Retired MMA legend Georges St-Pierre recently gave a French lagnuage interview to TV Sports. St-Pierre said the WWE approached him shortly after he announced his retirement.
“I was at an ESPN event in the United States, the awards ceremony, and I got approached by the WWE,” St-Pierre said in an interview with Jean-Charles Lajoie on TVA Sports. “I had just retired, and, it’s a form of competition, but of course, it’s also scripted, so I don’t know if I’d be willing to relive that. Perhaps for a special event, so I could taste it. But I don’t know if I’d 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 don’t know, but for the moment, there are no discussions at all. They wanted to contact my agents, I gave them their number, but I don’t want to switch to wrestling full-time.”
