UFC Fighter Conor McGregor Calls Out John Cena And The WWE
Hot-headed UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor continues to call out the WWE once again, this time specifically targeting wrestler and TV personality John Cena.
MCGREGOR CALLS CENA FAT; WWE A BUNCH OF “DWEEBS”
This is not the first time McGregor has taken shots at World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc., commonly known as the WWE. In his latest statements, McGregor dissed Cena, arguably the WWE’s current biggest star. “What’s the main guy? John Cena. He’s 40. He’s 40 years of age,” McGregor says. “He’s a big, fat, 40-year-old failed Mr. Olympia motherf—-r). They’re dweebs, those guys.”
The feud began when McGregor was asked if he would ever join WWE. Fans and stars of WWE, both current and old, did not take kindly to McGregor’s comments. Retired professional wrestler Ric Flair took to Twitter to take McGregor down a notch and defend fellow WWE wrestlers.
Coming from a guy who built a career copying my persona, I expected the type of class we get from Ronda or Anderson. pic.twitter.com/iVoC0Xva5g

Many other tweeted in support of the WWE as well.
I think McGregor could do well in the featherweight division……if the WWE had one. https://t.co/90XGpSICS9

McGregor went on to compliment former WWE wrestlers, such as Ric Flair, Triple H, The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and WWE owners the McMahon family, making clear his “dweeb” comments only concerned the current top WWE wrestlers. If McGregor ever does join the WWE, he would have a lot of explaining to do.
