Punk was asked if he had any nerves at all and he admitted he did. In the video, it shows Punk riding through Los Angeles about an hour before the show started. He did note that at first, he thought it was a commentary gig but rather told it was an analyst role. 

In the meeting with FOX, Punk was told that they wanted him to be the WWE version of Troy Aikman for the NFL and A-Rod for baseball.

As noted, Punk is not under contract with WWE but rather with FOX as a deal was reached a few days ago. You can watch the entire video by clicking on the player below:
