In today’s WWE rumors and news, it’s mostly about the return of CM Punk, there is some information on a couple of WWE Superstars who have extended with WWE and more.
Punk Returns to WWE… Sort of
Renee Young dropped a her own huge piece of news and surprised her castmates when, during the closing segment of WWE Backstage, she brought out CM Punk.
When Punk’s “Cult of Personality” rang over the FS1 studio speakers, you could hear Paige saying, “No way! Is this a rib? Is this a rib?” The panel legitimately did not know Punk was going to be showing up.
Punk walked onto the set, looked at the camera and said, “It’s as simple as this. Just when they think they’ve got the answers, I change the culture.” He added, “I’ll see you here next week.”
Reports are that he’s now part of the cast but won’t be on the show each and every week. He’ll periodically show up.
Miz and Paige Extend Contracts
WWE Backstage introduced a segment called the Satin Sheet where Pro Wrestling Sheet scribe Ryan Satin “dropped the dirt” so-to-speak on two big Superstar extensions.
First, after sharing with the WWE Universe that Johnny Gargano was not medically cleared to complete at War Games but both The Miz and Paige had signed multi-year contract extensions with WWE.
Survivor Series Teams Set
