5 Times Conor McGregor trolled WWE
Conor McGregor keeps trolling the WWE roster and several naive WWE Superstars take the bait.
After Ronda Rousey’s downfall and the exile of Jon Jones, the stars aligned for Conor McGregor’s rise to stardom making him the UFC’s (Ultimate Fighting Championship) biggest Pay-Per-View draw and MMA’s (Mixed Martial Arts) biggest star. Not one to shy away from controversy and the spotlight, McGregor is considered by many to be a master in the art of self-promotion.
Whether it’s MMA, boxing, pro-wrestling or even horse-riding, any place that has the dough attracts ‘Notorious’. The former UFC Featherweight champion and current UFC Lightweight King has trash-talked virtually every fighter, every fan and every person on the planet oft referring to himself as a God.
Dating back to his 2014 online war against ‘The Celtic Warrior’ Sheamus, the UFC’s golden boy has directed his unique brand of outlandish and at times, downright absurd trash talk towards the WWE and the pro-wrestling industry. Often called out by many big names including ex-WWE stars as well as current performers, the UFC champion never ceases to amaze the fans with his dedicated troll-agenda against the WWE. Today we look back at the McGregor vs WWE saga-

Back in 2014, Conor McGregor was asked by Sports Illustrated who’d win a fight between him and Irish WWE Superstar Sheamus, in response to which McGregor promised to whoop his ass, stating that a fight between him and the WWE wrestler wouldn’t even be a worthy contest. SI also posed the same question to the magazine’s readers on social media. Never one to back down from a fight, Sheamus who was on an injury hiatus from the squared circle at the time, fired back at Conor, sparking off a full-blown Twitter war.
In the end, McGregor and Sheamus agreed to fight one another, toast a whisky in Dublin and then fight everyone else as well. The fighting Irish eh Fella? That brings us to McGregor’s master-stroke...
