NH: There does seem to be one big name out there that his history with Ring of Honor that would be a big game changer and that’s CM Punk. Have you chatted at all? Have you talked to CM Punk anytime recently?
JK: CM Punk would be an unbelievable addition for Ring of Honor. I don’t know where that would be or could be. It would be a dream. Wrestling talent knows this: once you are a part of Ring of Honor you are always a part of Ring of Honor. Our door is always open to people who want to come back and perform at our level, with our style and for our fans. That would be a dream. That would be unbelievable.
NH: CM Punk with The Bullet Club. I’m just saying.
JK: CM Punk, if you’re listening or reading, I hope you are, you are always welcome in our house. You know that. He knows that. We’ve had conversations in the past through people. He knows that there is a welcome sign for him.
NH: Have you had conversations since he left WWE?
JK: I haven’t spoken to him personally and I think it’s through intermediaries or whatever. I think his first goal was to be involved in his MMA stuff.
NH: Do you know if he has an inkling or desire to have one more run in pro wrestling?
JK: I think that’s a question for him. I wish I had that big story.
SW: He will. I will guarantee you that we will see CM Punk in a wrestling ring again before it’s all said and done. Nobody leaves the pro wrestling industry like that and doesn’t come back.
