Triple H Says McGregor Would Do Well In The WWE, There Are Rivals Already Waiting?

Paul Michael Levesque, famously known as Triple H, says new lightweight champion Conor McGregor would do well in the WWE. If McGregor does decide to go, he will already have natural enemies in the show.

"He could come over, he's got it all, man - he's got the personality, the skills, the talk," Levesque told The Telegraph. "He's an entertainer, for sure."

Levesque adds that McGregor doesn't need to go up to 300 lbs to do well in the WWE. "We have 200 lb guys who are stars, Levesque said.

Levesque was at ringside in New York when McGregor took on Eddie Alvarez for the UFC lightweight championship. McGregor defeated Alvarez in just inside two rounds.

His appearance in New York fueled speculation that about McGregor's pre-fight talk that he had a major announcement. But Levesque, who is the vice-president of Talent at WWE, put it to rest, saying that any announcement McGregor made about WWE will be news to him.

But he adds that McGregor could still go to the WWE and he would do well. "He could do just as well as Floyd Mayweather when he fought the Big Show," Levesque said.

If McGregor does decide to go the WWE route, he will already have several rivals waiting for him at the show. The Washington Post reports that this is thanks to several critical comments McGregor has about several pro-wrestlers over the summer.

McGregor has insulted both John Cena and Brock Lesnar while he was promoting his fight against Nate Diaz at UFC 202 in August. McGregor said how can he respect Lesnar when "he's juiced up to the [expletive] eyeballs?"

Then McGregor referred to Cena as a big fat, 40-year-old failed Mr. Olympia mother[expletive]." Lesnar responded by saying he has bowel movements that are "bigger than" McGregor, while Cena took the high road and tweeted that "Achievement often breeds contempt."
