CM Punk made an appearance on Wednesday’s Collider Live podcast to promote Girl On The Third Floor and during that appearance, he discussed his recent tryout with Fox for the WWE Backstage studio show.
This is where he confirmed the tryout as his agents reached out to him because of how much Fox is investing in WWE with SmackDown.
He praised Renee Young and stated that this potential role would be similar to what he does for CFFC MMA (commentary) that airs on UFC Fight Pass.
Punk brought up how he told Fox that he wasn’t going to come on the show and dump on the product but rather tell them his honest belief including if something is bad and he would have to be honest about it.
Punk didn’t mention where the process is at or how the tryout went but did make it clear that he’s not interested in returning to the ring.
Instead, he’s in a position where he’s open to anything other than wrestling. The reason for that is due to him growing as a person and is a businessman.
