• Does John Cena Want To See Conor McGregor Wrestle In WWE After The Disrespect Shown In 2016?
During a recent interview with’That Scene’, WWE Legend John Cena was asked how former UFC Two Division Champion Conor McGregor would do in WWE.
Here’s what the 16-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion said:
“He’d be fantastic. He is what we do. It’s a little less predictable. Our surprises are getting people to show up at random and weave the ‘choose your own adventure’ into a different alley.
His surprises are getting a few teeth knocked out or getting an operation. Not to say that this doesn’t happen with us, mistakes happen, but in his profession it’s not a mistake. I hope (he makes an appearance) because I want to see it.
At my core, I’m a fan. He’s interesting and has a gravity about him. I want to see him perform.”
McGregor has a 22-6 record in Mixed-Martial-Arts, but is pretty much past his prime in UFC these days after losing both of his fights in 2021 against Dustin Poirier.
Back in 2016, while promoting his second fight against Nate Diaz, McGregor disrespected WWE wrestlers, including Cena.
Here’s what McGregor said:
“I think these WWE guys, they’re not right in the head some of them. I mean the new guys are dweebs, let’s be honest, absolute dweebs but the old school guys are legends. Ric Flair is a legend. The McMahons of course – Dons. But I just say it as it is – they’re dweebs.
What’s the main guy? John Cena? He’s 40 years of age walking around in a luminous orange t-shirt and headband talking about no one can see him.
You can see him right there – he’s a big, fat 40-year-old failed Mr Olympian motherf**ker. Do you know what I mean? They’re dweebs those guys.”
