CM Punk will be returning to WWE programming on FS1's WWE Backstage. Punk made a surprise appearance on the show on Tuesday night to make the announcement. 

"It’s as simple as this: Just when they think they’ve got the answers, I change the culture," Punk said at the end of the broadcast. "I'll see you here next week." Punk will "be appearing periodically on the show" alongside Renee Young and Booker T.

It's been almost six years since Punk has been on WWE TV. News of the two-time WWE Champion joining WWE Backstage comes on the heels of reports from September that he auditioned for the show. Punk later confirmed that he did in fact speak with Fox. It looks like it all worked out.

WWE Backstage airs on Tuesdays at 11 p.m. ET. 

In other news, Punk made his acting debut in Girl on the Third Floor. The horror film, which was released in October, was directed by Travis Stevens.
