Former WWE Champion CM Punk is not one to shy away from feuds or a war of words, and he's finally had his say on the Conor McGregor vs the WWE roster situation.
McGregor sent social media into yet another frenzy when he openly spoke about the WWE and the wrestlers that are part of the company.
The loudmouthed UFC star was quick to praise certain individuals within the company, but he was less than complimentary about the rest.

Bar Triple H, The Rock, and the McMahon family, McGregor had nothing positive to say about the rest of the WWE roster, claiming he'd slap the heads off the entire roster. This coming after initially calling them all 'f*****g p*****s'.
The likes of Roman Reigns, Rusev, Big E, Sasha Banks, Ric Flair, and Kurt Angle all responded to McGregor's comments, with the majority of them hitting back at the Irishman.
However, former WWE wrestler and now UFC fighter CM Punk has weighed in on the situation and has revealed how his former colleagues have all been worked by McGregor.
During an interview with Hot 97 FM, Punk gave his thoughts on the entire saga and he revealed his shock at how many of the WWE roster actually bit back at McGregor.
He said: “I think the thing that shocked me the most about what Conor said was the number of people who work there who responded to him, who should know better … they got worked.
“Ric Flair, c’mon. Just stop. Just knock it off.”
Punk later said it's embarrassing for anyone to fight on Twitter, so he wasn't directly blaming the WWE roster, but he believes the best way to go about it is to just take the high road and ignore all the comments.
CM Punk is yet to make his UFC debut, but that date is coming around as he will face Mickey Gall at UFC 203 in September.
