CM Punk talks about not wanting Vince McMahon to own his ROH footage

During last night’s AEW Revolution media scrum, CM Punk discussed his thoughts on Tony Khan purchasing Ring Of Honor and made it clear he did not want Vince McMahon to own is footage from the promotion.

“Let’s talk facts here, either Tony or Vince were going to buy ROH,” Punk said. “I didn’t want Vince to own any of my [ROH] footage. He owns enough of it already that I don’t get paid for. People need to understand that when I left [WWE], I was asking questions about the WWE Network, which had not been launched yet. I was saying, ‘how am I going to get paid from this?’

“We didn’t even understand what the pay scale is. I didn’t know if I get paid for the date of a pay-per-view or buy rate for a pay-per-view. You guys [WWE] already throw darts at an imaginary board, and you pay me whatever you want. I still get royalties for DVD sets, but once everything went on the Network, I’m not getting paid. Or am I? Tell me, let’s talk about it. They never gave me the answers.”
