Is Conor McGregor's Retirement Legitimate?, Dana White Reacts, Finn Balor Invites McGregor To WrestleMania

Conor McGregor
Following the announcement of Conor McGregor's retirement, several WWE Superstars reacted to the news, including Finn Balor and RAW Women's Champion Ronda Rousey.

McGregor has been rumored to work with WWE in the past, and now there's obvious speculation and fan chatter on McGregor possibly appearing for WWE in the future if he really is retired.

Balor, who will challenge WWE Intercontinental Champion Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania 35, made an interesting reply to Conor's retirement tweet and said he will see his fellow Irishman at WWE's biggest show of the year.

Rousey, who offered to buy a round of drinks for Conor, also spoke about his retirement during her morning appearance on ESPN SportsCenter to promote the WrestleMania 35 main event.

Rousey said, "Well, it's a creative way to retire and it was a cryptic way to retire. So, we'll see how permanent it is. If he wants to retire forever he's more than earned it. ... And like I said, I'm ready to buy that second round."

McGregor’s retirement announcement is drawing some skepticism because he retired back in April 2016 and many saw it as a negotiating ploy. That could be the case this time around.

UFC President Dana White says he believes the announcement is legitimate. “He has the money to retire, and his [Proper 12] whiskey is KILLIN it,” White told ESPN. “It totally makes sense. If I was him, I would retire too. He’s retiring from fighting. Not from working. The whiskey will keep him busy, and I’m sure he has other things he’s working on.”

White went on to say that he’s happy for McGregor and he looks forward to seeing what he does outside of the Octagon.
