• CM Punk Wanted To Buy A Popular Indy Promotion

While speaking on the ROH Strong podcast, the company’s owner from 2004 to 2011, Cary Silken, revealed an interesting offer he received from former WWE wrestler CM Punk back in 2010.

Below is what he said:

“I get a text message in like 2010. CM Punk texts me out of nowhere and is like, ‘What would you want to sell Ring of Honor?’

I’ve hustled tickets on the street and have had a somewhat successful business. I don’t think text messaging is the way to approach sales of companies.

That first text message might be, ‘I’d like to talk to you about something.’ Those were my only two real offers…they weren’t real. Those were the only two rinky-dink offers I’ve ever had.”
