Ex-UFC star says he was approached by WWE Submitted by Aaron Rift on 06/02/2019 at 08:10 AM
Former two-division UFC champion Georges St-Pierre stated in an interview with TVA Sports that WWE approached him about joining the company:
"I was at an ESPN event in the United States, the awards ceremony, and I got approached by the WWE,Ē St-Pierre said in an interview with Jean-Charles Lajoie on TVA Sports. ďI had just retired, and, itís a form of competition, but of course, itís also scripted, so I donít know if Iíd be willing to relive that. Perhaps for a special event, so I could taste it. But I donít know if Iíd want to sign a contract and do it every week and making it a living. Maybe for a special appearance."
"Perhaps we will get back to them on that, I donít know, but for the moment, there are no discussions at all. They wanted to contact my agents, I gave them their number, but I donít want to switch to wrestling full-time."
