WWE Champion blasts Nike's signing of Jon Jones

source: bleacherreport.com
 

While we cant confirm CM Punk was referring to Jones specifically in his tweet, Jones is the only high-profile athlete that both recently got a DWI and major endorsement deal.

@CMPunk: Let's reward more drunk drivers with endorsement deals! #responsibility

If this tweet is indeed about the UFC champion, this isn’t another shot from the WWE hurled at the UFC like we saw a few weeks ago with Vince McMahon. This is CM Punk taking at shot at Jon Jones.

It’s obvious that Punk loves MMA and wants it to succeed, but if his beliefs cause him to disagree with Jones getting such a high-profile deal, that’s his prerogative.

A lot of people still haven’t quite forgiven Jones for his mistakes made last May, and the case may be made that CM Punk is one of those people.

Difference is, Mixed Martial Arts is a True Sport and WWE/Pro-Wrestling is NOT!

The Irony of this is CM Punk works for a business(Pro Wrestling) that's had numbers of guys/gals abusing drugs etc.... Alot of those guys are dead too,that abused steroids,pain killers,and the list goes on. I'm a fan of CM Punk but he should choose his battles carefully! People need to stop acting like all Professional Athletes should be perfect,and never doing anything wrong. There Human Beings just like we are. Judge yourself before judging others!!

No, it's not. Jones got a DUI. Okay. Have you seen the rap sheets on some of the other people that Nike has endorsed? We're talking a fucking corporation whose bottom line is based on slave labor anyway, so all the sanctimonious bullshit about whom they choose to sponsor seems extremely silly to me.

Wrong. Very very wrong. WWE world wide is leaps and bounds above MMA and the UFC. It's not even on the same level. Boxing and MMA combined couldn't even beat the popularity world wide of WWE. CM Punk is a far more recognizable star than Jon Jones world wide, that is just a fact. I don't like either guy, but lets not ignore the facts.

Won't make me run out and buy nike sh1t cause jon is wearing it for at least a couple of reasons.1. Nike had nothing to do with Jon being where he is at.2. I'm no fan of Jones. He comes off as a fake.
