    Interesting name for the PPV…and after a current WWE prodigal’s contract ends. And a debut on traditional PPV…hmmm…ROH, you are very smart with the marketing.

      Punk’s contract ends in July, not June. And Best In The World has been an ROH event for four years now. It was a live event years ago named after Bryan, but when they went to iPPV they debuted it. It’s the second highest grossing ROH iPPV, with 2,600 buys.

        Wow…I stand corrected. Gotta read up on my ROH history. I believe that was the first black mark on my IWC wrestling nerd membership card. I need to go to CM Punk fan rehab to get over it and let go lol!
