After Triple H accompanied boxer and friend Floyd Mayweather to the ring for his boxing match this past Saturday in Las Vegas, F4WOnline.com is reporting that there is a lot of internal discussion in the WWE about Triple H’s appearance considering that the WWE refused to let CM Punk accompany UFC fighter Chael Sonnen to his MMA fight in Chicago a few months ago.
The reason given for CM Punk not being allowed to accompany Sonnen to the fight because they believed that no one would acknowledge the WWE Champion as a cornerman and it would hurt Punk’s perceived star power.
It’s interesting to note that, outside of WWE.com and other wrestling sites, Triple H’s appearance (who shared the accompanying duties with pop star Justin Bieber) with Mayweather did not get much mainstream media attention.
