Enzo Amore is apparently not a fan of Conor McGregor. Amore took to Twitter to rip on McGregor and said that he would knock him out if Floyd Mayweather doesn’t.
Amore said, “@TheNotoriousMMA, you talk s*** and Floyd is going to knock it out of you. And if he doesn’t, I will.”

It’s not clear what Amore’s beef is with McGregor but it could have something to do with McGregor’s past statements about members of the WWE roster. Back in January, McGregor ripped on UFC, boxing, and WWE after announcing that his Q & A sold out. He wrote, “I’m so made! Heading to do a Q and A in front of 5000 fans! You read that right. That’s more than UFC attendance tonight.” He added, “F**k Floyd. F**k boxing. F**k the WWE. F**k Hollywood. And f**k you too pay me.”
Last August, he ripped on John Cena and the current roster while praising Vince McMahon, Triple H, The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin. Several of the current wrestlers on the roster (and Ric Flair) responded but I think most people realized that he was talking trash in an effort to drum up more publicity for his fight with Nate Diaz.
McGregor have had talks in the past but, at this point, I don’t think WWE would be willing to match his price tag just for a WrestleMania appearance. The terms of his deal to fight Mayweather have not been disclosed but he will likely make more money on that fight than all of his previous and future MMA fights combined.
