WWE champion Drew McInytre has blasted Conor McGregor for calling out Vince McMahon when he “couldn’t drop a guy in a pub.”
The Scottish Psychopath took issue with the former UFC star setting his sights on a switch to wrestling for a match with WWE’s chairman.
Triple H recently joked that his father-in-law Vince could face McGregor for the fight to claim the ‘Billionaire Strut’.
And the Irishman hinted that he may have his sights set on the wrestling ring.
His company, The MacLife, showed a photo of McGregor holding both the WWE Universal Title and his UFC belt.
The 32-year-old shared the image on his own Insta story, tagged Vince’s daughter Stephanie and captioned it with: “McGregor vs McMahon CEO Flashmatch.”
McMahon, 74, largely works behind the scenes in WWE these days and last took a bump on TV from Kevin Owens three years ago.
And the man he once hailed as the ‘Chosen One’ and current face of his company McIntyre rushed to defend him by slamming McGregor’s challenge.
You’re just the latest guy thinking he can have his PR team stick my title on his shoulder & walk into our world. Stick to whiskey McTapper
Drew McIntyre to Conor McGregor
The WWE champ tweeted: “Big man @TheNotoriousMMA picking a fight with ANOTHER 70 year old, you couldn’t drop a guy in a pub, you have no chance against Vince.
“You’re just the latest guy thinking he can have his PR team stick my title on his shoulder & walk into our world. Stick to whiskey McTapper.”
McIntyre’s vicious tweet appeared to be referencing McGregor’s £860 fine after he pleaded guilty to punching an elderly man in a Dublin pub in 2019.
The former two-time UFC king assaulted the man in the March Arch pub where he was promoting his Proper Twelve brand of whiskey.
While McGregor would undoubtedly be a superstar attraction to the WWE roster, McIntyre’s words prove that he probably would not have too many friends inside the locker room.
Back in 2016 he called WWE wrestlers “dweebs” and then described John Cena as “a big fat, 40-year-old failed Mr. Olympia motherf*****”.
Roman Reigns had fired back on that occasion by insisting there is a spot waiting for McGregr in WWE – with the rest of the cruiserweights.
The Big Dog told ESPN Deportes: “We got the best spot on 205 Live.
“He is a cruiserweight, no doubt, and we’ll let him go in there and flip with all those guys.”
