Triple H couldn’t help himself from jumping into the social media fun that Conor McGregor was having with his fellow Irishman NXT Champion Finn Balor.

It all started after Balor posted action figures of McGregor and himself standing inside the ring with their respective belts. The former double Ultimate Fighting Championship titleholder is seen with Triple H standing behind him. Whether it’s a match between the two Irish athletes or the duo could wind up tagging together, it’s clear that they both have a healthy respect for each other.
McGregor would later reply to Balor saying, “No more Mr. Nice Guy!” which led to Triple H joining in.
Just say when. https://t.co/9ppqM2DKbD

McGregor has also regularly interacted with Becky Lynch on social media and has shown an appreciation for Irish wrestlers. He’s coming off a loss to Dustin Poirier, although the two are expected to have a rematch (potentially with gold on the line as lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov retired).
