Daniel Puder had every reason, at least in his own mind, to leave professional wrestling for good following his 2005 WWE release. After winning the first season of Tough Enough, he was publicly bullied and beaten in the Royal Rumble, then sent down to developmental and released in order to avoid paying his contract he had won on the reality show.

Given all that, it was surprising to hear in December of 2007, Ring of Honor announced that Puder had signed with the company. Two years after his WWE release, the mixed martial artist would debut at Rising Above, attacking Claudio Castagnoli in the main event. He would in turn join the faction known as Sweet and Sour Inc. The Tough Enough winner would make his ROH debut shortly after, defeating Mike Bennett by submission.

The next night Puder would enter the ring, and issue a submission challenge, playing off his controversial segment with Kurt Angle. He would defeat Alex Payne and Rhett Titus in short order, with no controversy attached to the segment. That would be Puder’s final appearance for Ring of Honor, as he was released by the company, once again for budgeting reasons.
