WWE Wrestlers React To Conor McGregor’s Threat

SHARE

UFC featherweight Conor McGregor may have another fight to worry about instead of his UFC 202 contest against Nate Diaz, and it’s with the entire World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) locker room.

In a recent media conference call for UFC 202, McGregor was asked if he would ever consider a career in the industry of professional wrestling, and had this to say:

“For the most part, those WWE guys are p*ssies, to be honest,” McGregor said. “They’re messed up p*ssies, if you ask me. Fair play to Brock [Lesnar], he got in and fought, but at the end of the day he was juiced up to the f*cking eye balls, so how can I respect that? And then what’s the other guy? The other guy hasn’t fought yet, so I don’t know about him yet.”

“There’s some dons in that wrestling game,” McGregor said. “The McMahons, they’re dons. Triple H is a don. The Rock is a don. But the rest of them are p*ssies.”

“I haven’t really thought of that to be honest,” he said. “Again, that’s a little more show business. This is the fight business.”

McGregor would take a lot of heat from WWE fans following his comments, and took to Twitter to apologize in his own special way:

Current and former WWE stars wasted no time to respond to the 145-pound champion on Twitter, you can read their reactions here:
