Earlier today, the very active WWE on FOX account tweeted, asking fans about the most important moment in WWE history. Many fans replied with their versions, and then there was CM Punk.

The former guest host of WWE Backstage named the infamous ‘Black Saturday’ as what he thinks was the most important moment in WWE history.

What is Black Saturday?

14th July 1984 is widely recognized as Black Saturday in the professional wrestling/sports entertainment world. It is the day Vince McMahon‘s WWF took over Georgia Championship Wrestling’s time slot on Superstation WTBS.

Before being taken over, GCW’s weekly program, World Championship Wrestling, was the major mainstay for wrestling on Superstation WTBS.

It was this take over that laid the foundation for the decade-long promotional rivalry between McMahon’s WWF and Ted Turner’s WCW. The years that followed brought some great time for pro wrestling.

The Monday Night Wars, the eventual WCW buyout, the Attitude Era, and the years that followed have only seen WWE reach greater heights. CM Punk was a crucial part of WWE’s success during his run in the company. Alas, both Punk and WWE had their differences and still continue to stay at loggerheads.

CM Punk returned in the WWE fold (not literally) when he made his appeared as a guest host for WWE Backstage. Although Punk was talking about WWE and sitting alongside WWE talent, he had signed with FOX and not WWE.
