Cejudo made news tonight following his Championship victory over Cruz. The Bantamweight Champion won the match via a second-round TKO. He left the fans stunned after his victory, by announcing his retirement.

Punk has taken jibes at Vince McMahon and WWE in the past

As for Punk, he hasn't been one to ever shy away from taking jibes at the company he left six years ago. Punk left WWE in bad terms and hasn't wrestled a match ever since. Last year, many fans speculated that Punk would make his way to All Elite Wrestling, but nothing of that sort happened.

Punk made a surprise appearance on the November 12 edition of WWE Backstage, and it was soon announced that he had been hired for the FS1 show as an analyst and special contributor. Ever since then, he has been pretty vocal about WWE's weekly product, though there have been a bunch of storylines that he liked.
