WWE Champion CM Punk will be a part of the live FOX UFC Broadcast in his hometown of Chicago just one night before the Royal Rumble PPV.
Punk will be escorting UFC fighter Chael Sonnen to the octagon just before Sonnen squares off against Mark Munoz.
This is a pretty huge mainstream get for WWE, as Punk’s timely appearance on free TV could really help increase awareness of the Royal Rumble PPV. Even without that, Punk being aligned with UFC and Sonnen in Chicago will certainly increase his national exposure with the very casual wrestling fan and/or non-WWE viewer.
