Whether he likes it or not, Phil "CM Punk" Brooks is officially a member of the WWE Universe again, a fact that the official WWE website confirmed following his surprise return on WWE Backstage On FS1 this week.
For those who missed it, "The Best in the World" made a shocking return during Tuesday night's episode of the FOX-produced studio television series covering the latest news and happenings in the world of WWE.
After the show, the WWE on FOX YouTube channel also released this video showing various WWE Superstars reacting to CM Punk's return.
Additionally, behind-the-scenes footage of what happened with Punk and the WWE Backstage On FS1 panel that featured Renee Young, Paige, Booker T, Samoa Joe and Adam Cole has also surfaced online, as the cameras kept rolling after the broadcast ended on FS1.
In another update, after his appearance on Tuesday night's episode of WWE Backstage On FS1, CM Punk's profile has resurfaced on the official WWE website (View Here).
Despite the affiliation, Punk's deal for WWE Backstage On FS1 is directly with the FOX network, rather than WWE. It does, however, go without saying that this deal greatly increases the chances of him appearing on WWE programming in the future.
CM Punk is scheduled to return on next week's edition of WWE Backstage On FS1, which premieres on Tuesday, November 19th at 11pm Eastern Time, and will be the final episode of the show leading into the WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view later that weekend.
