It was the past week when the UFC champion, Connor McGregor has taken a shot to the almost entire WWE roster and passed insulting comments towards them. During a press conference, McGregor was asked whether he would love to promote a WWE match, much like what WWE did during the UFC 200 mega-match between Brock Lesnar and Mark Hunt. The reply came as:
“I haven’t really thought about it. For the most part, those WWE guys are p*ssies. To be honest, they’re messed up p*ssies if you ask me.”
Taking a shot to the beast, Brock Lesnar he added, “I mean fair play to Brock (Lesnar), he got in there and fought but, at the end of the day, he was juiced up to the f**king eyeballs so how can I respect that?”
The insult continued as he quoted, “There are some dons in that wrestling game. The McMahons, they’re dons. Triple H is a don. The Rock is a don. The rest of them are p*ssies.”
What was even more surprising, the UFC champion had not heard about CM Punk who is going to debut in the promotion at the UFC 203 PPV.
Now, with that being said a number of WWE Superstars hit him back with their own comments on Twitter.
Never heard of him. https://t.co/uYFFbp25bK

Now these firings came after Connor realized his mistake and intended to address his mistake. Is it going to be part of any big storyline? Only, time will tell.
I didn’t mean no disrespect to the @wwe fans. What I meant to say was that I’d slap the head off your entire roster. And twice on Sunday’s.
