140 Characters or Less: Notorious

Playing into the heel persona he’s cultivated in the UFC, Conor McGregor has drawn the ire of another group of athletes this weekend: professional wrestlers.

During a media call for UFC 202, after being asked about if there was any interest in a future in the squared circle, McGregor spoke with harsh words.

“I have thought about it. For the most part, I think these guys are p*ssies, to be honest. 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 eyeballs. How can I respect that? The other guy (CM Punk) hasn’t fought yet, so I don’t know about him yet. There’s some Dons in that wrestling game. The McMahons are Dons. Triple H is a Don. The Rock is a Don. But the rest of them are p*ssies. I haven’t thought about that, to be honest. It’s a little more show business and this is the fight business.”

The UFC Featherweight Champion then doubled down on his comments on his Twitter.

Naturally when their profession is given the badmouth, Wrestlers from WWE and outside the company aren’t shy in sticking up for their genre of entertainment.  The responses range from offended to hilarious.  

Let’s give the final word on the matter, to the favorite wrestler of the Seven Deities.
