Video: Conor McGregor Open to WWE Move.. to Replace Vince McMahon as CEO

Conor McGregor has hinted that he is open to a move to WWE – but only if he’s replacing Vince McMahon as CEO.

The Irish fighter has been vocal about the wrestling organisation in the past, criticising their roster of superstars.

Those criticisms have included taking a pop at John Cena and being engulfed in a war of words with wrestling legend Ric Flair.

Some believe the whole spat could be a calculated move from McGregor to build some hype ahead of a WWE move in the future. It may just be that the UFC champion has little respect for the business.

And his latest comments point to that latter. He’s praised McMahon in the past, but insisted in a Facebook Live chat with The SPORT Bible tonight that he’d only entertain a WWE move if he was replacing the billionaire as CEO.

When asked if he didn’t rate the WWE roster, McGregor answered: “Yeah – they’re dweebs! The whole lot of them.”

He was then asked if he could make the move from UFC in the future and his response was just as good, saying: “Maybe as CEO – maybe to take Vince out of the chair. But I don’t know.”

Imagine McGregor strutting his stuff in a suit calling the shots in WWE? We wouldn’t put it past McMahon doing that in the future.
