Conor McGregor Reveals Why He Wasn't At WrestleMania And Takes Aim At WWE Stars Again

Conor McGregor has taken another jab at the WWE stars, this time during their premier show WrestleMania.

The former UFC champion has been an outspoken fan of WWE for years, with his trademark ‘millionaire strut’ a homage to owner Vince McMahon.

He has also come under fire in the past for comments made in ridicule of the WWE stars, which have not come off too favourably in the WWE locker room.

Well, it seems he’s at it again in the midst of WrestleMania.

During the show of shows, he reshared a video of legend Stone Cold Steve Austin pumping down some beers in typical fashion - with the Irishman clearly enjoying the entertainment. 

He said: “Me at the Black Forge Inn! Arms like Stone Cold, leave a motherf**ker Stone cold. Catch cans not feelings.”

The tweet lead to some questions about why McGregor wasn’t at the show, which fathomed a response you’d come to expect from the UFC fighter.

He tweeted: “Why wasn’t I at Wrestlemania? They all fear me, that’s why.”

Poking the wrestling bear as perusal. 

Fellow Irish star, former Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, who lost her title on WrestleMania Saturday to Bianca Belair, responded to the Notorious one.

She tweeted: “Hey man. I could have used you. Bianca brought an army. Next year?”

It would make quite the appearance if McGregor were to turn up at WrestleMania next year, and could be what WWE needs to outshine this year’s edition, which featured appearances from the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Undertaker, Triple H, and Vince McMahon himself. 

NXT Champion Dolph Ziggler also responded to McGregor, referencing the Irishman’s smaller stature compared to most WWE superstars. 

He said: “bc even I can’t cut down to fly weight.”

Perhaps the superstars won’t have to cut at all to meet the same weight as McGregor, with the MMA fighter putting on some serious weight in recent months. 

McGregor kicked the WWE hornet nest back in 2016 when he gave some unkind opinions on the WWE stars at the media conference before UFC 202.

His ‘apology’ on Twitter didn’t go down too kindly either.

He tweeted: “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.”

The likes of Chris Jericho, Big E, Kurt Angle, and AJ Styles weren't happy at all with the comments.

Meanwhile, Roman Reigns took it another step, tweeting: “Your the size of my leg. Shut up.”

There have been calls for years to have McGregor in the WWE, with his charismatic and athletic nature said to be the perfect formula for Sports Entertainment.

We wouldn’t be too surprised if the UFC star was to turn up at Wrestlemania one day.
