Ever since Conor McGregor suffered a TKO loss in his professional boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather Jr., fight fans have been patiently waiting to see what will be next for the UFC superstar. While “Notorious” failed to take over the world of boxing in a single fight, fans have been speculating that McGregor may be making a jump to professional wrestling.
Speaking on FOX Sports’ The Herd with Colin Cowherd, WWE announcer Jim Ross revealed that he believes it is inevitable that McGegor will see a massive payday in the wreslting promotion.
“I know that he’s an amazing performer, and amazing talent. And I have a great respect for the UFC, everything they do, and him. There’s no way you can convince me Conor McGregor will not earn a massive check from Vince McMahon some day in the future.
“It will not be a career deal, it will be a one-off special occasion, massive promotion. I would suggest maybe at a WrestleMania somewhere down the road. The attraction’s there, the marketing’s there, the money’s there… Why not make it happen? I think Conor is guaranteed for that, and I also think that Conor’s not done in the Octagon, either. I think that he’s a competitor. He likes to prove he’s the alpha male.”
