CM Punk certainly made a splash when he made his surprise debut on FS1’s WWE Backstage last week, and this week he had a lot to say about why he joined the show as well as professional wrestling in general. During the show, Renee Young sat down with him for a lengthy discussion about his status with WWE, why he decided to work with Fox, and more, and during that conversation, Young asked about what the future holds for Punk regarding WWE. The Royal Rumble is early next year after all, which is always good for a surprise return or debut, and she asked if he would possibly show up there.
“I work for FOX,” Punk said. “Haven’t talked to anybody in WWE. Not actively pursuing or interested in, but I’m 41 years old and I’ve lived an experienced life, so I know not to say no, but that’s going to be a bridge that’s going to have to be built and might take as long as building the great wall of China, because there are some hurdles.”
Because he is signed with FOX and not the WWE, Punk had no issues with calling out the company’s product as of late. Specifically, he labeled the recent segment between Roman Reigns and King Corbin as “garbage.” He also advised Seth Rollins to quit tweeting so much and expressed excitement for the upcoming Survivor Series showdown between WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and Rey Mysterio.
