Paul Heyman feels that Conor McGregor is a Roman Reigns wannabe. Heyman was reacting to a tweet from Conor McGregor today and noted that the former UFC champion is just someone who wants to be like WWE champion Roman Reigns.
“. @TheNotoriousMMA is a @WWERomanReigns wannabe!!” Heyman tweeted from his Twitter account.
Conor McGregor had posted a picture of him holding the WWE championship belt and the UFC title belt on his shoulder tagging the WWE and the UFC. He also used the hashtag which noted it’s inevitable.
This is apparently after the reports of UFC parent company Endeavour planning to buy WWE.
Interestingly, this is not the first time that the names of Roman Reigns and Conor McGregor have been used in one line.
Sometime back, Conor McGregor had noted that he would take out the entire WWE roster and was met with immediate backlash from Roman Reigns. Reigns noted that Conor McGregor is just the size of his leg and that the former champion should shut up.
The rise of Roman Reigns
Over the years, Roman Reigns has established himself as one of the most valuable names in the WWE roster. He is heading into WrestleMania as the WWE and WWE Universal champion and was the Best Box Office Draw of 2022 as per WON. He also won the Best Wrestler of the Year 2022 from ESPN As well.
The storyline featuring Roman Reigns was also chosen as the Best Storyline of 2022.
Conor McGregor, on the other hand, is expected to make his UFC return soon after being out for more than a year due to injury.
The Irish icon returned as a coach on the new season of The Ultimate Fighter and could be on his way to fight Michael Chandler next.
