McGregor vs Lesnar

WWE SummerSlam 2019 is less than two weeks away! Excitement is all over the WWE Universe as fans wait for this event with bated breath. The recent WWE Raw and SmackDown episodes have done a great job of building up to the hype and excitement towards the upcoming PPV event.

Interestingly, a new name that is being associated with the PPV is that of Conor McGregor facing Brock Lesnar.

While the two could never really have a fight in the UFC because of weight divisions, McGregor vs Lesnar might very well be a possibility in the WWE, which anyway likes to pit leaner guys against monsters.

WWE SummerSlam 2019: Will Conor McGregor Debut?

While nothing can be said in any certain terms, Conor McGregor continues to be a UFC superstar. However, a cross-promotional deal is always on the table, and McGregor does what McGregor wants anyway. He appeared in a boxing match against Floyd ‘The Money’ Mayweather, which he lost, so why should WWE-style wrestling be any different for the Irishman?

Furthermore, given that Seth Rollins has been beaten up badly by Brock Lesnar, it appears that there will be someone else who will face ‘the beast’ for the WWE Universal Title, and McGregor appearing to face Lesnar would be interesting.

Will Conor Return to the UFC Instead?

Conor McGregor returning to the UFC is guaranteed. However, he is slated to return in ‘Late 2019’ as per Dana White. Given that there’s still some time, it is possible that he can work a program with Brock Lesnar between SummerSlam and Survivor Series 2019!
