While reports seem to suggest that Fox has finalized CM Punk for a role at the WWE Backstage, the former World Champion himself is claiming that he hasn’t heard back from the network since his tryouts.
The former WWE Star was recently a guest on Barstool Sports’ My Mom’s Basement podcast where he discussed things such as how pro wrestling has helped his acting career, doing MMA commentary and more.
CM Punk’s WWE Backstage Tryout
When asked for an update on all the rumors about him joining the new WWE studio show, the Straight Edge superstar claimed that he hasn’t heard back from the Fox Officials since his audition late last month:
“I did the FOX thing, 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. I was told WWE wasn’t involved, but who knows? It could be why I haven’t heard anything yet.”
Punk went on to provide more details on his tryout. He revealed that he made it clear to the Fox officials that he wouldn’t be there just to sh*t on everything.
While the former WWE Champion is saying that he hasn’t heard back from the television network, his actions seem to indicate that he is gearing up for something big.
Though nothing is confirmed at this point and we will have to wait and see if the rumors of CM Punk joining WWE Backstage actually come true.
