Conan O'Brien stepped up his trash talking game while playing The Witcher 3 with former superstar AJ Mendez Brooks.

The wrestler turned author stopped by Stream CoCo Live to chat about her New York Times best-selling memoir Crazy Is My Superpower while playing the action RPG with Clueless Gamer's Aaron Bleyaert. Brooks offered some insight into her new book, which details how she overcame a rough childhood to become a star of the WWE ring.

Brooks admitted that writing about growing up in poverty with a family afflicted by mental illness was one of the toughest things that she's ever done.

"It's the hardest thing I've ever done in my life," Brooks said. "We sort of wanted it to be the most formative moments of my life."

Eventually, O'Brien popped into the stream to say hello, as well as throw some shade at champion . The late-night host said that he felt like he could take the champ in a fight after spending some quality time with him.

"When you're in the same space as Conor McGregor, you see that I am a large man, I look at him and I think, 'I could rip your head off,'" O'Brien said. "He's much smaller than me and he's much lighter than me, and I just keep thinking I want to go for it, I think I could take him - which would be a mistake."

O'Brien also tried stirring the pot with Brooks over her wrestler turned mixed martial artist husband .

"How fast would a fight between me and your husband last?" O'Brien asked. "He is an amazing athlete."

The comic went on to ask Brooks about when she knew he was the right person for her.

"After our first kiss I threw him through a table ten feet through the air," she jokingly replied. "It was on television."

Brooks added that if a fight did ever break out between CM Punk and O'Brien, she'd likely step in.

"I'd probably just find a way to beat both of you up," Brooks said.
