CM Punk working with WWE seemed like an impossible thing just a few weeks ago but things have changed drastically and now it appears that the former Champion may actually be affiliated with the company once again very soon.
The reports of Punk’s agents reaching out for WWE Backstage hosting gig first came out in late August and later last month, the former World Champion confirmed that he had a tryout for the show which went very well.
Now @fightoracle which has a track record of breaking wrestling-tv related news is reporting that the former World Champion signing with Fox for the upcoming studio show on F1S is a “done deal.”
It’s unknown what CM Punk will be doing at the show but he has signed as a commentator. It has been reported previously that Fox has tried several different variations for the program featuring booths of up to 5 people.
Both Renee Young and Booker T are expected to be regulars on the show with other legends being brought in according to the needs, but it would make more sense to feature someone like Punk in a more prominent role.
WWE backstage will premiere on F1S at 11pm ET on Tuesday, November 5 with Renee Young and WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T as the hosts.
