CM Punk Claims He Would Be Dead If He Didn't Leave WWE In 2014

Potential new WWE Backstage host speaks out!

It appears that CM Punk is on the brink of a WWE return of sorts as he looks set to become a host on Fox's new weekly 'WWE Backstage' show.

However, in an interview with Collider Live, The Straight Edge Superstar has once again been talking about his 2014 departure from the company and has claimed he would now be dead if he didn't walk out: "Talking about wrestling and me doing anything in a wrestling arena always feels kind of weird and uncomfortable because there are so many variables. The number one thing for me is, I will never put myself in a position where I can be harmed ever again.

"There's a lot of trust that goes into that. I gave of myself to a point where, I look back at it, and if I didn't leave and walk out, I would be dead. Because nobody else was gonna do it. I was sick, hurt, and messed up. And the people put in place to help; they weren't helping."
