• CM Punk Confirms He’s In Talk With FOX For WWE Show, Triple H Reacts
During a recent interview on Collider Live, former WWE Champion CM Punk confirmed that he’s in contact with FOX for the “WWE Backstage” talk show on FS1.
Below is what Punk said:
“Yeah I did it. I’m very much in a position where, ‘Well come talk to me.’
My agents just called me and FOX is throwing everything at this because they spent a lot of money on this and they’re all in to make it work. Originally I thought it was a WWE thing, so I was just like, ‘meh, no.’ But then they said, ‘this is FOX.’
I’m open to anything. If they come to me with, ‘Hey we want you to wrestle,’ I’ll say, ‘um, I’m not interested’.
I’ve grown so much as a person and I look back at all the stuff and I don’t need it. I don’t need the confrontation and I don’t need the drama. But I’m a businessman. I also put my morals and my integrity above business deals.
If you want me to do anything, well OK, come talk to me but don’t waste my time.”
WWE Hall of Famer Triple H was asked about this on Sports Illustrated podcast and The Game made it clear that “WWE Backstage” is FOX’s show:
“Look, I’ve read about that as well. You know, to be clear, FOX is doing this show, and it’s their show, and it’s something they’re doing to talk about the WWE Universe and everything going on in it.
They’ve had a long list of people they’ve been interviewing and everything, but as far as for us, one of the things I think this company has shown over and over again, is never say never.
If the opportunity is right for everybody and it’s right for our fans, then we are willing to put the past behind us and move forward. So, I would say, never say never, but that’s also probably a long way from coming to. I don’t know.
That’s also a little bit outside of my purview at the moment, but like I said, never say never.”
