As we had reported before, the news of CM Punk’s representatives reaching out to Fox officials regarding a possible role at the show first came out in September.
The former WWE Star then confirmed these reports and last month he revealed that he had auditioned for the series among several other legends which the network had brought in for a potential role at the show.
The former World Champion did try to throw off the fans by saying that he hasn’t heard back from the network but fans were still hopeful about it after he removed his merchandise from the Pro Wrestling Tees store.
His return has created a massive buzz and WWE backstage has started trending on Twitter. Now it will be interesting to see how his return plays out and how much freedom Punk gets on the show.
