Over the weekend, former WWE superstar Phil “CM Punk” Brooks unsuccessfully made his mixed martial arts debut at UFC 203 in Cleveland.
Within seconds of the opening bell, Punk was easily taken to the ground by Mickey Gall before being on the receiving end of some ground-and-pound before being submitted with a rear-naked choke.
It was a lopsided loss for Punk and it appears as though his former employers threw some shade his way at the first opportunity which was Sunday night’s pay-per-view, WWE Backlash.
During a match between The Miz and Dolph Ziggler, the WWE took the opportunity to re-enact Punk’s loss. One WWE fan with incredible attention to detail noticed the moment.
If you don’t believe, just watch the video below which should appear eerily similar to anyone who watched UFC 203:
Well played, WWE. Well played.
