CM Punk, Rhea Ripley to appear on WWE Backstage next week

The date for CM Punk's next appearance on WWE Backstage has been revealed.

On last night's Backstage, it was announced Punk will return to the show's panel for next Tuesday's episode. This will be Punk's fifth appearance as an analyst since joining Backstage and the first time he's been on the show since February 11.

It was also announced that NXT Women's Champion Rhea Ripley will be the in-studio guest on Backstage next week. Ripley will defend her title against women's Royal Rumble winner Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 36.

The build to Ripley and Charlotte's title match at WrestleMania continued with Ripley making an appearance on Raw this Monday. Charlotte cut a promo saying that the hype surrounding Ripley isn't going to last. Charlotte said she was going to teach Ripley a lesson at WrestleMania, then Ripley came out to interrupt her. The segment ended with Ripley dropping Charlotte with a punch to the face.

AJ Styles was the featured guest on Backstage last night. His interview from the episode is available to watch below:
