Cena: McGregor promotes better than anyone else
Cena says professional wrestlers are the greatest salesmen (and women) in the world but the boxing match between McGregor and Mayweather may have been even better promoted. Cena says McGregor was so good at convincing combat sports fans to shell out $100 for his “Money” bout, that similar tactics in pro wrestling would put everyone else out of business.
He would do fantastic. Hell, he would put me out of work. He gets the entertainment aspect of sport, and I think he gets it as good, or better, than anyone else. The way he promoted the fight against Mayweather… that’s what we do. He did it as good, or better, than us.
Calls Cena ‘a fat, failed Mr Olympia’
At a gym day to promote UFC 202, McGregor expands on his comments about WWE wrestlers, particularly calling out Cena.
What’s the main guy? John Cena. He’s 40. He’s 40 years of age. He’s walking around in a luminous orange t-shirt and a headband talking about nobody can see him. We can see him right there. He’s a big fat, 40-year-old failed Mr. Olympia mother f*cker…Ric Flair’s a legend but as far as gimmicks, this is the real thing over here. I think these WWE guys, they’re not right in the head some of them. I mean the new guys are dweebs, let’s be honest, absolute dweebs but the old school guys are legends…I don’t know what to say to Ric Flair. This ain’t no gimmick, this is the real shit. I’ve got to get in there and fight a man for real. With no script, with no nothing.
Like I said, no disrespect to the dons of the game, the McMahons, [WWE CEO Vince McMahon] is a f*cking legend. They wrote Vinny off a few years ago when he dropped from the billions and then he rose back up and now he’s back in the billionaire club. What he’s been able to do with that bunch of dweebs he has over there at the moment has been phenomenal and I respect him for that. And then of course the OGs of the game, The Rock, Stone Cold, they’re cool mother f*ckers. Even Ric Flair is a cool mother f*cker…I’m just speaking the truth. That new age of those guys are absolute dweebs. They just seem messed up in the head. I don’t know what it is. When I listen to them talk, when I listen to them carry themselves, they just don”t seem right in the head. That might have been a bit rudeness for me to say, but again: It ain’t trash talk, it’s truth talk.
