The world of professional wrestling and Mixed Martial Arts appears to have recently crossed over, blurring the lines between two distinct worlds. The biggest name in the fight business – Conor McGregor recently fired shots at the WWE roster.
While attending the pre-fight conference call on the eve of his epic battle with Nate Diaz, The Notorious expressed his thoughts by saying, “For the most part, those WWE guys are p*ssies, to be honest.”
The words of the UFC featherweight champion took the WWE Universe by storm and the outcome was all there to be seen on Social Media. The pro-wrestling fraternity wasted no time in counter-attacking McGregor’s words. McGregor also had an opinion on Brock Lesnar’s recent doping incident when he said, “Fair play to Brock, he got in 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 Beast who dominated the UFC heavyweight division with his massive strength and star power had nothing but stern words to shut Conor down. After a plethora of online jeers by the WWE Superstars, one big name amongst the legends had something to say. Who was it? It was none other than Goldberg himself!
Goldberg sprinkled some reality on his former in-ring foe’s statements. “I can tell you one thing, I was around when Brock responded to Conor and nothing that Brock does is a work. So the words that come out of his mouth, he fully believes and I do also,” Goldberg said.
He continued by saying, “I think that if it wasn’t a work, then it’s a sad situation when you have to talk crap about other organizations that you know your paths are never going to cross competitively. So, at the end of the day, you’re kind of like a keyboard warrior unless you want to step into the guy’s gym or unless you want to do it on TV, you know, meet in the middle. I always thought that was king of cheap, but hey, you know, McGregor doesn’t know what he’s talking about if he actually thinks that. I think that the cross-promotion is brilliant, as long as it doesn’t get hockey for the UFC and as long as WWE can capitalize on the realism of what the UFC brings. It sure enhances Brock’s stock when he walks over to do sports entertainment, I mean, let’s be honest.”
