Balor captioned the post as “Triple H x @TheNotoriousMMA (McGregor) x Bálor”. However, it is unclear whether the former double Ultimate Fighting Champion and NXT Champion hinted at a match against each other or together.

There is no news or even rumors of McGregor leaving UFC for WWE, as his peers Brock Lesnar and Ronda Rousey did before. But McGregor regularly interacts with Becky Lynch and appreciates Irishmen in the business.

His interactions with WWE started way back in 2016 when he called WWE wrestlers “p*ssies,” in a press meet. He said, “I haven’t really thought about it. For the most part, those WWE guys are p*ssies. To be honest, they’re messed up p*ssies if you ask me.”

However, he had appreciated The Rock, Vince McMahon, and Triple H.

“There are some dons in that wrestling game. The McMahons, they’re dons. Triple H is a don. The Rock is a don. The rest of them are p*ssies.”
