In an appearance on ESPN's 5ive Rounds podcast with Brett Okamoto and Brian Campbell, Conor McGregor's agent Audie Attar addressed the possibility that we could see McGregor make an appearance at WrestleMania 33.

Predictably, Attar said that they'd be willing to entertain offers from WWE if the financial terms are satisfactory.

"I think it's all about business, man," Attar said. "If they're going to come with an offer, we're willing to entertain it. We're here. So, have their people call his people -- which is me. And we can have a conversation."

Attar said that there haven't been any direct conversations with WWE or Triple H, but noted that they've heard rumors from other media members. Rumors of McGregor eventually appearing in WWE intensified when Triple H appeared at UFC 205 and spoke positively about McGregor in interviews. Dave Meltzer reported after the show that WWE is interested in McGregor making an appearance for the company.

When asked if an appearance would involve getting physical in an actual match, Attar said that would likely be determined by how big the offer is.

Speculation about McGregor appearing in WWE began this summer when he took shots at the WWE roster at the media conference call prior to his rematch against Nate Diaz at UFC 202. Much of the roster reacted negatively to his comments, which likely contributed to McGregor continuing to take occasional shots in the media since.
