Conor McGregor drops HUGE WWE hint as he hails WrestleMania star Becky Lynch
Lynch won the 'Winner Take All' women’s title match in the main event of WrestleMania 35 in New York on Sunday night, defeating Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey and SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair.
In doing so, Lynch became the champion of both of the WWE's women's divisions.Also on rt.com #Becky2Belts: Fans react to Becky Lynch's victory in WrestleMania 35 main event
McGregor himself is no stranger to ‘champ champ’ status, having clinched the belt in two divisions in the UFC.
The Notorious was quick to salute Lynch on her achievement, taking to social media, as well as offering another suggestion that he could one day join her in the wrestling ranks.
“Congrats to Irelands Becky Lynch, the WWE’s first Champ Champ,” McGregor tweeted to his 7.6 million followers.
“Wow! What a match these ladies put on! Ronda Rousey is something special in that ring, as is Charlotte Flair of the Flair dynasty!
“Stephanie McMahon you are right, I could not do what these athletes do. Or could I...”

Stephanie McMahon you are right, I could not do what these athletes do.
Or could I...
It’s the final part of that message that will leave fans wondering whether McGregor will bring his very own brand of braggadocio to the world of WWE.
Following his recent announced retirement from MMA – which has since been reversed – McGregor was sent messages calling on him to make the switch, including from Irish WWE star Finn Balor.
"See you in 'mania," Balor had tweeted, replying to McGregor's retirement statement.Also on rt.com 'See you in WWE': Sports world reacts to McGregor's MMA retirement announcement
While McGregor still appears to have plenty of desire to compete in the UFC, his repeated flirting with wrestling suggests he would be more than tempted to test the waters.
And with the likes of Rousey and Brock Lesnar increasingly blurring the lines between the worlds of wrestling and MMA, few would bet against McGregor being a WrestleMania star of the future.
