CM Punk recently returned to the world of wrestling to work as an analyst on WWE Backstage, and it wasn’t long before he got called out.
Seth Rollins has been lobbying hard for a match against CM Punk, but so far Punk has shown no interest in returning to the ring for a match against Rollins.
This week Seth Rollins is set to appear on WWE Backstage, but when a fan asked CM Punk if he would be on the show this week Punk responded with the following:
“Nah. Hard pass. Next week though! (90% sure next week)”

We won’t be seeing Rollins and Punk exchange words tonight, but it’s probably safe to say Seth will try to stir the pot some more, as he did in a recent interview when he took a shot at Punk’s run with UFC.
“The bottom line is – the funny thing is, for me, from a guy telling me I need to look for relevancy, here’s someone who has been in the doldrums for the past few years because he got his butt kicked in the Octagon, so bad that he didn’t want to show his face anywhere. Now he shows back up on a WWE TV show, called WWE Backstage. You can say it’s a FS1 show all you want, which it is, and you might be paid by FOX, but that show doesn’t exist without our company. The company you left 5 years ago. So, say whatever you want, play it however you want. That’s what Punk always does.”
