How Would WWE Book Mayweather vs McGregor?

Former WWE writer Andrew Goldstein has posted a satirical piece over on ESPN.com taking a look at how he thinks WWE would book Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor.

Here is an excerpt from the piece:

As old foes Rocky and Apollo circle each other in a dusty ring in an empty gym, preparing to playfully spar, Creed, with a half-deadly serious, half-tongue-in-cheek twinkle in his eye, says to Balboa: “You got to remember now, you fight great, but I’m a great fighter.” In reality, however, in 2017, when bluster, bravado and trash talk all too often reign supreme over history, facts, common sense, and truth, the upcoming fight between MMA fighter Conor McGregor and boxer Floyd Mayweather is much more than just a guy who fights great versus a great fighter. No, no, no — this fight has all the makings of some good ol’ professional RASSLIN’!
