UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor is a pure genius when it comes to marketing his brand.
With his recent stab at the WWE wrestlers being “messed up puss–s,” “The Notorious is getting a ton of attention from a single phone call.
Numerous stars from the WWE have responded to McGregor’s comments. Journalist Mike Bohn pointed out that the reactions from the wrestlers have spread to over 14 million twitter users.
Wrestlers who have tweeted about Conor McGregor over the past few hours have more than 14.2 million combined followers. So, yeah, effective.

McGregor is a marketing machine and went even further to rub salt in the wounds of all WWE fans, saying he would “slap the head off” the entire WWE roster.
We have seen Floyd Mayweather and Ronda Rousey jump in the WWE ring to get in on the professional wrestling action. Could all of this be the introduction to Conor McGregor’s entrance into the ring?
Prior to Brock Lesnar fighting at UFC 200, there was a report buzzing around that the WWE granted Lesnar permission to fight in the UFC again so that they could have a chance to get Rousey back in the ring for WrestleMania 33, which takes place in April 2017.
If Rousey didn’t end up working out, could we see Conor McGregor in the WWE ring sometime soon?
