CM Punk is one of professional wrestling’s biggest stars. Punk’s run with WWE marked a paradigm shift for wrestling at the time as the Second City Saint was able to captivate audiences on what had become stagnant television programming. Punk built that WWE career on the work he did in Ring of Honor. The AEW star has never been shy about staying true to his roots.

ROH is now honoring Punk by announcing him as the latest induction into their Hall of Fame. ROH previously announced Bryan Danielson, Samoa Joe, and The Briscoes for the honor. Now CM Punk will take his rightful place. Ring of Honor issued a press release announcing the news on their website.

“Ring of Honor is proud to welcome CM Punk, one of the most charismatic and compelling performers in ROH history, into the ROH Hall of Fame.

Punk is the final member of the inaugural class, joining the Briscoes, Bryan Danielson and Samoa Joe.


Punk made his ROH debut in 2002 and experienced a meteoric rise thanks to his in-ring ability, mic skills and brash attitude. He incited fans by proclaiming that his straight edge lifestyle “means I’m better than you.”

Punk had many memorable moments in ROH, including the iconic “Summer of Punk,” which began when he won the ROH World Championship in June 2005 right after accepting a deal with WWE.”

CM Punk is one of the biggest parts of the incredible history of ROH. It is an honor that is more than well-deserved. Congratulations to CM Punk on being inducted into the ROH Hall of Fame!
