McGregor is reportedly in talks with the WWE to make n appearance at Wrestlemania, in April 2018. Source:
Conor is a huge wrestling fan. His entire persona on stage he has developed from watching performers like Ric Flair and The Rock. These are the top dogs at self-promotion and trash talk. He watched these guys when he was younger. This is something he’s always wanted to do. The WWE guys have asked him to do shows before with them, but the timing was never really right. But this time it looks like a deal is going to be locked into place.
Stephanie McMahon hinted at the news as she praised McGregor and insisted he would do well in the wrestling ring.
I think Conor would be a perfect fit for WWE. He certainly has the personality, the athletic ability, the appeal. He speaks his mind, he is very genuine and authentic and he has a hell of a Vince McMahon swagger.
McMahon, WWE’s chief brand officer, says McGregor’s authenticity and swagger make him a ‘perfect fit for WWE’. McGregor has been linked with a switch to Sports Entertainment previously, due to his mic skills and out-of-ring persona, having become one of the biggest stars in both boxing and MMA. McMahon:

McMahon talks to Yahoo Sports about Susan G. Komen and WWE facing competition.
think competition is always healthy, but what we look at as competition is everything out there —all entertainment and sports programming because we really are such a unique hybrid — there’s nothing like us in the world. Monday Night Football is a competitor to Monday Night RAW. Yes, I think competition is incredibly healthy, no matter where it comes from.

McMahon is interviewed by 13 year-old daughter of LA Times journalists for the Be A Star campaign. Stephanie discusses bullying, Summerslam and business.
I would say the two most important things are to believe in yourself. You have to have confidence. You have to believe in yourself and you also need to have a very strong education. So you need to utilize all of the people and all of the tools that are around you to help you succeed. So if that means staying in school a little longer, if that means learning another language, if that means getting a degree that’s higher than a college degree, those are the things that you need to do. But the most important thing is to believe in yourself and respect yourself.
