The Telegraph out of the United Kingdom had a reporter at UFC 205 in New York City on Sunday that obtained a quote from Triple H about WWE’s interest in Conor McGregor. Hunter praised The Notorious One for being a three-tool guy:
“He could come over, he's got it all, man - he's got the personality, the skills, the talk. He's an entertainer, for sure.
"What does he walk around at? 180lbs? I have smaller guys now in the WWE. We have 200lb guys who are stars. You don't need to be 300lbs any more.”
As for anything happening soon or if Hunter was on a scouting mission, Triple H pushed back:
“If his announcement has anything to do with WWE, then it's news to me… But yeah, he could do just as well as Floyd Mayweather when he fought the Big Show. That really worked. Conor could do it for sure.”
Earlier today, we made note of WWE’s interest and detailed how the groundwork was already set.
