At the end of tonight’s WWE Backstage, CM Punk showed up and will be on next week.
“It’s as simple as this, just when they think they’ve got the answers, I change the culture,” Punk said to the camera. “I’ll see you here next week.”
FOX’s Twitter announced Punk will be “appearing periodically” on the show. Punk originally left WWE in 2014.
At the end of last month, Punk had commented in an interview that he hadn’t heard back since his tryout, however, obviously, FOX was happy with his tryout.
“I did the FOX thing,” Punk continued. “They asked me to come out and I was already in LA, so I went into the FOX studios. I guess you could call it an audition? I haven’t heard a thing. Renee Young and Booker T, I haven’t seen either of them in five+ years. I think Renee is great, that’s the kind of thing she is built for. Booker, to me, he’s Booker; he’s always laughing and he’s good for that kind of role.”

It really is good to hear that music.
When the rumors were floating around prior, the man himself said this would be purely a Fox move (meaning he wouldn’t be signing with WWE), and rumors were that WWE may push against it but not too hard. And with ratings rather disappointing last week given a rough time slot with no real lead-in, CM Punk is actually a man who could move that needle. You know he’s not going to sugarcoat anything in regards to the WWE, and fans may tune in to see what he has to say.
