Honestly that is where he belongs. Hell wasn't Chael on some comedy show recently? My guess is if he fails to capture the title he will call it quits and pursue a career elsewhere.
Speaking of CM Punk, I just purchased his 3 DVD box set titled "Best in the World" and it's an awesome purchase. Great documentary about Punk.
I wouldnt read too much into this. On the plus side, I can now watch WWE, observe the 'taker locking in a hells gate, and find out what a gogoplata actually looks like, considering Joe Rogan seems to call everything a gogoplata.

I'd say it's Sonnen covering his $$$$$$$ bases. WWE you have to be able to communicate to the fans 1st get in the ring and act second. Hulk Hogan had poor skills in the ring and made it to icon status. We all know Sonnen can talk smack so him and Page are the 2 best canadates and Page doesn't want too.
Chael trained with Steve Austin for one of his last fights. He's pretty good friends with a few wrestlers. I think this could be WWE's way of trying to appeal to MMA fans. Quite honestly I think it might backfire. It'll have some of the rasslin fans thinking "oh, they use the hells gate in UFC?" And maybe they'll gradually start watching less WWE and more UFC. I know I did.
Naah I read somewhere Chael wanted to have CM Punk walk in the octagon with him at his Mark Munoz fight, but WWE didn't want any of that. Chael is real tight with those guys, probably why he acts the way he does when it comes to selling fights.
I've got to agree with you guys, it does seem like quite an unusual choice of MMA fighter for WWE to interview unless they were either interested in him, or it could just be because Sonnen has said before what a big fan of wrestling he is.
I'm going to come out now and say that I think Sonnen will fight Jones, lose in fairly dramatic fashion (probably a sub) then, having exhausted every title shot the UFC could give him, will make a gradual move across to rassssstlin'... and good on him, go make some money Sonnen!
Crazy that wwe would actually interview him, unless there are talks.
Looks like someone has a big money job lined up in a couple years. I was hoping to see him mention the TRIANGLE JOKE as the most dangerous submission, considering his experiences...
