WWE vs. UFC: Triple H Thinks MMA Is Fake, While CM Punk Signs Deal with Fighting Organization?
The WWE has had an insane amount of success over the years, however, there has been a new challenger on the stage with the creation of the UFC in 1993. It turns out that the two may not be that different, as Triple H has asserted that MMA borrowed the WWE's tactic of theatrics. Meanwhile, others like CM Punk have switched companies and proven which organization they think is better.
In reality, it is hard to determine if Triple H's statement is directly accusing the UFC of stealing, or if he is simply trying to show how similar the two companies are.
By doing this, he could also be capitalizing on their success and trying to jump on the bandwagon.
Nevertheless, Cage Side Seats revisited Triple H's statement from earlier in the year, and it can be seen to have many different meanings:
"Live professional MMA is not just a sporting event; it is also entertainment and theater. The fighters are athletes and performers both. Live professional MMA matches provide fighters with myriad expressive outlets, allowing fighters to build relationships with their fans and tell the world their story. The expression in these live events begins far outside the cage, is carried into it, and continues when the fighters exit. Professional MMA has, over the years, developed its own unique pageantry and tradition. Many fans come for this complete story."
Regardless of how similar one is to the other, some wrestlers have shown which company they think is doing the sport more justice.
Brock Lesnar was the first, and according to Buzz Feed, CM Punk has also switched and announced that he is going where the fight is:
"Almost one year after abruptly walking out of the WWE, 36-year-old professional wrestler CM Punk has signed with the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Dana White announced on Saturday night during UFC 181 in Las Vegas, Nevada. CM Punk appeared ringside with UFC commentator Joe Rogan, saying "I have a limited window like all fighters do, and I'm here for a fight... This is my new career, 100%."
It is true that the two styles of performing have their differences and similarities. However, so do McDonalds and Burgerking, but everyone still has a favorite. Which one is yours?
