Conor McGregor teases big SummerSlam altercation

Last updated

Conor McGregor is once again talking about Paul Heyman and Roman Reigns.

The former UFC champion has exchanged words with the wise man in the past. He has teased a WWE appearance and the company has also been open to it. The idea has not materialized yet but it seems only a matter of time.

The WWE-Endeavor deal has brought the wrestling company much closer to UFC than ever before. After the announcement last month, people expect the two combat sports promotions to have a lot more crossover in the future.

Conor McGregor targets Paul Heyman

The whole thing picked up steam when Paul Heyman called out the MMA star over some tweets last month. In an interview with Ariel Helwani, Heyman called McGregor a ‘Roman Reigns wannabe’ before talking about his own relevance in the wrestling world:

“I would like to see if Conor McGregor at 57 is still thriving at the very top of his entire industry. We’ll see if he’s even relevant at 57. We’ll see if he even lives to 57 with his lifestyle now.”

McGregor responded to these remarks from Heyman on Twitter earlier yesterday. In a now-deleted tweet he wrote “I’m gonna suplex Paul Hayman on site.”

This wasn’t all as the MMA veteran also targeted the Tribal Chief. In another tweet which has been taken down since, Conor teased a upcoming WWE appearance saying: “Summerslam I’ll pull in on the yacht. Roman and Paul out the bus.”

It’s unknown if WWE actually has any plans involving the UFC star. The two sides however have successfully gotten people talking about a potential altercation with this exchange.
