Appearing on Good Day New York (h/t Corey Jacobs of WrestlingNews.co), White said he texted WWE Chairman Vince McMahon before the show, and McMahon responded, "News to me," regarding the rumors.
White said McMahon also texted, "It might be good someday but not now," in reference to McGregor making a WWE appearance.
On Wednesday, Adam Higgins of the UK Sun reported that McGregor was "close" to a deal with WWE to appear and potentially wrestle at WrestleMania 34.
There is already a history of crossover between UFC and WWE, as Ronda Rousey appeared at WrestleMania 31 and got physical as she and The Rock took out Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
The fact that there appears to be some type of working relationship between WWE and UFC bodes well for a potential McGregor appearance in WWE down the road, but UFC needs its biggest draw back in the Octagon after his decision to dabble in boxing.
