It doesn’t look like Conor McGregor will be working with the WWE any time soon. The featherweight champ had some not nice things to say about the current and former WWE stars currently working with the UFC.
On an August 5th conference call, to hype his upcoming rematch against Nate Diaz at UFC 202, McGregor dismissed the idea of stepping into a WWE ring.
He also worked in shots at Brock and CM Punk, whose name he said he couldn’t remember:
‘For the most part, those WWE guys are p*ssies, to be honest. They’re messed up p*ssies, if you ask me. Fair play to Brock, 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.’
McGregor did have nice things to say about a couple current and former WWE names. Basically all the guys who make the most money or cut the paychecks.
There’s some dons in that wrestling game. The McMahons, they’re dons. Triple H is a don. The Rock is a don. But the rest of them are p*ssies.
As Cageside Seats points out, this could all be a work on McGregor’s part to build up something in the future or it could just be McGregor being his typical honest self.
Either way…shots fired.
