Over the last 24 hours, conflicting reports about TNA offering a big contract to CM Punk have hit the web. According to the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, TNA recently made an offer to Punk through an intermediary but has not convinced him to sign anything. However, according to PWInsider.com, this story was completely fabricated and TNA has made zero offers to Punk since his departure from WWE in January.
The report noted by Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter claims Punk was offered “Hulk Hogan money” by TNA, who wants to position him as the face of the company. They believe this would instantly give them better numbers and help them procure a new television network soon.
However, PWInsider claims that their sources within TNA Wrestling are laughing at Meltzer’s report, saying there is no truth to that report. One TNA source said,
“No offer was made, officially or via an intermediary – no truth to that rumor.”
