It seems that UFC superstar Conor McGregor may have let slip possible plans for a Summer Slam matchup in WWE against their top star Roman Reigns.
There is a lot of crossover between the mixed martial arts and professional wrestling fan bases and it has been that way for years. But there have also been many top talents in those worlds that have switched industries over the last decade.
WWE greats like Brock Lesnar, CM Punk, Bobby Lashley, and Dave Batista made the jump into MMA with varying levels of success. While UFC stars and legends like Ronda Rousey, Matt Riddle, Shayna Bazler, and Ken Shamrock left cage fighting behind to make their way to the land of sports entertainment.
One superstar from the world of MMA that has often flirted with making an appearance in pro wrestling is former two-division UFC champion, Conor McGregor. He is the only fighter in company history to be allowed to compete in boxing while under contract, and with the two promotions now set to be merged under an all-new company, the possibilities of further crossover between WWE and UFC seem as likely as ever.
With the merger being close to finalized, the WWE’s long history of spectacle bouts with stars from other industries, a Reigns vs. McGregor matchup should almost be expected at some point in the near future.
