Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre admitted today (Fri., April 24, 2015) at the UFC 186 Fight Club Q & A (replay here) that he was a massive World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) fan way back when it was still named the WWF.
"Rush" was asked by an excited fan whether or not he would contemplate an offer from WWE brass in order to make a special appearance a la UFC champ Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 31.
His words, via Bleacher Report:
"It would be something I would really enjoy to do if I had the opportunity. I used to be a massive fan of the WWF. I am a massive fan, you know Hulk Hogan. My favorite was Shawn Michaels, Bret "the Hitman" Hart. But now, I am not big enough to make a career out of it. But, to make an appearance or something special, I would love it. Of course, it would be an honor."
Hey Vince McMahon, it is time to get on the phone!
This is of course not the first time the worlds of UFC and WWE have collided. With CM Punk expected to make his Octagon debut later this year, and Ronda Rousey itching for another WWE spot, the promotions' crossover seemingly every month.
Anyone interested in seeing St-Pierre don a speedo and enter the ring?
