Count Randy Orton as one of the people in WWE that are rooting for CM Punk to do well in UFC. He has said to those around him that if Punk does well in MMA, then it gives professional wrestlers some credibility as athletes. Orton feels that people underestimate their abilities because the outcome of matches are scripted and predetermined. Several other wrestlers share the same opinion and will be watching his debut match intently.
