WWE Fans React On Social MediaWWE's Official Statement On Punk's AppearanceAfter a almost six-year absence from WWE TV, CM Punk made a shocking, unannounced appearance on Tuesday night's episode of WWE Backstage, FS1's new weekly studio show.
It should be noted that, in joining the show, CM Punk is likely an employee of FOX and not WWE directly.
In his time away from WWE, CM Punk has remained connected to combat sports.
This week's episode of WWE Backstage on FS1 drew 100,000 viewers at 11pm ET, according to Showbuzz Daily. "Just when they think they have the answers, I change the culture", Punk said.
Punk had parted ways with the WWE six years ago, admitting in multiple interviews he wasn't happy with the direction of the company and the way his character was being used.

The NCP has 54 MLAs is now a discussion with its alliance partner Congress to support Shiv Sena and to cross halfway mark of 145. The former chief minister's colleague, Sudhir Mungantiwar, also echoed his statement and said President's Rule was unexpected.
It's unclear how significant Punk's involvement with WWE will be, and whether he will return to the ring, but outlets have reported he will feature as a special contributor and analyst for Backstage.
It's a FOX show promoted in undefined association with WWE, in that, per PWInsider, FOX arranged the deal with WWE's "personal blessing". "That's a 'could be.' Vince [McMahon, WWE chairman] will say it all the time: 'We're open for business.' The past is passed, today is today and you never say never in WWE", said Triple H.
Punk left an incredible legacy during his WWE career.
While the show is not available in the United Kingdom, Punk's return will generate hope among British fans that the issues between him and WWE have been resolved and he could be seen more going forward.
The viewership for the official week 2 airing of the WWE studio show was delayed because it did not make the Cable Top 150 once again.
