but the money wasn’t up to his taste.
“Conor is a huge wrestling fan,” said the Sun’s source. “His entire persona on stage he has developed from watching performers like Ric Flair and The Rock.
“These are the top dogs at self-promotion and trash talk. He watched these guys when he was younger.
“This is something he’s always wanted to do.
“The WWE guys have asked him to do shows before with them but the timing was never really right.
“But this time it looks like a deal is going to be locked into place.”
