As reported before, Vince McMahon reportedly pulled WWE Champion CM Punk from escorting Chael Sonnen to the Octagon at UFC's January 28th show on FOX from Chicago. Apparently Punk was also told that he shouldn't even be in attendance at the show. Punk was told at Monday's RAW and one source close to the situation described it as Vince just being in one of his moods. Sonnen reportedly got it cleared with UFC and Punk had it cleared with WWE but when it became a news story, WWE changed their minds.
