Reason For CM Punk Working SmackDown Shows This Weekend



WWE Champion CM Punk will be switching to the SmackDown brand for this weekend’s WWE live events. Punk is on the SmackDown brand to help boost ticket sales in his home state of Illinois.

Punk is scheduled to defend the WWE Title against Daniel Bryan and Kane as part of a double main event with Sheamus defending the World Title against Alberto Del Rio on Saturday in Springfield.

Local advertising reads, “For the first time ever, see BOTH the WWE & World Heavyweight Championships defended in Springfield!” Similar advertising is being promoted for Sunday’s show in Bloomington.
