CM Punk Joins WWE Backstage

CM Punk WWE Backstage

WWE Backstage got people talking yesterday and it had to do with the conclusion. Before the episode went off the air, CM Punk appeared and announced that he would be on the show next week. FOX’s Twitter account noted that Punk will be appearing periodically.

“It’s as simple as this: just when they think they’ve got the answers, I change the culture,” said Punk in the closing moments of the show. “I’ll see you here next week.”

Punk famously left WWE in 2014 and vowed to never return. He was unsuccessful in his two bids inside the UFC’s Octagon and has now switched focus to TV. It should be noted that the deal with Punk involves FOX and not WWE.

There was speculation that Punk would be getting a gig on WWE Backstage. He tried out for the show a few months back and during Starrcast, Punk was open to the idea of working with Vince McMahon and Triple H again.

WWE’s Official Statement On Punk’s Appearance

After a nearly six-year absence from WWE TV, CM Punk made a shocking, unannounced appearance on Tuesday night’s episode of WWE Backstage, FS1’s new weekly studio show.

The two-time WWE Champion arrived during the show’s final moments, entering to the sounds of Living Colour’s “Cult of Personality,” Punk’s entrance music during his storied in-ring career.

“It’s as simple as this: Just when they think they’ve got the answers, I change the culture,” Punk told the camera, before adding, “I’ll see you here next week.”

Within minutes, the WWE on FOX Twitter account confirmed that Punk will make periodic appearances on WWE Backstage beginning next Tuesday.

Punk left an unforgettable legacy during his WWE career, including holding the WWE Championship for a remarkable 434 days. Since parting ways with WWE, Punk has gone on to author comic books for Marvel, compete in UFC and, more recently, star in the horror film “Girl on the Third Floor,” released in theaters last month.
