Former WWE World Champion CM Punk could be returning to the company tonight, if the FOX Sports Mexico team is to be believed.
Punk, who left the company in 2014 citing conflict backstage has kept his distance since his departure, though rumors have circulated recently of him returning in a non-wrestling role.
On Twitter, the FOX Sports MX account tweeted out the following video, which teased John Cena, CM Punk and Nikki Bella possibly appearing on tonight's pilot episode on FOX.

Punk recently tried out for a role with FOX as the host of the new FS1 studio show 'WWE Backstage', which is currently set to be hosted by Renee Young and Booker T.
Tonight's edition of WWE SmackDown will mark the first episode of the blue brand on FOX, as well as the 20th anniversary of the show.
