Bully Ray recently spoke with Metro and gave his opinion about a hypothetical future return to wrestling by CM Punk.
In Bully Ray's view, CM Punk should consider coming back to Ring of Honor, where he got his start, rather than going back to WWE, a place he left so acrimoniously.
“I don’t know CM Punk on a personal level, we’ve met two or three times and exchanged pleasantries and had small conversations. I do believe we have a mutual respect for one another, and I understand the kind of guy CM Punk is. I hope that he does step back into a wrestling ring one day, and I hope that ring is ROH. CM Punk obviously did not have a great relationship with WWE, who left a horrible taste in his mouth. He has been extremely verbal about that, so I don’t know why he would ever go back there. I do understand to go back for the money, but I’m not sure that he needs the money or he would want the aggravation or the headache of going back there. CM Punk could do more for the wrestling world by coming back home to ROH than going back to WWE. Because what is there for him to do at WWE? There’s really not much left, and he’s going to have to do it their way. So if he needs for his ego to work the last match at Wrestlemania, then great, but I think he’s worth so much more to the wrestling world by breathing life into the business by going back to a company like ROH. If he shows up in ROH, the entire wrestling world will be buzzing about in a positive way. If he goes back to WWE, yeah people will be talking about it, but it’s also like, hey you said you were never going back, but now you’re back.”
