Conor McGregor clearly rubbed a few WWE Superstars the wrong way when he referred to them as “messed up pu—-s,” prompting some of the offended to issue a response.

“For the most part, those WWE guys are p—–s, to be honest,” McGregor said during a media conference call Friday. “They’re messed up p—–s, if you ask me. Fair play to Brock [Lesnar], he got in and fought, but at the end of the day he was juiced up to the f—–g eye balls, so how can I respect that? And then what’s the other guy? The other guy hasn’t fought yet, so I don’t know about him yet.”

McGregor later clarified his comment somewhat, specifying the direction of his disrespect.

“I didn’t mean no disrespect to the [WWE] fans,” McGregor wrote on Twitter. What I meant to say was that I’d slap the head off your entire roster. And twice on Sundays.”

Reigns is billed at 6-foot-3 and 265 pounds, while McGregor is 5-foot-9 and often competes at 145 pounds.

McGregor was once rumored to be appearing at WrestleMania 32 in April, though he quieted those rumors during the event. An appearance in the WWE would have followed in the footsteps of Ronda Rousey, who appeared at WrestleMania 31 the year prior.

While the Irishman is not a fan of the pro wrestling industry, he admits there are some real big players involved – some who are exempt of his initial remark.

“There’s some dons in that wrestling game,” McGregor said. “The McMahons, they’re dons. Triple H is a don. The Rock is a don. But the rest of them are p—–s.”
