Update On CM Punk's Status For WWE Backstage On FS1 (12/3/2019)

It looks like CM Punk took a "hard pass" on appearing on this week's edition of WWE Backstage, but is "90-percent sure" he will turn up for his second full appearance on next week's WWE TLC "go-home" episode.

"The Best in the World" responded to a fan on Twitter who asked if he will be returning to the show he was announced as the new co-host of tonight after missing last week's show, and the 0-2 UFC fighter informed the fan that he took a "hard pass," but that he is "90-percent sure" he will return on next week's show.

Next week's edition of WWE Backstage is scheduled to air on FS1 on Tuesday, December 10th at 11 p.m. Eastern Time. It will be the final episode of the show heading into the WWE TLC 2019 pay-per-view on Sunday, December 15th.

It is worth noting that Seth Rollins, who Punk has been going back-and-forth with on Twitter and on his lone full-appearance on WWE Backstage two weeks ago, is scheduled for tonight's episode.

Featured below is the aforementioned CM Punk tweet responding to the fan about tonight's show and how he is likely for next week's episode. Social Media Interaction
