Despite CM Punk’s apparent eagerness to rejoin WWE, the company’s response was less than enthusiastic. Sources from Ringside News claimed that during Punk’s stint on the WWE Backstage show on Fox Sports, he made several attempts to reintegrate himself into the WWE fold.

However, WWE reportedly never showed any interest in having him back.

Punk’s role as a special analyst on the WWE Backstage show, hosted by Renee Paquette, was particularly noteworthy.

RSN’s ‘insiders’ suggest that Punk believed he was crafting his own storylines on the show, but WWE remained uninterested in his proposals.
