Jonathan Gresham On Why He Wants To Face CM Punk & Bryan Danielson (Exclusive)

Jonathan Gresham has addressed his desire to face both CM Punk and Bryan Danielson for the ROH World Championship.

Speaking with Sanchez Taylor of WrestleTalk after PROGRESS Chapter 130, Original ROH World Champion and new PROGRESS World Champion Jonathan Gresham discussed his goals after winning the ROH gold at Final Battle last year.

Gresham stated:

“First of all, at the end of Final Battle, my goal was, and still is, to bring honor and prestige back to the Ring of Honor World Championship, and the only way for me to do that is to wrestle two men. But in order for me to do that, I must wrestle people like me, to prepare for these two matches – to face CM Punk and Bryan Danielson. That’s the only way I’m gonna be able to restore honor to the Ring of Honor World Championship. So I’m waiting for those two matches, in time those two matches will happen, but at the moment I have to fight and wrestle some of the best that the world has to offer, so that’s what I’m doing. I asked for it and companies all over the world have asked to host Ring of Honor World Title matches. So that’s what you’ve been seeing over the last few months.”

As previously mentioned, Jonathan Gresham revealed when he discovered that Tony Khan was purchasing Ring of Honor in this same interview, and the answer may surprise you.

Gresham has also been rumored to be joining either AEW, ROH or both in the near future, but it remains to be seen. When asked if he’d be interested in signing a contract somewhere, he said:

“I’m looking to enjoy my career, I’m looking to enjoy what I’m doing right now. I have freedom, I’m wrestling for all these different companies, and it’s just, wrestling is fun again. Wrestling was fun when I was contracted to Ring of Honor, but my heart is with the indies. I came from the indies, I learned my craft on the indies, and as long as I’m a part of it, I’ll continue to learn and get better and enjoy myself. There’s not a lot of restrictions, I can speak up without fear of repurcussions or catching heat or whatever like that, and it’s just refreshing. It’s fun to wrestle the new guys that are coming up with fresh ideas, so I’m just enjoying it right now.”
