As we have reported before, CM Punk was backstage at this week’s NXT.

2-Time WWE Hall of Famer and NXT commentator Booker T noted on his podcast that he almost had a confrontation with Punk backstage.

Here’s what the WCW Legend said:

“I almost had a little run-in with CM Punk. The internet might want to pick that up. Me and CM Punk almost got into it at NXT this week. We’ll talk about it later, because they’re going to pick it up and run with it.”

Here’s a little backstory about the Booker T – CM Punk situation.

Nowadays, Booker T is known for giving his opinion on various current wrestling topics, where he is mostly known for praising WWE stuff and criticising non-WWE stuff, since he’s employed by WWE.

Booker T criticized Punk on his podcast. Here’s what he said about Punk a few months back:

“CM Punk, he didn’t just leave WWE. He got fired from WWE. He didn’t just leave AEW. He got fired with cause from AEW. What value does a person like that bring to your company?”

Due to Booker’s past comments, Punk jokingly calling him a “flip flopper” backstage at NXT Deadline in December 2023.

Here’s what Booker said about his meeting with Punk backstage at NXT Deadline:

“CM Punk wasn’t hiding. He wasn’t hidden away in some room making a surprise appearance. He was running around and mingling.

I ran into CM Punk in catering. Was sitting there talking to Jeremy Borash. I walked up to CM Punk and said, ‘CM Punk! What up man?!?’ He stands up and he goes, ‘What’s up, man? You flip flopper’ (laughs).

I go, ‘You know how the business is, sometimes you’re a heel, sometimes you’re a babyface’ (laughs).

It was very cool. We talked, small talk, he seemed to be at peace and ready to re-write the legacy of CM Punk and finish it off properly.

I can’t say anything bad about him. I know people wish I would say something bad about CM Punk, and I ain’t kissing a$$ or anything, either.

It just seemed like he was in a calm space.”
