Top FOX Executives Reportedly Behind CM Punk’s Auditioning For WWE Backstage, Jim Ross Rejects Offer



CM Punk will officially co-host the upcoming WWE Backstage show on FS1 beginning next month and pro wrestling fans couldn’t be any happier.

The longest-reigning WWE Champion of The Modern Era, Punk is set to share the screen with Renee Young and 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that FOX Sports’ Senior Vice President of Production and Talent Jacob Ullman and Ben Grossman are responsible for bringing Punk on-board.

“Regarding Punk, the names we heard were Jacob Ullman the Senior Vice President of Production and Talent at Fox Sports, and Ben Grossman, who brought him in for the screen test after Punk’s agent at CAA (coincidentally the same group that represents WWE).”

Under his new gig, the Second City Saint will be working for FOX and not WWE. While fans are still rooting for Punk to make an in-ring return, it doesn’t seem like the 40-year-old ex-Superstar has any intention of lacing up his boots any time soon. But never say never in pro wrestling!

Further reports suggest that WWE Hall Of Famer and current AEW employee Jim Ross was also offered a role on the FS1 talk show. Goes without saying, the legendary commentator rejected the offer without a second thought.

“To show how much it’s a FOX call, Jim Ross was offered a spot on the show. Ross turned it down, for obvious reasons, but the fact he’d get an offer was telling.”

It is to be noted that unlike NBCU and USA Network, FOX is very hands-on with the overall product that WWE plans to showcase in due course.

“We’re told that the people in FOX Sports who are working with WWE are far more knowledgeable about the product and the industry than those within NBCU and USA.”
