Conor McGregor caused a huge stir a couple of months ago when he hit out at the WWE, and the stars signed to the company.
As we all know by now, a lot of them responded publicly, ranging from Rusev to Roman Reigns, to Brock Lesnar, while others refused to take the bait.
It’s unknown what the Irishman’s true feelings are towards the professional wrestling industry, whether he genuinely feels that way about them all, or whether it was a method of creating controversy to add intrigue into potential business in the future.

That all seems to have cooled down, for now anyway. However, it hasn’t stopped other UFC fighters calling out WWE stars.
There’s been a lot of hype surrounding the Raw Women’s Championship match this Sunday at the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, with Sasha Banks defending her crown against Charlotte Flair, and it’s the first time female athletes are competing inside the cell structure.

So it’s a pretty big deal in the WWE, and UFC bantamweight Cat Zingano is the latest to call out a WWE superstar.
CALLING OUT THE BOSS AND THE QUEEN
Following Banks’ tweet regarding her upcoming title defence at Hell in a Cell, ‘Alpha’ responded with a direct call out to The Boss or The Queen, whoever walks away victorious.
She tweeted: “I’d bleed for it, give me winner if you’re down for some realness. #catfight #alphacatzingano @ufc @wwe”
Unfortunately for Zingano, it feels like her callout has failed miserably, as the 24-year-old champion didn’ts respond.
In fact, Charlotte and no other WWE star has gotten involved yet either, so it looks like they’ve learnt their lesson not to take the bait from UFC fighters.
Although it didn’t seem to catch their attention, there’s a possibility that she could be interested in plying her trade elsewhere, even if it as a special attraction.
The WWE and UFC have done business previously; so it wouldn’t come as a huge surprise.
We saw Ronda Rousey have a great appearance alongside The Rock at WrestleMania 31, while Lesnar went back to the Octagon to defeat Mark Hunt.
The WWE do want Rousey back in some capacity, and a match at The Grandest Stage of Them All had been teased for numerous months, and there were also reports that they were interested in Paige VanZant, again, nothing came to fruition.
But it seems like nobody really cares much about Zingano’s callout, and with little interest, the WWE may not see enough value in her.
And let’s be honest, her catfight hashtag won’t do her any favours either, especially as the current crop of female talent are moving away from that sort of thing.
