While there have been rumors about talks for months, it was nonetheless hugely surprising when CM Punk showed up at the end of WWE Backstage on FS1 on Tuesday -- so much so that even the performers themselves couldn't quite believe it. FOX Sports put together a video of the hour-plus leading up to Punk's entrance:
It was an interesting wrinkle that Punk admitted he was nervous for the moment. Obviously this is a natural emotion given that he's been away from the WWE universe for nearly six years, but it's still different to see him acknowledge the vulnerability.
I get that this is a really weird thing for me to say if you're not a wrestling fan, but I've legitimately been having goosebumps from the moment all week, and am pretty excited to see where this all heads next.
