Bully Ray Invites CM Punk To TNA Wrestling

Former TNA Champion Bully Ray Tweeted the following about CM Punk walking out on WWE:

  • Bob’s Diner

    Oh yeah, I see the point in joining a company that can’t afford to keep their current talent or put on a competent show and will likely be out of business by the end of the year. That makes so much sense!

    • Thus said the guy who forgot TNA is 11 years old. Asshat.

      • Bob’s Diner

        When did I forget that? And what’s up with the immature name calling?
        Can’t stand that crap on here…

        Fact is, they can’t afford to pay their top talent. They’ve just lost Hulk Hogan, Jeff Jarrett, AJ Styles and now Sting. Kurt Angle has basically said he’s going in September. They have no stars. They have no money. They are basically an indie promotion with a TV show that no one watches.

        Oh yeah, it is a thriving promotion!

        • Danny_Boy

          Well if TNA is becoming a Indy promotion then Punk should feel right at home there then. He would get to headline ever Pay Per View over there and never have too worry about being outshined by a guy like Daniel Bryan. Perfect situation for CM Punk

          • Nysterion

            All four of their pay per views as they can’t afford to do more than that a year.

          • Noel

            Seems TNA will have more than 4 ppv’s this year

          • Bob’s Diner

            Calling CM Punk an indy wrestler? OMG you are so funny! You’re like an endless Kevin Nash promo!

        • When you make statements like: TNA is closing, 1.5 Million people equals nobody, and that they need Hogan to thrive, that’s when I call you an Asshat. Internet critics that can’t take their own douchebaggery earn no sympathy from me. Now if you want to have a real debate, consider that TNA did just fine before Hogan and Angle. Sting and AJ are replaceable, and Jarrett has been a non-factor for years. I’m confident that TNA has and will continue to create new stars. Talent like Bobby Roode, Austin Aries and yes, Bully Ray. It’s a great alternative to those that don’t want the grueling schedule, and while they may not match what Punk gets financially, I am sure they’ll give him what he wants creatively.

          • Bob’s Diner

            Your idea of “TNA did just fine” is laughable. Sting was the cornerstone of the company. AJ Styles was the ‘face’ of the company. Jarrett was a major factor with wrestlers backstage. I never said they were closing – just that going by their current business model and all the factors around talent, house shows, and tapings of Impact, the business is not flourishing like they would have you believe. Not to mention their creative direction is driving even more fans away at a time when they can not afford that.

            And CM Punk HATED his time in TNA and would never go back. He doesn’t need the money that bad.

            How’s that for your debate, Asshat?

      with all due respect, people have been saying tna will be outta business EVERY YEAR! ha, i guess if u keep saying it,its bound to happen one day right. lol…but theyve been saying it when they started in 2002,and since hogan came in 2010.here we are in 2014, and theyre still kicking, although product sux now…but so does wwe’s product quite frankly. on an entertainment level, wwe and tna are equal right now! ( i said entertainment wise…not financially-wise!)

      • Bob’s Diner

        Oh look, I used to scoff whenever people said it – for years I defended them… but now? Just read what I wrote below…

  • jdl

    Like TNA could afford Punk if they couldn’t even give AJ a contract big enough to keep him around.

    • JR Texx (Jamie)

      If Punk has indeed left, I’m not sure he’ll be bothered, more money than no money.

  • David

    I don’t think CM Punk could even save TNA. If he sits out his contact and the waiting period and they cut 90 percent of their talent which they probably don’t need anyway they still probably couldn’t afford him.

  • No one ever said Bully Ray isn’t entertaining!

    • jdl

      I have. Dozens of times. Watching Bully Ray wrestle is like watching paint dry, listening to his promos is like listening to paint dry. He’s fat, slow and boring.

      • thepowerserge

        Sorry to tell you this, but you’re dead wrong. I’ve had more fun watching paint dry. On the other hand, I’ve given “Impact” wrestling every chance to entertain me, yet whenever Bubba Ray has been in the spotlight, I’ve found myself reaching for the remote every time.

  • Nostaljack

    “Fans would love it”…LOL! What fans? Alex is right; Ray is certainly entertaining.

  • Bill Krow

    Punk would destroy him, not to mention be on a whole other level than the rest of the roster..and its a sinking ship

  • Jake

    Sorry Bully. Fans want Punk in WWE not TNA.

    • Bob’s Diner


      • Jake

        Just a meme I found on the ‘net. Not my creation.

        • Bob’s Diner

          All good I was just in a funny mood

    • JR Texx (Jamie)

      Can’t blame a man for trying.

      • Kevin

        Huge fan of his but I actually blame Punk for his lack of character build in the last year. He is trying to stay relevant by doing this right now. Bryan has passed him and Cena and Orton were already ahead of him. He doesn’t want to leave the WWE right now but needed some new material and this is his angle. Does anyone else see the same parallel between this and Austin in 2002?

    • Peter Nicolaides


  • midsouth

    I wouldn’t mind seeing punk and kurt angle in the ring

    • Bob’s Diner

      That will happen next year when both are back in WWE

      • JR Texx (Jamie)

        Dun Dun Dunnnnnnn!

  • If TNA doesn’t make a serious offer to Punk they’re insane. Punk is clearly over working with the WWE, so much he won’t even compete at Wrestlemania. And he’s right, he should have won the Rumble, beaten the Undertaker and everyone knows the WWE would rather push The Rock, Orton, Cena and Batista over Punk and Bryan. Instead he’s feuding with Kane and losing an Elimination Chamber qualifier to Cesaro. So it makes perfect sense to me. If WCW was still around to offer contracts to both, there’s no way the WWE could get away with treating two of their most popular stars like this.

    • Danny_Boy

      Yeah, I think Punk going too TNA is a perfect fit for him. A C level star in a D level promotion. CM Punk could finally headline a PPV like he’s always dreamed of and wouldn’t have to travel to WrestleMania I mean after all he did say he’s sick of traveling on Twitter and Vince wouldn’t have to deal with Punk’s diva attitude. Both parties win in this scenrio

    • Bob’s Diner

      The problem is what they could offer probably wouldn’t even be a fraction of what he was earning – he isn’t hard up for money. Not to mention last time he worked for them he hated it

  • ldb

    Think of what that could do…Not plausible but what would it be like to see cm punk on tna with angle, roode, soma joe. Not bad company to work with, just to work for with Dixie. You think Vince and Co have become incompetent, try Dixie Queen of the worst Promo Carter

  • Danny_Boy

    I actually think CM Punk would fit in quite well with TNA. A C level star in a D level wrestling promotion makes a lot sense.

  • Jimmy

    Not sure about Bully but Punk has been very vocal on wanting to compete against Samoa Joe again and even face Austin Aries. But then again he has also been vocal about how lackluster TNA is.

  • Christen

    Highly doubt Punk is going to TNA he has stated so many times in interviews. He will never go back to TNA him being in TNA was a one time thing he doesn’t want to go back to the company. If he is unhappy with how WWE is heading he would be even more unhappy with how TNA is heading. I think Punk is getting burnt out on wrestling he wants his body to heel

    • Jimmy

      Punk used to be in TNA?

      • Bob’s Diner

        Very briefly, a long time ago. He doesn’t have good things to say about the experience

      • Christen

        Yes punk was in TNA around 2003 he wasn’t there that long maybe for about a year. He quit when TNA wouldn’t allow him to compete in both TNA and ROH so he quit to go to ROH. He has nothing but negative things about his experience and has stated that he will never go back to TNA.

  • Clint

    fans want dream matches, and those two together on the mic would be golden, kurt angle vs daniel bryan, sting vs undertaker, austin vs punk
