Appearing on Good Day New York (h/t Corey Jacobs of WrestlingNews.co), White said he texted WWE Chairman Vince McMahon before the show, and McMahon responded, “News to me,” regarding the rumors.
White said McMahon also texted, “It might be good someday but not now,” in reference to McGregor making a WWE appearance.
On Wednesday, Adam Higgins of the UK Sun reported that McGregor was “close” to a deal with WWE to appear and potentially wrestle at WrestleMania 34.
Higgins cited a source close to McGregor who said 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.”
