WWE wrestlers past and present have dutifully provided the Crumlin native with the publicity he was after - with legends like Ric Flair lining up on Twitter just to assure him that there are many on the WWE roster who could beat him up.

Flair also argued that professional wrestlers like Dolph Ziggler and Brock Lesnar "could tie Conor in a knot."

Even Conor McGregor's compatriot Sheamus couldn't resist slamming McGregor for his disrespectful comments about the WWE.

McGregor takes on Diaz at the upcoming UFC202, but after this back-and-forth, it's hard to see how the Dublin man can avoid combat with at least one of the WWE's Superstars.
