Over the pond in England, Triple H sat down for an extended interview with Sky Sports and made a one-of-a-kind offer to Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, who will go head-to-head in a much-anticipated boxing match on Aug. 26.
"If they want to really showcase what they can do, I'd invite both guys to come to Monday Night Raw because there's no bigger platform that they can have to show the world and tell the world who they are and why they're the man," the WWE COO and head of talent relations said.
Triple H explained that everything -- sports, news, etc. -- is about entertainment these days, and the Mayweather-McGregor fight is no different. "The one thing it will be, beyond a shadow of a doubt, is entertaining," he said.
Mayweather has a history with WWE as he has made three appearances with the company. The first came in February 2008 when he interfered in a match that set up a bout between him and Big Show at WrestleMania XXIV that April. Mayweather's appearance at WrestleMania, for which he was trained by Triple H and booked as the winner, went a long way to WWE reportedly receiving one million pay-per-view buys. He was supposedly paid $20 million for those appearances. Mayweather returned to WWE in August 2009 to host an episode of Raw in Las Vegas.
McGregor does not have any connections to WWE aside from previously claiming he would "," which certainly drew some reactions from wrestlers. Triple H has previously said that he would love for McGregor to compete in WWE when he retires from mixed martial arts, though that is not expected to be anytime soon.
WWE has previously succeeded in working with Ken Shamrock and Brock Lesnar. The company has also been public in its desire to see Ronda Rousey continue her athletic career in the squared circle. Rousey made an appearance at WrestleMania 31 in 2015 to tremendous acclaim.
