Well, he's back, people. And the whole internet couldn't be happier. CM Punk has made his way back to the WWE...just maybe not in the way we all expected. Instead of grapples and fists, it's going to be his words, wit, and analytical abilities that carry him forward on the new Fox Sports FS1 program, WWE Backstage. There had been rumors and reports that he'd auditioned for a role on the show, with confirmation later coming from Punk that he was indeed in talks. But nobody could have expected Renee Young to signal for "Cult of Personality" at the end of an episode. It was an amazing moment.
His words instantly fit in with the guy everyone came to love over his years on TV: “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.”
As reported by WWE after his surprise debute, he'll be making "periodic appearances." And apparently, almost everyone was left in the dark. Check out the videos below, and let us know if you think Punk will be making his way into the ring anytime soon!
