Ever due to the fact Conor McGregor rose to the best of the MMA planet, professional wrestling lovers have speculated over if and when he’d make the bounce in excess of to professional wrestling and appear in a WWE ring. And though McGregor has antagonized WWE wrestlers on social media in the earlier, he is under no circumstances entirely shut the door on the notion. John Cena was asked about the idea even though speaking with Dan Patrick this week and gave it his complete endorsement, believing McGregor’s charismatic and bombastic persona would be the ideal match for sports activities enjoyment.
“It is enjoyment. You have to acquire into that reality. If you never believe you happen to be piece of that globe we are in or your opponent is a piece of that environment, it doesn’t work,” Cena mentioned (h/t Fightful). “I do not check out considerably MMA or just about anything. To me, it is accurate combat sport, but then a dude like (Conor) McGregor will come alongside with a wonderful identity and will discuss folks into the developing. You possibly root for him or root towards him and you get his fight, like (Floyd) Mayweather or (Muhammad) Ali, they speak about building that fantastic temperament and believing in it. The way to make folks invest in into you as a WWE persona is to fall the make consider of it and make it a fact and believe that in what you do.
“He’d be superb. He is what we do,” he later included. “It truly is a little a lot less predictable. Our surprises are acquiring persons to display up at random and weave the ‘choose your very own adventure’ into a distinctive alley. His surprises are having a number of teeth knocked out or having an operation. Not to say that this won’t take place with us, blunders come about, but in his profession it is really not a slip-up. I hope (he would make an look) simply because I want to see it. At my main, I am a lover. He is exciting and have a gravity about him. I want to see him complete.”
Cena is far from the only main star to give McGregor that sort of endorsement. The two-time previous UFC Winner has shed a few of his past 4 fights, with his latest defeat coming in opposition to Dustin Poirier in July when he endured an ankle damage all through the opening round.
“He’s teased [coming to WWE] a pair of instances,” Sheamus explained to Electronic Spy back in January. “He’s even now staying energetic, he’s a lad who’s received belts, he’s accomplished a lot, so I consider he’s that form of person who’s constantly striving to try out his hand at anything unique. I imagine WWE would accommodate him down to the floor. You know, we have experienced a great deal of people appear in and out, [Floyd] Mayweather arrived in, a large amount of superstars have appear in, a good deal of athletics people. So I really don’t think any one would elevate eyebrows if he arrived in to WWE. I do not believe it is if, I assume it’s a issue of when to be honest.”
