CM Punk reportedly had a tryout for backstage role with WWE

The Cult of Personality may be returning to drop more pipe bombs.

The latest Wrestling Observer newsletter is reporting that multiple sources have revealed that CM Punk was at FOX Studios in Los Angeles earlier this week trying out for a potential on-air backstage role with WWE.

FOX has a new FOX Sports 1 studio show debuting on their network on November 5.

Dave Meltzer had this to say on the matter:

“It’s basically the feeling that even though WWE went after him hard with the lawsuit that cost him a ton of money, like seven figures, that WWE is the place he feels he can make the most money.”

Supposedly Punk did on-camera tests with Renee Young, who according to the new WWE announce team roster, will no longer be doing commentary on RAW. She’s reportedly be reassigned as a “special contributor” to the Smackdown announce team, which absolutely leaves room for her to do other on-camera commentary roles for WWE.

In addition to punk, FOX has reportedly brought in other unique personalities from the wrestling world to test for on-camera roles, including Paige, Sean Waltman, Taz, and Rey Mysterio.
