Triple H says he would welcome Conor McGregor joining WWE, claiming the two-weight UFC champion has “got it all”.
The WWE legend, real name Paul Levesque, was ringside in Madison Square Garden on Saturday night as McGregor beat Eddie Alvarez to add the lightweight strap to his featherweight belt.
Triple H believes McGregor, the first man to hold titles in two weight divisions in UFC simultaneously, has the showmanship to thrive in professional wrestling.
“He could come over, he’s got it all,” the 14-time WWE world champion told The Telegraph. “He’s got the personality, the skills, the talk. He’s an entertainer, for sure.”
Triple H, nicknamed The Game, reckons the Irishman’s diminutive stature would not impede him if he moved to WWE.
He added: “What does he walk around at? 180lbs? I have smaller guys now in the WWE. We have 200lb guys who are stars. You don’t need to be 300lbs anymore.
“He could do just as well as Floyd Mayweather when he fought the Big Show [at WrestleMania 24 in 2008].
“Conor could do it for sure.”
