CM Punk's next WWE Backstage appearance set for next week


After two weeks off, CM Punk's next appearance on WWE Backstage will take place next Tuesday.

Last night's Backstage included the announcement that Punk will be back on the show next week. It will be Punk's second appearance as an analyst. After making a surprise appearance the prior Tuesday, Punk officially debuted on Backstage on November 19.

When FOX Sports announced that he was joining Backstage, it was noted that Punk's role will be as a "special contributor and analyst." He'll make select appearances in studio but won't be on the show every week.

Backstage airs on FS1 at 11 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesdays. The Backstage episode with Punk's official debut averaged 180,000 viewers, which is the best number Backstage has done in its regular time slot.

Backstage drew 49,000 viewers for the first episode in its normal time slot on December 5. That rose to 100,000 viewers the next week. Last week, the show did 121,000 viewers.
