CM Punk after his defeat.

WWE seemingly poke fun out of CM Punk's UFC debut at Backlash

Published 55 Comments

We all know that CM Punk and WWE parted ways on frosty terms, but it's clearly something that the latter hasn't forgotten about.

Of course, this could just be a complete coincidence, but knowing what WWE are like, and knowing how much Triple H and Vince McMahon don't like superstars leaving the company, it seems like they poked fun at CM Punk's UFC debut during WWE Backlash.

Punk stepped foot inside the octagon for the first time on Saturday, but his debut was over in the first round after he tapped out to Mickey Gall after he took the former wrestler down immediately and put him in a rear-naked choke.

Punk had no option but to tap out, ending his UFC debut a lot quicker than he had hoped.

Despite the poor showing on his behalf, the former WWE Champion admitted that it was the second best night of his life, behind the day he married his wife, and he also revealed his desire to step foot back in the octagon when he's ready.

Punk was clearly emotional following the fight, as he teared up during the post-match press conference when he was talking about his wife and his defeat.

However, WWE have seemingly poked fun at their former employee and have done so by recreating Punk's defeat in one of their own matches.

As mentioned earlier, this could be completely coincidental, but on the other hand, it could just be a massive shot at Punk.

At the start of the Dolph Ziggler/Miz match, the Intercontinental Champion ran straight at his opponent, before he got taken down, punched in the head, and put in a rear-naked choke.

Sound familiar?

Not very classy by the WWE, but it's something we probably should have expected.
