phil brooksNumerous readers have sent in word that on tonight's edition of "Talking Dead," which follows AMC's "The Walking Dead," CM punk was announced as next week's "Talking Dead" guest. He was announced, however, by his real name, Phil Brooks, and the show noted he is aka CM Punk.

Punk was previously scheduled to be a guest on an earlier episode of the show, but after he quit WWE he was pulled from the appearance and next week appears to be his rescheduled date.

"Talking Dead" airs at 10pm EST on Sunday night, and Punk will appear on the live broadcast with host Chris Hardwick and a panel that includes Melissa McBride and Yvette Nicole Brown.
