CM Punk's agent has reached out to FOX for a presenter role for post-SmackDown show

SmackDown Live is gearing up for a change in October, as they make the switch from USA Network to FOX.

It will also bring a change of nights for the blue brand, as they will return live to Friday nights for the first time since 2015.

WWE are loading up the first show on FOX, which will also serve as the 20th anniversary episode - already confirmed for the show in Los Angeles are the likes of Hulk Hogan, Sting, Ric Flair, Goldberg, Lita amongst many more.

FOX reportedly want to bring a more sports-oriented feel to SmackDown, which is why Brock Lesnar has been rumoured to make the jump from Raw to SmackDown - whenever he wants to show up that is.

And there may be an hour-long studio show added to the schedule on FOX Sports 1, much like the UFC post-shows that feature the likes of Michael Bisping and Daniel Cormier's punditry.

If that indeed does happen, it looks like FOX are targeting one of the biggest names of the 20th century in wrestling terms to work for them - CM Punk.

According to Dave Meltzer, Punk's agent has expressed an interest in his client being acquired for a presenter role for a potential post-SmackDown studio show, per Fightful.

It's important to note that if anything did happen, Punk would be working with FOX and not WWE, where his relationship is still incredibly strained after his 2014 departure.

Punk currently commentates for Cage Fury Fighting Championships, and if FOX want to bring a legitimate sports feel to the table with an analysis show, who better than Punk to bring in and talk wrestling?

The Straight-Edge Superstar hasn't wrestled since leaving WWE, and his upcoming appearance at Starrcast III, which is closely-linked to All Elite Wrestling shows, sparked rumours that Cody Rhodes and co may have tempted him with a return to the ring.

From the signs he's given in recent times, a commentator or punditry role for good money would probably tempt him to give some insight on WWE, but don't expect him to be seen on Raw or Smackdown in the middle of a ring anytime soon.
