WWE Backstage is currently on a bit of a hiatus due to the coronavirus. CM Punk was supposed to be on the show this week, but it was called off. He loves being on the show, but there are things he would like to change.

While speaking with Swing & Mrs, CM Punk said they’ve talked to producers and it’s a “work in progress.” He’s only been on a few shows, and he does have the freedom to speak his mind. There are still a few things that could be tweaked about WWE Backstage.

“I absolutely adore the show for what it is,” Punk said. “I do wish there were things that we could do differently. We talk to the producers all the time about changing some things. It’s still kind of a work in progress. I’ve only done about five or six shows. I was supposed to be there tonight, but this coronavirus thing killed like three of my jobs. I love the show. I really do.”

“I think there’s a lot of people on there that get on there and say nothing but great things about the product, and then you have me, who will tell you straight up it is what it is. If there’s something I don’t like, I have the freedom to say, ‘no I don’t like it.’ I think I’m a different dude where no matter what I say about the product, someone’s gonna think it’s a personal attack because of my history with the company and Vince, but you need a dissenting voice. You need a dissenting opinion. I’m not disagreeing with people just to disagree. I think I bring valid points to the table.”


WWE Backstage didn’t have the best viewership before they had to go on a coronavirus hiatus. Hopefully, things can be addressed to increase attention for WWE’s Tuesday night 11:00 PM FS1 talk show.
