While CM Punk did not appear on WWE Backstage On FS1 on Tuesday night, this week's episode of the FOX-produced weekly studio series did produce a pretty big breaking news story that set the pro wrestling world on fire.

During the "Satin Sheet" segment featuring Ryan Satin on the 12/3 edition of WWE Backstage On FS1, it was revealed that former WWE Superstar John Morrison has signed a contract to return as an active WWE Superstar after a lengthy run outside of the company in such promotions as IMPACT Wrestling and Lucha Underground.

WWE.com released the following announcement confirming the news:

    John Morrison and WWE come to terms on multi-year contract

    John Morrison is headed back to WWE's squared circle after agreeing to a multi-year contract with WWE.

    The Guru of Greatness is set to bring his Hollywood style back to WWE for the first time since 2011. A former Tag Team and Intercontinental Champion, Morrison is still fondly remembered by the WWE Universe for his unique and exciting in-ring style, which was influenced by his extensive background in parkour.

    Morrison's TV return and brand affiliation are still to be determined.
