A big WWE name has reacted to UFC legend Conor McGregor, who is never shy about speaking his mind.

Since the news of WWE being bought by Endeavor and merging with UFC was first reported on Sunday leading to the official announcement on Monday, a lot of people have been wondering about the possibility of UFC stars interacting with WWE superstars.

Conor McGregor is arguably the most famous UFC fighter there is although the brash Irishman hasn’t fought since July 2021. The former UFC Lightweight and Featherweight Champion is a massive draw in his sport due to his talents inside the Octagon, but also because of his ability to talk to build up interest in his fights.

On April 2nd, Conor McGregor tweeted a photo of himself holding a UFC and WWE Title with a hashtag saying “#itsinevitable” meaning he believes it’s going to happen some day.

Paul Heyman, who is the Special Counsel and “Wise Man” to WWE’s Roman Reigns, the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, replied to the tweet saying that McGregor is just a Roman Reigns wannabe.

Conor McGregor replied to what Heyman wrote with a unique threat:

“Careful Grampa. I’ll show up and break your jaw in 3 places.”

During an interview with Ariel Helwani of BT Sport, WWE’s Paul Heyman reacted to Conor McGregor’s harsh words.

“I’m not a grandfather, but I appreciate the fact that I’m old enough to be one, number one, and I’m still thriving on top. 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, number two. Number three, it’s not that he tweeted to me, I picked the fight with him.”

“Let’s be honest about this. He, as a Roman Reigns wannabe, did the Paul Heyman style, you know, title on each shoulder, and, you know, gave a shout out to himself, of course he did. You know, the ultimate self promoter in Conor McGregor, you know, standing nine feet tall and weighing 155 pounds and five foot four. So, with that in mind, I said, ‘Look at Conor McGregor, a Roman Reigns wannabe’, and of course, you know, he said, ‘Oh, be careful grandpa. I’ll break your jaw in three places.’”

“My father who was a pretty street savvy guy from the Bronx, you know, my father used to say, ‘If you’re going to hit somebody, you don’t want to go up and go, I’m going to punch you in the face. I’m going to beat you up. I’m going to come get you.’ You know what they do if they want to beat you up? They walk up to you and they hit you.”

“He’s talking a good game but he isn’t coming after The Wise Man, and even if he did come after The Wise Man, what if I landed a lucky shot like the lucky shot he hit Aldo with? (Jose) Aldo clipped him and busted him open on a knockout punch that he threw. What if I had a lucky punch on Conor McGregor? Right? What if I did? If he beats me up, who cares?”

“I’m a 57-year-old Wise Man. I’m a Jew boy from the Bronx. This is a tough fight for Conor McGregor? I don’t see him picking a fight With Roman Reigns, but then again, listen. You know, little people do what little minds tell them to do, and that’s okay, because I like the little guy. He’s funny to me. Like a clown. You know, like a clown. He’s here for my amusement.”
