CM Punk made a surprise appearance at the end of Tuesday’s WWE Backstage television show. Punk joined the hosts on the set, approached the main camera, and said: “It’s as simple as this, just when they think they’ve got the answers, I change the culture. I’ll see you here next week.”
Powell’s POV: Punk debuted on WWE Backstage a week after the show bombed in its regular slot premiere on FS1 with just 49,000 viewers. It will be interesting to see how much his involvement ends up moving the needle going forward.
Update: Fox issued a press release that labeled Punk as a as a “special contributor and analyst” and stated that he will make “select appearances” on the show.
