Someone mentioned a possible war of the words battle between former UFC middleweight contender Chael Sonnen and WWE superstar The Rock on Twitter Monday night. The Rock, who has been featured in several blockbuster movies, was part of the WWE Monday Night Raw 1,000th episode.
"Set it up. We will do it for charity," Sonnen responded to someone saying, "I can only imagine how a war of words between The Rock and Chael Sonnen would be like."
Sonnen is a close friend of WWE champion CM Punk, and was going to have Punk walk him to the Octagon earlier this year for a fight with Michael Bisping. Punk and another wrestler, Daniel Bryan, actually re-created the Sonnen-Anderson Silva finish fromUFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II on a recent edition of Raw.
