Everybody has been chanting three syllables whenever there is a chance for a surprise WWE appearance – and you are free to join us chanting “CM Punk”.

There have been speculations circling about different social media platforms about the former WWE star joining FOX Sports after posting a FOX Sports microphone on his Instagram story with the word “Lol” over a week ago.

The posting of him possibly joining WWE Backstage made rounds on the internet since the program was scheduled on a weekly basis on FS1 that started last night.

Reports from PWInsider shared that the 41-year old wrestler won’t be appearing on the show and Punk has no current deal with FOX after being brought in for a tryout several weeks back and is not currently in Los Angeles.

The 41-year old wrestler per Bleacher Report that he, indeed, auditioned for WWE Backstage. "Originally I thought it was a WWE thing, so I was just like, 'Meh, no.' But then they said, 'This is FOX,'" Punk revealed.

The former WWE champion is not new to hosting and commentating wrestling events. He spent some time doing an on-camera analyst role for WWE RAW while recovering from an injury and is also considered as one of the best on-mic talkers in the ring.

His addition would have been a guaranteed crowd-drawer given his mic skills that attract everybody to glue themselves either on the ring or on their TV. His presence may give WWE a boost to their viewership.

With several other wrestling promotions on the rise, one notable competitor is the AEW (All Elite Wrestling) billed by Cody and Dustin Runnels (popularly known as Cody Rhodes and Goldust) and Chris Jericho as the current AEW Champion.

Y2J’s presence alone draws a lot of his followers, both in the wrestling world and on the heavy metal music scene.

We cannot discount Punk’s appearance on the show but at least, not last night. There is nothing that a huge fan clamor cannot do.
