Backstage News On When CM Punk’s NXT Deadline Cameo Was Pitched, Punk Praises Cora Jade



As many of you know by now, CM Punk made a surprise appearance at Saturday night’s WWE NXT Deadline 2023 pay-per-view event.

Pwinsider is reporting that Punk’s appearance at NXT Deadline was an idea that was pitched on Friday night at the WWE SmackDown TV tapings.

Punk was reportedly “immediately” ready to appear at NXT Deadline 2023.

Additionally, Punk “missing his flight” was a creative reason to explain his appearance and have fans anticipating his appearance on social media.

WWE also interviewed Punk and Cora Jade following Saturday’s pay-per-view event.

Jade made her NXT return on Saturday night, attacking Lyra Valkyria after the Women’s Iron Survivor Challenge which was won by Blair Davenport.

Punk said that he was proud of Jade, adding that his wife April Mendez (former WWE Superstar AJ Lee) was also happy about her. He stated,

“You should be very proud of yourself. Often, I feel like I need to be stepping on the gas, and I don’t stop and smell the roses, so you should do that. This is your house now. You should be very proud of yourself and April’s proud of you too.”

The two then shared an emotional embrace as Punk is Cora Jade’s childhood idol and her gimmick is somewhat inspired by Lee.

Punk then apologized for interrupting to which Jade said, “If I got CM Punk’s approval, that’s all I need. See ya!”
