WWE legend Triple H fuels Conor McGregor wrestling fire

The WWE Executive Vice-President of Talent and former wrestling star has fuelled speculation that Irish UFC star Conor McGregor could link up with the promotion.

Paul Michael Levesque, better known as Triple H, gave an interesting insight into the possibility of the Dubliner appearing in the WWE.

The WWE EVP had a ringside seat to McGregor's historic victory over Eddie Alvarez on Saturday night as the Notorious became first double-belt holder in the UFC.

Levesque was quizzed by Telegraph journalist Gareth Davies on whether the Crumlin fighter could make a crossover appearance in the WWE.

"He could come over, he's got it all, man - he's got the personality, the skills, the talk. He's an entertainer, for sure," Triple H told the paper.

"What does he walk around at? 180lbs (pounds)? I have smaller guys now in the WWE. We have 200lb guys who are stars. You don't need to be 300lbs any more."

The sighting of Levesque at UFC 205 caused fans to think that McGregor's big announcement (which turned out to be that he will soon become a father) was of an imminent move to the WWE, though Triple H wasn't any the wiser:

"If his announcement has anything to do with WWE, then it's news to me.

"But yeah, he could do just as well as Floyd Mayweather when he fought the Big Show. That really worked.

"Conor could do it for sure."

Just this evening, Levesque posted the following tweet to add further weight to the rumours:

For his part, McGregor feels that his unbridled success inside and outside of the octagon means that he should own a piece of the UFC.
