Former UFC champion Conor McGregor posted a congratulatory tweet to Becky Lynch for becoming WWE’s first double-champion following her main event victory at Wrestlemania. When a fan responded to the Notorious One with a picture of Chris Jericho holding two-belts, McGregor argued that the WCW title and the WWE title were not unified under a single promotion. Chris Jericho then budded in, claiming that at the time they were unified, and that he won both of them in one night, before calling McGregor a “mark.” See the exchange below.
Congrats to Irelands Becky Lynch, the WWE’s first Champ Champ.
What a match these ladies put on! Ronda Rousey is something special in that ring, as is Charlotte Flair of the Flair dynasty!
Stephanie McMahon you are right, I could not do what these athletes do.
Or could I…

Thanks for the explanation of the rules Champ Champ. But Both belts were won under the same organization, on the same night. Now quit being a mark and move along, junior. https://t.co/2HYkmdAI5i
