There has been a lot of talk about Conor McGregor one day making the transition to the WWE or at least dabbling like Floyd Mayweather did many years ago. In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, former WWE champion Chris Jericho said that it is a "no-brainer" that McGregor will one day end up in the WWE in some capacity.

"It might not be this year or the year after that because there's a lot of money that you got to spend to get him in there," Jericho said. "But a guy that yappy, who knows the concept of cutting a Wrestling promo... I think Conor will definitely end up there, it's just a matter of when he wants to."

Conor McGregor cutting promos

Conor McGregor proved in the lead up to his boxing match against Floyd Mayweather that he could use his mouth to sell a fight that most people thought he had no chance of winning.

That pay-per-view got millions of buys and the betting odds were ridiculous and much of that has to do with Conor selling the fight.

It isn't just major fights like the one against Floyd Mayweather that has Conor McGregor opening his mouth. Before his 2016 fight with Nate Diaz, Conor decided to sell himself as a major heel in the world of professional wrestling. Instead of just talking smack about Diaz, McGregor called out the entire WWE locker room, calling everyone there except Triple H and The Rock "pu**ies."

The built-in storyline

The fact that Conor McGregor called out the WWE locker room, including taking shots at names like Brock Lesnar and "Nature Boy" Ric Flair, he has set himself up for a major storyline there if he decides to sign with the company. When Floyd Mayweather signed with the WWE for a WrestleMania match with Big Show, he made over $25 million.

McGregor could also warrant a huge payday like that for minimal work outside of talking - which seems to be his favorite pastime.

WWE superstar Enzo Amore recently made the news when he dropped thousands of dollars to sit at ringside of the Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather fight. While Enzo Amore is not a quality wrestler at all, he is one of the best talkers in the WWE and a promo battle between Enzo and Conor could be a classic - and Amore is one of the few wrestlers who wouldn't dwarf McGregor.

Chris Jericho didn't just stop at Conor McGregor either. Jericho also said that former UFC women's champion Ronda Rousey will end up in the WWE one way or another, as well. Rousey was at the Mae Young Classic and took part in a WrestleMania angle with Stephanie McMahon two years ago.
