WWE legend Triple H wants UFC lightweight champion, Conor McGregor to become a professional wrestling star.

McGregor earlier in November beat Eddie Alvarez become the first to hold two Ultimate Fighting Championship titles at the same time.

The 28-year-old is the star of the UFC and has been linked with an expensive move into professional wrestling.

Nine times WWE champions Triple H believes Mcgregor will be hugely successful in professional wrestling if he makes the move.

“He could come over, he's got it all, man – he's got the personality, the skills, the talk,” H said.

“He's an entertainer, for sure. What does he walk around at? 180lbs? I have smaller guys now in the WWE. We have 200lb guys who are stars. You don't need to be 300lbs anymore."

McGregor does not seem to be a fan of the scripted format of the WWE.

“This ain't no gimmick. This is the real s**t,” he said earlier in 2016.

“I've gotta get in and fight a man for real. With no script, with no nothing.”
