Conor McGregor Branded A “Clown” By WWE Star

Conor McGregor

While Roman Reigns continues to dominate all comers inside WWE, his Special Counsel Paul Heyman has started picking fights with those outside of the company.

After seeing a post of UFC star Conor McGregor online where he posed with WWE and UFC titles, Heyman called him a “Roman Reigns wannabe.” Naturally, McGregor didn’t take kindly to the insult and said he’d break Heyman’s jaw.

However, the social media sparring hasn’t ended there. Speaking in a new interview with Ariel Helwani for BT Sport, Heyman began by breaking down his beef with the former UFC Lightweight and Featherweight Champion.

“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.’”

Heyman went on to call McGregor a “clown” adding that he’s only there for his amusement.

“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.”

Paul Heyman Jokes About CM Punk’s Infamous All Out Media Scrum

After Roman Reigns saw off Cody Rhodes in the main event of Wrestlemania 39, the Tribal Chief and Paul Heyman attended the post-show press conference.

With their portion of the press conference coming to an end the pair were asked by Nick Hausman of Haus of Wrestling about WWE’s new deal with Endeavor.

After Reigns commented that he didn’t know much about the story, Heyman took to the microphone. The Special Counsel got a laugh out of the room including Reigns by quipping that Hausman has a “bad habit of starting problems at press conferences.”

Nick Hausman was famously involved in speaking to CM Punk when he launched into his tirade following All Out.
