CM Punk is the perfect on the planet at what he does greatest, and that is wrestle–and discuss on the mic. When the wrestler left WWE in 2014, it was a shock to followers, and we by no means thought we might see him once more. Well, he is returned to WWE now, as a commentator for the FS1 present WWE Backstage.
WWE Backstage’s Renee Young made the large reveal on the November 12 episode of the weekly collection. “Cult of Personality” by Living Colour performed, and CM Punk walked out and stated, “It’s as simple as this. Just when they think they’ve got the answers, I change the culture. I’ll see you here next week.”
Punk left WWE in 2014 after the Royal Rumble. He said he was retiring from wrestling–which led him to a profession in MMA with UFC for a short stint–and in November of that 12 months, the notorious Art of Wrestling podcast with Colt Cabana dropped the place Punk opened up about his departure from the company–which included Punk being fired on his wedding ceremony day.
Seeing Punk concerned with WWE once more is a shock and a welcome shock, as nobody thought he’d return at this level. Punk will likely be again on WWE Backstage as a particular visitor commentator and analyst subsequent week.
There’s no information right now for the way lengthy this gig will final, however hopefully, this will likely be a longer-term deal. Aside from his unbelievable skills within the ring, Punk is understood for his mic expertise, together with the notorious “pipe bomb” phase from 2011, the place the wrestler sat on the entrance ramp and unleashed all his grievances with WWE.
WWE Backstage airs on FS1, Tuesdays at 11 PM ET.
