UFC star Conor McGregor calls out WWE champion Roman Reigns and his manager “wannabes”: “I’m gonna suplex Paul Heyman on-site”

One of the most well-known UFC fighters of the last ten years, Conor McGregor, has made some audacious claims regarding WWE champion Roman Reigns and his manager Paul Heyman on social media. The Irishman called out the wrestler and his entourage, saying that he was going to “suplex Paul Heyman on site.” But what does this all mean? Could we see McGregor make his WWE debut at SummerSlam?

The WWE has always drawn some of the biggest names from the realms of boxing and MMA to the squared circle. Fighters like Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury, “Iron” Mike Tyson, Ken “The World’s Most Dangerous Man” Shamrock, and “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey have all competed in matches or signed on as full-time wrestlers. Conor McGregor hasn’t been featured on the broadcast, despite the WWE often mentioning him on social media.

Is Conor McGregor eyeing a WWE debut against the Reigning Roman Reigns?

On Wednesday, McGregor started tweeting about Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman, specifically referencing a rumor about Reigns’ title run. McGregor noted his own accomplishments, mentioning that he had held multiple UFC championships in the past. He also tweeted about his desire to “suplex” Heyman on-site. While it all seemed like playful banter, things got more interesting when McGregor mentioned SummerSlam in his tweets. As Endeavor owns both the WWE and UFC, there is some speculation that McGregor’s tweets could be a way to generate buzz and excitement for a potential crossover.

With roughly 65,000 seats, SummerSlam is a huge event, and McGregor’s appearance would certainly draw a lot of attention. While there is currently no logical challenger for Reigns, a non-title match between McGregor and the wrestler could be a major draw for the show. It seems like the notorious Conor McGregor has his sights set on the squared circle, specifically on WWE champion Roman Reigns and his manager Paul Heyman. McGregor’s tweet about wanting to “suplex” Heyman on site certainly raises some eyebrows, and his mention of SummerSlam has fans wondering if we could see the Mystic Mac make his WWE debut soon.

From the Octagon to the Squared Circle: Will Conor ’The Notorious’ McGregor Face RR at SummerSlam?

Combat sports and professional wrestling have a long history of cross-over events, as we’ve seen, McGregor and his prospective SummerSlam debut might be the newest in that line. Undoubtedly attracting a lot of attention and making for an exciting battle would be the sight of watching McGregor and Reigns square off in the ring. Although McGregor’s tweets may have created some excitement and buzz, it’s still unclear whether he’s actually committed to joining the WWE. It’s tough to predict if McGregor will really enter the squared circle since professional wrestling is so unexpected.

Even while he does consider Reigns and Heyman to be “wannabes,” McGregor clearly has a great deal of respect for them in the interim. The genuine champion may be revealed in a bout with Reigns, or perhaps McGregor’s experience in the UFC will give him the advantage he needs to be successful in the realm of professional wrestling. The realm of combat sports never lacks drama and excitement, and McGregor’s probable involvement in the WWE is only the latest episode in this continuing narrative.
