Former WWE Superstar CM Punk was backstage at the Ohio Valley Wrestling this past Saturday night for their “Saturday Night Special” event. Punk spent some time wrestling for OVW from September 2005 to the Summer of 2006, when OVW was the official developmental territory for WWE.
Punk was reportedly there to support his good friend Cliff Compton, better known to some as former WWE Tag Team Champion Domino. Compton won the OVW Heavyweight Championship on that night for the third time in a triple threat match against former champ Melvin Maximus and Marcus Anthony.
Those backstage were told not to approach Punk and he reportedly only talked to Rip Rogers before leaving with Compton, unseen to those in the building.
This will have been Punk's first wrestling event since quitting WWE in January.
