WWE Superstars Roman Reigns, Ric Flair react to Conor McGregor's threats

Esther Lin/MMA Fighting

Conor McGregor sure knows how to rile people up and bring attention to himself.

Shortly after the current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Featherweight champion bashed the entire WWE roster by calling them a bunch of "messed up pussies" -- sans the McMahon family, The Rock and Triple H -- and threatened to "slap their heads off," plenty of current and former WWE athletes called the Irishman out.

Check out some of the best reactions courtesy of FOX Sports:

Why Conor is suddenly turning his attention to WWE Superstars is beyond anyone. Unless, of course, he's preparing himself for another career once his cage fighting days come to an end.

"Notorious" is expected to face Nate Diaz for the second time at UFC 202 on Aug., 20, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada in hopes of getting one back on the only man to defeat him inside the Octagon.

A second consecutive loss would be disastrous for the Irishman, who still has his 145-pound belt to fall back on should he choose to remain in the fight game.
