Drew McIntyre slams Conor McGregor for challenging Vince McMahon
Reigning WWE Champion, Drew McIntyre did not take kindly to McGregor’s insinuation that he could simply walk in and become the WWE Champion. He brutally responded to the ‘Notorious’ challenge for Vince.
‘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,’ McIntyre wrote. ‘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’

This isn’t the first time McIntyre has called out a mixed martial artist. In an interview with ESPN’s Arda Ocal, he had a few choice words for Colby Covington. In response to Covington claiming it was his desire to ‘make wrestling real again’, McIntyre said:
“I’ll smash his head in, I’ll shut him up. I’ll break his jaw like [Kamaru] Usman did, and then more people watch WWE. So, Colby, I’ll fight you. No title shot, though. That’s reserved for the WWE Superstars.”
Conor himself has a history with the WWE. Back in 2016, he slandered the entire industry and called all WWE Superstars dweebs. He went so far as to label John Cena as ‘a big fat, 40-year-old failed Mr. Olympia motherf*****’.
