Booker T reacts to CM Punk potentially joining WWE Backstage

WWE Hall of Famer Booker T has given his reaction to the possibility of former WWE Champion CM Punk joining the first WWE program on FS1 in the way of WWE Backstage. 

Renee Young is slated to host the show while Booker T will serve as a member of the panel that will discuss all things WWE on this weekly television show starting in November. 

Over the weekend, there were reports that not only did Punk have a tryout for the show but also filmed test material and has a good shot at getting the gig.  For more on that, click here.

The legendary pro wrestler sounded off on the news in a recent video shared on his YouTube channel. 

“Going back to WWE, my thing is that it must have been the best kept secret FOX ever pulled off. The one I read said that he was brought in to do test shots with Renee Young. No Booker T. I know nothing about this at all.”

“Me and Punk, you know, we had no beef or anything like that when he was in WWE. I remember when I brought CM Punk down to Reality of Wrestling when he was a young kid. He’s a big star now. For the last five years now, he’s been on a hiatus. He had the MMA run with the UFC. I know he’s doing some commentary now with MMA. For him to step back into the world of wrestling, it’s something that I never thought I’d see because when CM Punk, he seemed like that guy that when stepped away from it, he said, I’m done with professional wrestling, and I never want to see a professional wrestler ring ever again.”
