Seth Rollins Laughs Off ‘Cruiserweight’ Conor McGregor’s Comments And Basically Calls Him An Adorable Little Fella

This week, Conor McGregor has a non-title fight against Nick Diaz at UFC 202. He’s been preparing for the match-up by shit talking the WWE and their employees for about two weeks.

WWE Superstars came back at the fighter and the beef cooled for a little while.

Allow ESPN to pour gas on the fire and reignite the beef until everybody gets burned.

Former WWE World Champion Seth Rollins was a guest on Sportscenter. He’s also got a big match this weekend at Summerslam, facing off against Finn Balor for the brand new WWE Universal Title.

Rollins was asked about McGregor and the former champ sized up the possibly competition. “Sized up” being the key.

If he was serious about it, guy’s 5’6”, 145 or whatever he walks around at, I don’t know, but you can see me here, I’m a full-size human being, so if he wants to come around and try to slap the face off me or whatever insult he’s got for the day, by all means, come step into our ring and see what you got.

Wow. He just knelt down and hit McGregor below the belt.

Rollins did add that McGregor would make a good addition to the roster.

I think he’d make a fantastic cruiserweight. You know we’ve got a new cruiserweight division coming to Raw were the guys have to be 205 pounds or less, so he could fit right into there. If he wants to come into the ring with the heavyweights, he might need to eat some pizzas and drink a few more gallons of milk.


Considered the beef back on the grill.
