Rumours continue to circulate as Conor McGregor continues his hiatus from mixed martial arts. While there is a lot of focus on a potential fight with Floyd Mayweather after the Dubliner acquired a boxing licence in California, it remains unlikely. An opportunity to make money without getting into the ring with arguably the most technically gifted boxer of all time may have arisen.
Paul Michael Levesque, a.k.a Triple H, who serves as the executive vice president of talent, live events and creative for the WWE, has fueled more talk about the future of the lightweight champion after stating if the "right business opportunity" presented itself then the WWE would be willing to talk.
Speaking to the Daily Star Online, Triple H appeared jovial as they conversed about Conor McGregor;
The thing for me with Conor is that he has the world in his hand right now and has a lot of opportunities. But I do know this, I do know that he's a businessman.
And I do know that he's a very smart businessman. And he's open to opportunities for business. I know we're [WWE] open to opportunities for business.
I'd hate to say it again but never say never in the WWE.
I think if it's the right business opportunity for him and it's the right business opportunity for us then I we'd both be open to having conversations and see what could happen down the line.
In some ways, he is custom made for what we do. If that's something that he wants to do then we'd be happy to talk
One can almost picture the scene as the WWE champion, AJ Styles, is partaking in a routine press conference in Orlando ahead of Wrestlemania 33 before a ruckus can be heard from the back. In midst of the chaos, a Dublin accent echoes through the corridors before Conor McGregor emerges to snatch the belt and declaring himself the new face of the wrestling federation.
