It was noted the deal could be announced as early as tomorrow (Monday, April 3).

With big implications for the future of WWE, many have taken to social media to react to the report.

Conor McGregor has now shared an edit of himself holding both the WWE Championship, and UFC gold.

Congrats to the @ufc now worth a cool Proper $12bn. Wow! Endeavor bout to scoop the @WWE now also. Incredible. What a powerhouse!
