Conor McGregor has taken the sports world by storm over the last few years, with his dominance ranging from the Octagon in the UFC all the way to promoting a fight with Floyd Mayweather in the boxing world this past summer. Now, it may be time for him to dive into the WWE universe.
McGregor is the type of person that Vince McMahon would dream of having in a WWE ring, with the mic skills fit for a champion and the stardom that he dreams of creating for his wrestlers. There are plenty of reasons on either side to pursue a run in WWE, and now’s the time to make it happen.
There are endless angles for WWE writers to take when it comes to a possible McGregor appearance, but they’d have to do it right given McGregor’s star power in the sports world. To help them out, we put together the 10 best storylines for McGregor if he were to step into the WWE ring anytime soon.

10. McGregor calls out Jinder Mahal to try and become champion in two different companies
We have already seen how Conor McGregor has attempted — and succeeded — at becoming a two-division champion in the UFC when he beat Eddie Alvarez back at UFC 205 for the lightweight title. Now, if he were to go into the WWE ring, maybe he’d want to become a two-company champion, as well.
This one makes a lot of sense on both ends, and could be a good little publicity stunt for both sides to pull off. McGregor could go to SmackDown one day and decide to call out Jinder Mahal to show why he would be a better WWE champion and represent the company better than Mahal can. With Brock Lesnar holding the Universal title, it wouldn’t make sense for McGregor to call out The Beast Incarnate, but a match with Mahal would seem a lot more legitimate.
It would be a real moneymaker for everyone involved, and may even help to get some more spotlight on Mahal, rather than him just challenging Lesnar to a match. He could pull out a cheap win, and maybe decide he wants to take down all the UFC has, wanting the match with McGregor to prove himself.
We live in a world where David Arquette was a WCW champion, so why can’t McGregor come into the WWE world and take their title for a little while to create buzz on all ends? It helps WWE bring in ratings for SmackDown rather than just focusing on RAW, it gives McGregor the distinction of holding belts in two different companies (one in the UFC and one in WWE) and all sides likely make a lot of money out of it.
