Conor McGregor Shares His Thoughts On WWE Roster

For as long as I have been a fan of wrestling, I have also been told by others that it’s fake. That the winners were all chosen beforehand, and that nobody was in any actual danger. That second part always confused the hell out of me. I get picking the winners before and all that, but even if it doesn’t always look like they’re hitting each other, every match features at least a moment where someone hits something.

That mat must be a giant pillow. Those chairs must be made out of styrofoam. SO CONFUSED!

Obviously, when I reached a certain age, I realized it was all about the performers. Look at guys like Stan Hansen and Big Van Vader. Those big mamma jammas laid their shit in. They weren’t easy with you, unless you were Shawn Michaels, and you threw a hall of fame hissy over the matter. Look at the one match Hansen and Vader had where Vader’s eye pops out of its socket. He pushed it back in and finished the match, taking more punishment in the process.

Picking a couple modern performers: Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. Did you see their match at Battleground? I don’t give a damn who you are, that Brainbuster KO took on the apron definitely hurt. There was nothing fake about that pain, trust me. There are still guys in the current landscape of professional wrestling that make their matches look legit. Shinsuke Nakamura is another example.

Ever see Ishii or Shibata go at it? Either separately, or against each other? It’s brutal.

Anyway, I brought all this up to add in my two cents before we got to the flashy Conor McGregor stuff. During the media call for UFC 202, The Notorious One was asked if he saw a potential future in the world of professional wrestling:

“You know, I haven’t really thought about it. For the most part, those WWE guys are pussies, to be honest. They’re messed up pussies if you ask me. I mean, fair play to Brock (Lesnar); he got in and fought, but at the end of the day, he was juiced up to the fuckin’ eyeballs. How can I respect that? The other guy (CM Punk) hasn’t fought yet, so I don’t know about him yet.”

He continued on:

“There’s some Dons in that wrestling game. I mean, the McMahons, they’re Dons. Triple H is a Don. The Rock is a Don. But the rest of them are fuckin’ – the rest of them are pussies, man. I don’t know, I mean – I haven’t thought about that, to be honest. Again, that’s a little bit more show business. This is the fight business.”

These harsh words must have kicked up a storm online, prompting McGregor to take to his Twitter account:

As expected, this didn’t sit very well with some of the past and present WWE roster:

NOTE: Fans must have pointed out Roman’s lapse in grammar, as he followed up with this Tweet.

Shake your head all you want, Roman, the difference between your and you’re is pretty basic stuff. We’re talking grade school.

Back to it. MVP came firing in hot:

From whoever runs Ric Flair’s Twitter account:

It’s more than wrestlers, though. A lot of WWE fans had something to say in regards to McGregor’s Tweet:

All of this means nothing, though, because Sheamus fired out with a true killing blow:

This sort of stuff happens every time someone involved with UFC says anything about WWE. It’s always entertaining. The other side was too. If you look through the responses to McGregor, you’ll see a lot of people coming to his defense.

Where do you guys stand on this subject? Think Conor could legitimately slap the heads off the whole roster, and twice on Sunday? Don’t get me wrong, I think he could go through a lot of them without a problem, but as the fans and I have pointed out, there’s plenty of men in WWE who would give him some trouble.

I would genuinely love to see him take on guys like Sheamus, Nakamura, Rusev, Brock, Big E, Braun Strowman, etc.
