CM Punk Discusses How His WWE Backstage Audition Happened

Former WWE Superstar CM Punk was interviewed on the Barstool Sports’ My Mom’s Basement podcast on which he discussed his recent audition for the WWE Backstage talk show on FS1.

"I did the FOX thing. They asked me to come out and I was already in LA, so I went into the FOX studios. I guess you could call it an audition? I haven’t heard a thing. Renee Young and Booker T, I haven’t seen either of them in 5+ years. I think Renee is great, that’s the kind of thing she is built for. Booker, to me, he’s Booker; he’s always laughing and he’s good for that kind of role.

I was told WWE wasn’t involved, but who knows? It could be why I haven’t heard anything yet. I made it very clear to them that if I landed this I wouldn’t be there just to sh*t on everything, because nobody wants to watch that.

The way they approached me with it was like, ‘We have A-Rod for baseball, Troy Aikman for FOX and we would have you for wrestling. That would be your authority. You’ve been there, you’ve done the WrestleManias, you’ve been the Champion. We would like for you to be the analyst.’ I thought it was kind of interesting.

The FOX thing to me was interesting based on that. I’d be an analyst, that sounds great. Let’s be honest, if they (WWE) do something bad, I’m not going to be able to toe the company line.

I’ll be like, ‘Jeez, that was… great.’ I just can’t do that, and I expressed that to FOX. I stated that if that was the case, I’m not interested."
