Seth Rollins got a nice little treat this week when it was announced he would the cover athlete for the upcoming WWE 2K18 video game, which comes out later this year. As part of that announcement, Rollins appeared on ESPN’s SportsCenter to promote the game. During the interview, Rollins was asked about the Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather fight, which is easily the biggest sports announcement of the year so far. Whether it lives up to the hype or not, well, that’s another story still to be told.
Tag: Conor McGregor
We’re not exactly sure why Conor McGregor is focusing all his attention on WWE the week before UFC 202 instead of his opponent for that evening, Nick Diaz. Maybe in some weird way, this was part of the cross-promotional agreement UFC made with WWE to promote SummerSlam, which will take place the day after McGregor’s fight. Or maybe McGregor is just paving the way for a WWE appearance in the future, possibly after he gets destroyed for fighting outside his weight class again.
