Taker is obviously nowhere near as relevant as Conor now because hes a 50 year old whos been a part timer for years, but saying nobody outside of wrestling knows who he is is honestly just ridiculous. I would expect a large percentage of males between like 15 and 40 to be well aware of him.

Rock is probably as big as Conor, nowadays because of his movie career, but even before that around 99-01 he seemed as widely visible and well known as Conor does today, probably more so in fact.

Brock and Conor are fairly comparable. which draws more between a Brock UFC card and a Conor UFC card would just hinge on their opponent and how hyped the fight is. Conor would have more power to draw if he went to the WWE right now though because of the unknown factor of it.

HHH? meh...he was never a big star.

No doubt Conor is red hot right now, and hes a bigger draw than anyone full time in the WWE at this point in time. But its not really fair to compare him to guys that have been famous for 10+ years and in most cases arent at the peak of their popularity/relevance anymore. After all he was just another guy 2 years ago, and wont be anywhere near as famous 5-10 years from now.

Its hilarious how upset wrestling fans want to dismiss Conor entirely and pretend he's some useless bum no one has ever heard of. He's a huge star known globally who was just involved in an epic fight that would have either broken PPV records or come close to it.

Dude, Taker has been a star for 25 years and HHH for 15+ years. After 25 years no one will know who Conor is except for some MMA marks. Globally, The undertaker was more popular in 90s than Conor ever was.

Hogan, Austin and Rock(even before hollywood) at their peak were way bigger stars than Conor.

Bottom line, Stars that WWE has produced over the years are way bigger than UFC stars. UFC is real sport, so when stars like Conor and Ronda suffer a losing streak which they will sometime, they will lose their shine. And they cannot do anything about it. It is impossible for fighters to remain a star for 25 years.

Amazing, is how small he is the only thing these guys can come up with. WWE had freaking Miz a reality tv star main event one of their biggest shows and they're talking shit about Conor who's easily bigger than everyone.

Get this straight. UFC is more mainstream than you, WWE. They outdraw you on ppv. They have a legit drug testing policy that applies to everyone, including the unnatural Brock Lesnar. They are relevant, unlike JBL and the whole of WWE.

Globally?, i have been a wrestling fan all my life, and until Raw and Smackdown aired on open TV in México, the only "real" known wrestlers were Cena and The Rock, probably Hogan years prior.

Dont talk about globally when you probably live on the US, at least here in Mexico its not the case.

No doubt Conor will be popular for some years and then he will fade away, but he is bigger than any wrestler not called The Rock globally

Re: The WWE just took a shot at Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz.

Not sure what the relevance is but if I had to choose between being someone like Nate Diaz or Rusev i'd choose Rusev all the way. WWE entertainers i'm sure get paid and are taking care of a lot better than their UFC counterparts. They have nice salaries don't they?

Nate Diaz before that big McGregor fight was getting $20k per fight and he has been with them for a long time. At 2-3 fights a year that is shit. I make more than that straight out of University but i'm not risking any long term brain injuries.

Joey Styles should enter MMA since he isn't adult sized but knocked JBL the fuck out.

Yeah, Vince needs to cool it with his raging UFC hate (I say Vince, because JBL is just saying lines that Vince feeds him, as awful as JBL is). It's causing them to make really moronic comments and come across so petty and bitter, while essentially denouncing heir own performers. They're making these dumb comments, meanwhile the 4 guys in both title matches don't qualify as a "big" guys, and one of them is an Irish small guy, kind of like Conor.

UFC 202 was an EXCELLENT PPV event. Every fight had an exciting outcome, the personalities were on full display, if you were a casual viewer and you watched both UFC 202 and Summerslam, you're basically laughing about the idea of ever watching WWE again right now. So they can talk their petty shit, UFC absolutely SMASHED them this weekend.
