WWE star CM Punk attended the Rancid show in Detroit, Mich. last night and appeared onstage with the band. While on the stage, lead singer Lars Frederiksen said he had written new music for Punk and it would debut at Payback. Punk also tweeted a picture from the side of the stage.

Shore’s Slant: I’m such a fan of Cult of Personality that I hate this personally, but this makes good sense, especially if Punk turns as expected. One of my longtime gripes with WWE is that when guys turn, they often keep the same music and same look (with the same move set if they’re R-Truth). Punk is smart enough to know an evolution of character needs to be from top to bottm.
