CM Punk auditioned for a role on FOX recently. He was trying to get a job on WWE Backstage, which is the company’s studio news show on FS1. However, it seems that will no longer be happening.
According to a report by Fightful Select, CM Punk did in fact, try out for WWE Backstage, but he was not given any deal. The heads at FOX “seemed like they’d ‘moved on’ as recently as this week.”
Punk’s tryout went well and he impressed the Backstage team, but it was left in the hands of higher-ups at Fox that seemed like they’d “moved on” as recently as this week. Nothing is concrete in that regard, though.
Perhaps FOX might change their minds someday. CM Punk is certainly ‘ready’ for a return to professional wrestling as well. We will keep you updated on CM Punk’s WWE status once we learn more.
