The Twitter account Fight Oracle is reporting that CM Punk to FS1 as a commentator on WWE Backstage is a “done deal.”
Fight Oracle has a history of breaking WWE-related stories in the past, so this definitely has some credibility behind it.
As we have noted several times here at WrestlePages.com, Punk tried out for WWE Backstage, the new studio show on FS1, with Renee Young. The deal was between him, his agent and FOX and did not involve WWE. Punk confirmed the tryout but no further details were made available.
There continue to be rumors from credible sources that Punk will eventually return to WWE and while this deal is with FOX, it is completely WWE-related. As we have seen in the past, sometimes WWE-related deals without being directly involved with WWE are how strained relationships get mended.
