Triple H Invites Conor McGregor & Floyd Mayweather to Raw

It looks like WWE wants in on “The Biggest Money Fight of All Time”

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past week, you have heard some clips of the ongoing trash talking between UFC Lightweight Champion “The Notorious” Conor McGregor & the greatest pound-for-pound boxer of all time Floyd “Money” Mayweather. #MayMacWorldTour

A few days ago, Triple H took to Twitter; inviting the boxers to have live microphones on Monday Night Raw:

 

In my mind, this happening is a certified ‘no-brainer’ for all parties involved. We’re witnessing the most hype for a boxing match in combat sports history. WWE is a perennial “King of Hype.”

The 49-0 Mayweather has a positive history with WWE. In 2008, Floyd participated in a 2-month long storyline leading to a clash with Big Show at WrestleMania 28. UFC worked with WWE  last year. Brock Lesnar appeared at UFC 200 and dominated, while UFC consistently promoted Brock’s match at SummerSlam.

A stop at a live Monday Night Raw on #MayMacWorldTour just makes sense. Both men are 100% business. They would be able to comply with WWE’s family friendly guidelines without hesitation. WWE is about a week away from a full promotion for SummerSlam.

Drinking my Onnit.com Alpha Brain has helped me think about the possibilities that could happen if Brock Lesnar were to confront McGregor & Mayweather. Could you imagine the electricity in the air?

Speaking of electricity, what if WWE could pitch The Rock coming back to Monday Night Raw to participate in a face-off between Conor & Floyd? John Cena just made his return to WWE. Why not throw Cena into the mix?

Here’s one for you: what if WWE wanted to use Samoa Joe to create another “TYSON & AUSTIN!” moment?

Could anything hold a candle to this? Arguably the greatest moment in Raw history

“McGREGOR & JOE!!! McGREGOR & JOE!!!”

Or what about…

“McGREGOR & REIGNS!!! McGREGOR & REIGNS!!!”

And the list goes on. WWE’s ability to promote fight is legendary. WWE dropped a hint in the article on their website:

“Given that Floyd Mayweather counts a WrestleMania victory among his wins and Enzo Amore has had a few words for McGregor on Twitter, it’s certainly in the realm of possibility.”

Enzo Amore? Really? Think bigger.

In 1976, Vince McMahon Sr. syndicated a fight in Japan between Muhammed AliAntonio Inoki at Shea Stadium in Queens, New York. The WWWF drew 32,897 people for the event. Andre The Giant also took on boxer Chuck Webner & WWWF World Champ Bruno Sammartino wrestled Stan Hansen. They drew approximately $400,000. Big money in 1976.

Today, you’re talking millions of dollars in promotion. If this opportunity does not come to fruition, we can all ask ourselves, “what if?”
