Could Conor McGregor make it in the WWE?

The WWE have long been regarded for producing some of the biggest names in sport, due to their charisma and physique.

In recent year the likes of the Rock, John Cena and Batista have become household names for their efforts inside the ring, their strong chat on the microphone and presence outside of the WWE.

There have also been plenty of cases where a star from another sport has come into the wrestling organisation for either a brief stint or one-off and shone brightly.
For example, UFC women’s star Ronda Rousey was previously a big attraction when featuring partnering up with superstar the Rock.

Meanwhile, boxing legend and undefeated five-division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr is another to have graced the WWE and made a strong impact, mainly through their already glowing reputation in their own skillset or role.

With the WWE always on the lookout for the next biggest superstar to take over and become either a loveable hero or intense villain (or heel), there’s one sporting personality who could take such a plunge soon.

UFC lightweight champion and face of MMA Conor McGregor has shot to superstardom in a short space of time, since making his debut in the organisation only back in 2013.

With many big WWE events coming up, such as the Royal Rumble, making the most of the free bets on offer from Paddy Power and the promising odds should prove prosperous for what has already been a great year for the sport.

The Irishman has been influencial in the UFC, first being crowned featherweight champion by beating former title holder Jose Aldo incredibly inside just 13 seconds.

His charsima and trash talking in press conferences or whenever there’s a camera or microphone in front of him is simply superb and has helped draw in mammoth, record-breaking audiences and numbers for UFC events.

His most-recent outing actually took place in a boxing ring as he somehow managed to talk and work himself into a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
On American soil he was expectedly outclassed by the man who has become arguably the greatest fighter of his generation, as ‘Money’ Mayweather’ rallied to a 50th consecutive professional victory, taking his record to an incredible 50-0.

But how about McGregor moving across to the WWE?

The deadly Dubliner has everything needed to make such a gallant switch across sports.

His following and fanbase are second to none of late, while his personality and charisma would make him an instant smash hit in front of a WWE audience each week on RAW or Smackdown.
The numbers for WWE pay-per-views would certainly rocket too and it’s a move that come to fruition in the near future.
