It was noted earlier that former WWE Superstar CM Punk is being persuaded by Ring of Honor for a return to the squared circle. ROH, the former home to Punk, really wants to have their Superstar back with them now that they’re prepping to compete against the big leagues. Their Madison Square Garden show might sell out faster if a return by CM Punk is advertised.
Dave Meltzer notes in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the promotion is still trying their best to get Punk on board for the MSG show. However, Punk has made it clear to the ones close to him that he will never return to a pro-wrestling ring again. Meltzer also notes that the chances of him returning are quite “slim”.
If Punk were to return to ROH, the competition would significantly increase in the United States market.
