Punk was asked if he would talk to WWE if they called during the interview.
“I wouldn’t not talk to them,” Punk said. “On what planet, in what other business does somebody suspend somebody else, and then they don’t come and get them after the suspension. Like, why is it up to me? It’s just a weird situation”
According to a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Punk’s agents reached out to Fox in regards to potentially co-hosting the FS1 in-studio WWE show set to premiere this fall.
“What we do know that is interesting is that CAA, which represents Punk and also represents WWE, has had an agent reach out to FOX head honchos about Punk as a co-host of the upcoming new FS 1 talk show,” wrote Dave Meltzer.
