Heyman — best known as the mouthpiece for former UFC champion and WWE superstar Brock Lesnar — says the idea of McGregor taking a run at professional wrestling at some point in the future.
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…[the wrestlers who responded to him on Twitter are] suckers. Hook line and sink…There are people mentioning him by name here using our platforms to promote him. He’s not mentioning anybody by name here. Why? Because he has a platform all of his own. That makes him a huge box office attraction, being promoted by other box office attractions that spend their equity talking about him. Kudos to him. He outsmarted everybody, except for me, except for Brock Lesnar.
