As the world waits for Conor McGregor's next move, the latest buzz the WWE is that McGregor might be joining soon. If ever Conor McGregor decides to jump from mixed martial arts to professional wrestling, he'll have the best promo man in the history of the business to back him up.

UFC News: Conor McGregor Would Be A Box Office Hit In WWE

According to DailyMail, Brock Lesnar manager Paul Heyman said that if Conor McGregor joined the WWE, it would be a great move for McGregor himself. Conor has long been linked with a move to wrestling.

Paul Heyman believes that McGregor would be a great fit in the WWE and Heyman even offered to represent McGregor himself. Heyman said that 'It'd be great if he was. He's a main line box office attraction. He's a headline news grabber. I think it'd be great for WWE and I think it would be even better for Conor McGregor."

Heyman also said that there are many people talking about McGregor using WWE platforms to promote themselves. But not for McGregor, because he has a platform all of his own, and it makes him a huge box office attraction, being promoted by other box office attractions that spend their time talking about him.

WWE Chief Operating Officer Triple H had previously told the media that he would be interested in speaking to McGregor. The WWE have also been linked with a move for Ronda Rousey, who is expected to retire from the UFC after her loss to Amanda Nunes.

UFC News: Conor McGregor Want To Slap WWE Roster

The Sun reported that Conor McGregor previously hit out at the idea that he would join WWE, claiming that he would 'slap the head off their entire roster. And McGregor even followed it with "twice on Sundays". As expected, many WWE wrestlers responded angrily, but Heyman believes it was part of McGregor's strategy. "He outsmarted everybody, except for me, except for Brock Lesnar," said Heyman.

 McGregor is currently on a hiatus as he awaits the birth of his first child with partner Dee Devlin. There's no telling what his next move will be, but there will always be rumors about his future.
