Seth Rollins to appear on WWE Backstage this week
Former Universal Champion Seth Rollins is set to make his debut on WWE Backstage, the analysis show on Fox Sports 1, this Tuesday. Rollins has been following the show closely if his tweets are any indication and has previously challenged current analyst and former WWE Superstar CM Punk, to return to the ring.
Host Renee Young was pleased with the announcement of Rollins' appearance on this week's show. But, the question that is on everybody's mind right now is if CM Punk will be on the show. Punk was not on the show last week when Triple H was a guest on the show.
On last week's RAW, there were CM Punk chants during the show, which Rollins responded to, saying Punk was not interested in returning to WWE, despite him challenging the former WWE Superstar to fight him.
Punk has not been advertised for the show yet, but Fox could shock us all by having him and Rollins go face-to-face. Stephen Amell, actor and occasional wrestler, is advertised for this week's show.
FOX Sports' Executive Producer Brad Zager, recently revealed that the Backstage show will be used to "shock" viewers, which is a tactic that they could adopt once again, this Tuesday.
"Part of what we're doing with this show is shock. You heard that natural reaction from our control room not believing that this was really happening. We wanted to make this a surprise. We wanted to make this a moment," said Zager. (H/T WrestlingInc)
If CM Punk indeed makes an appearance, a faceoff between him and Rollins cannot be ruled out and would be worth looking forward to.
