While Punk has confirmed to have tested for the show, he has also stated that he had not heard anything from FOX. With that said, if Punk does end up joining the show, Young welcomes him with open arms. 

"I would love to work with Punk. He's one of the most polarizing and popular figures in WWE history. For him to step back into that world just makes wrestling fans go bonkers, it would be really cool.”

Young starts talking about the show around the one-hour mark. You can listen to the entire interview by clicking on the player below:
