The news of CM Punk trying out for a position at the upcoming WWE Backstage series on Fox was probably the biggest wrestling news coming out of the last few days.
Dave Meltzer provided an update on the situation in the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio and he revealed that the feeling is that Punk’s tryout went really well.
We noted before how Fox has tested out different versions of the show and according to Meltzer, the former World Champion will probably get an offer to join the series.
Since the show will be produced by Fox and not WWE, the Straight Edge Star could accept this offer and it’s speculated that WWE officials would not put up a fight against the decision since it will also keep him away from AEW.
Interestingly, the Wrestling Journalist noted that AEW officials have told them that they will never work with Punk after the former WWE Star thrashed the company during an ESPN interview, saying that they sent an offer for an appearance via text.
