Philip Jack Brooks more commonly known by his ring name CM Punk is an MMA fighter and professional wrestler. He is currently signed with the UFC and competes in the Welterweight division. Punk was an integral part of the WWE.
CM Punk was born on 26 October 1978 in Chicago, Illinois, U.S. She is married to AJ Lee, who is also a professional wrestler. Punk first debuted in 1999 and retired from professional wrestling in 2014.
According to the latest speculation, CM Punk is returning to WWE as the former WWE Superstar was spotted at FOX Studios auditioning for a role on WWE Backstage.
When Punk appeared as a guest on Collider Live, he was quick to confirm that the report is indeed true. Punk although confirmed that he would be dealing with FOX studios and not the WWE.
Renne Young and Booker T are going to host the show, and CM Punk had many good things to say about Renne Young.
During the show, CM Punk said
“My agents just called me and they were like FOX is throwing everything at this because they spent a lot of money on this and they are all in and they have to make it work. They reached out and want to know if you, I think originally, I thought it was a WWE thing so I was just like ‘well, no’, and they are like, ‘this is FOX’. I’m not dealing with anybody in WWE.
They were legit like ‘it’s FOX’ and I was just like ‘okay’, and they explained to me what it was and I love Renne Young. Renne Young is a great person. She’s Canadian, so she’s obviously super over the top. Nice and friendly, and it’s along the lines of what I do for CFFC but I prefaced it with like ‘guys I’m not going to come in and dump all over stuff to dump on it.
Like I said, that’s old Phil. But if it’s bad I go, ‘I Can’t, I’m not going to be able to pretend that it’s anything but bad’. So they want to present it like it’s a real sport and just have a show that recaps stuff, just like they do with the NFL. Just like the NHL Network will do with Hockey games and stuff like that. That’s where we are with that.”
Punk was also heard joking, he said
“Really You mean to tell me you’d watch a show where I talk about wrestling?”. Punk also admitted that the WWE return rumors have taken a life of their own.
According to the latest WWE Smackdown News, Punks tryout went well and we would be seeing the former WWE champion on WWE Backstage. But if Punk returns to WWE is yet to be seen. Punk is set about not wrestling again, but Triple H seems to be open towards working with Punk. So if they come together is yet to be seen.
