The Undertaker thinks Conor McGregor would fit in the WWE

The Deadman had a tenure in the WWE that spanned decades, so when he says someone has potential, the WWE best listen.

Conor McGregor knows a thing or two about selling himself, so he'll be a good fit with the WWE.

The now-retired WWE Hall of Famer, The Undertaker, was one of the constants of the pro-wrestling universe for over three decades. So, when he has something to say, it's always worth listening to what he's got to share. This time, The Undertaker offered his two cents on UFC star, Conor McGregor, and his potential to be part of the WWE.

In an exclusive interview with The Independent, The Undertaker shared that he thinks McGregor is the next major UFC star to join the WWE, saying:

It's pretty easy to figure out, that would have to be Conor McGregor. He has WWE written all over him. He would be the ultimate heel, and that would be kind of fun.

Historically, the WWE has seen UFC stars call it their new home and build a successful career in it. Prominent figures like Ronda Rousey and Brock Lesnar are examples of this. Rousey, who was one of the most dominant fighters in the UFC in her prime, joined the WWE in 2017 and hasn't looked back since. On the other hand, Lesnar started in the WWE before trying out his mettle in the UFC and ultimately coming back to the WWE as The Beast Incarnate.

Other former UFC stars who joined the WWE and were met with much success include Rousey's tag team partner, Shayna Baszlar, and Matt Riddle, who is a former WWE Raw Tag Team Champion.

The Undertaker's words are going to become prophetic once Conor McGregor joins the WWE.

With the merger, there's speculation that the UFC and the WWE will crossover into each other more often than before. But, while both are part of the same industry (and now, company), each has a unique appeal and distinct fanbase. The Undertaker reinforces this, envisioning both companies as growing in parallel with each other.

The Undertaker's love for MMA is no secret. He famously wears MMA gloves as part of his in-ring attire and his Hell's Gate submission hold is inspired by a legit MMA submission movie, the gogoplata.

Given Conor McGregor's larger-than-life persona, coupled with his striking skills, and natural affinity for working the crowd, he's an exciting candidate to transition into the WWE, especially after he called out The Tribal Chief earlier this year.

Conor McGregor still wants to try if he can have a successful comeback inside the Octagon.

Only time will tell if McGregor will swap the Octagon for the squared circle and add a new chapter to his already illustrious career.

If this happens, we'd love to see him feud with someone who can help make him look good in the ring as well.

For now, fans can look forward to watching McGregor make his Hollywood debut in the Road House remake.
