Taking a page from the Brock Lesnar book of contract negotiations, Conor McGregor wasn’t just content to shout out his fellow Irishman and John Kavanagh trainee Becky Lynch on her big win last night (April 7) at WrestleMania 35.
McGregor had lots of nice things to say about the women in a company where he once said most of the current men’s roster were “absolute dweebs”. And heading into likely talks with Dana White about his next trip to the Octagon, the recently “retired” UFC fighter also suggested that maybe, just maybe, he’d be willing to give the combat sport with scripted outcomes a shot…
Congrats to Irelands Becky Lynch, the WWE’s first Champ Champ.
What a match these ladies put on! Ronda Rousey is something special in that ring, as is Charlotte Flair of the Flair dynasty!
Stephanie McMahon you are right, I could not do what these athletes do.
Or could I…

The 30 year old from Dublin probably has several more lucrative shoot fights ahead of him before he cashes his first check from “real don” Vince McMahon. But who knows in this crazy game. Never say never and all that.
