It’s been heavily reported that WWE has expressed interest in ROH stars CM Punk, Samoa Joe and Bryan Danielson. More recently, word came that CM Punk was offered a developmental deal with wrestling’s number one promotion. In an interview with Slam! (slam.canoe.ca), Punk personally confirmed the rumors.
On Interest From Other Companies:
It’s a good time to be CM Punk right now. Not that it’s ever a bad time to be CM Punk, but right now it’s a lot of fun. This is probably only going to happen to me once the way the wrestling business is, with there being only one place to make a living and TNA trying their best to make it two places.
On Being The Triple H Of Ring Of Honor (Due To Having Backstage Stroke)
Anybody wants to call me the Triple H of Ring of Honor, I think that’s hilarious. I would prefer to call Triple H the CM Punk of the WWE.
On Receiving An Offer From WWE
I’ve been sitting on an offer for a week and I’ve been thinking about it, and I think it means the world that I’ve been given the time to think. They didn’t try to rush me into anything – they gave me time to think.
