Sam Roberts, host of the popular wrestling podcast “Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast” recently got to interview “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar with his advocate Paul Heyman at the WWE 2K17 video game event which was a part of the massive SummerSlam fan experience. When Roberts asked Lesnar about Conor McGregor’s recent tweets against the WWE Superstars and the WWE fans, Lesnar said the following

“I take [expletives] bigger than that kid. Come on. I know you kids all play [expletive] video games and you live in this false sense of reality and [expletive]. I’m two hundred and [expletive] ninety pounds. This guys a hundred and forty-five pounds, and that’s if he’s lucky, gets up and eats his [expletive] Wheaties.

If Conor McGregor wants to say some [expletive] to me, and get his name out there more than he already has, by dropping my name, I got [expletive] about ten words for him. Come here, face-to-face, and say it to my face. Otherwise leave me and the [expletive] WWE out of it, because I came to your arena and kicked ass. Now, if you want, and if you’re so [expletive] tough, come to our arena and try and kick some ass.”

To all those people who have no idea about this whole Conor McGregor issue is that Conor McGregor during a telephonic interview to promote his UFC 202 fight with Nate Diaz, made some comments directed towards the entire WWE roster and Brock Lesnar’s reported drug abuse a few days after the match

I haven't really thought about it. For the most part, those WWE guys are (expletive). To be honest, they're messed up (expletive) if you ask me. Fair play to Brock, he got in a fight but at the end of the day he's juiced up to the (expletive) eyeballs so how can I respect that?

Looking at these hurtful comments directed towards their heroes, the WWE fans went ballistic after McGregor by showering him with threats and abuses. McGregor being McGregor sent out a tweet regarding this.

Even the WWE Superstars didn’t hesitate to react to McGregor’s tweet towards the fans,

McGregor not showing any intention to back down also took a shot at the biggest superstar in the WWE, John Cena

“What's the main guy? John Cena? He's 40 years of age walking around in a luminous orange t-shirt and headband talking about no one can see him. You can see him right there — he's a big fat 40 year old failed Mr. Olympian (expletive). Do you know what I mean? They're dweebs those guys.”

Well that’s just Conor McGregor trying to sell his match nothing else, and Brock’s comments will probably put this entire thing to rest now. McGregor is set to go off against Nate Diaz tomorrow at UFC 202, while Brock Lesnar will be facing “The Viper” Randy Orton at SummerSlam. 

Will Conor McGregor emerge victorious against Nate Diaz? Will Brock Lesnar win against Randy Orton? Please tell us your thoughts by writing them in the comments below.
