CM Punk reportedly visited FOX studios over a potential role for WWE Backstage

According to PWInsider, CM Punk was present at FOX studios for a role on the new Fox Studios 1 show WWE Backstage which will air from November 5. Punk apparently tested some on-camera material in the presence of Renee Young. It is yet to be known whether the former WWE star has signed a deal or not.

Apart from Punk, FOX have been recruiting several names for the show namely Taz, who has been brought in several times over the course of the last few months. Other names who have been brought in for a potential role include Paige, Sean Waltman, and Rey Mysterio.

It is to be noted that WWE Backstage will be produced by FOX, so should Punk accept the role, he would be working for FOX and not the WWE.

    I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it turns out to be all a load of rubbish

    I am surprised they would be interested in Taz. He rarely has anything good to say about the WWE product.
    While Punk obviously has his issues with them and isnt afraid to shoot them down verbally, Taz has a regular podcast and it is much more common for Taz to slap WWE around.
