Conor McGregor To Appear At WrestleMania?
The chances of Conor McGregor eventually working with WWE appear to be growing, that is, if you believe a recent report by the Sun Sport out of the U.K.

According to the Sun Sport report, a deal to bring the UFC Lightweight Champion to the WWE for a one-off appearance at WrestleMania "is close" to being agreed on.

A source told the U.K. media outlet the following:

"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."
