November 18, 2019 Observer Newsletter: CM Punk joins WWE Backstage, Full Gear review

In the latest example of never say never, C.M. Punk showed up at the end of WWE Backstage on 11/12, and announced he would be starting on the show next week.

The news was something of a surprise, even though it was known he had pushed for the spot and had taken a screen test, and at the time it was widely expected he’d be hired. Punk and everyone had gone mum on the subject in recent weeks, although there were people saying he was in.

Punk will join the regular cast of Renee Young, Booker T, Christian, Paige and Ryan Satin on the show that airs at 11 p.m. Tuesday nights on FS 1. In theory, Punk is with FOX, and not WWE, but the show thus far has been a promotional arm and hardly independent coverage. Punk will appear regularly, but not necessarily on every show.
