Former Ring of Honor owner and current company ambassador Cary Silkin is ready to tell his stories. Alongside longtime ROH commentator Ian Riccaboni, he’s launching Last Stop Penn Station, a podcast that will cover his time in wrestling both as an owner and as a ticket seller in 1980s New York.
It is coming soon!!!

Cary sent out the following blurb describing exactly what the podcast will be about.
For the first time, Silkin will come clean on an exclusive weekly basis right here and no subject is off-limits. From his days as publisher of Lucha Libre De Puerto Rico (a San Juan-based wrestling magazine done all in Spanish); from his silent 2003 ROH partnership, sole ownership of the company from 2004 to 2011, and ultimate ambassadorship from 2012 to today upon selling the company to Sinclair Broadcasting, Silkin is a wealth of stories that only he can tell. The man is a wellspring of fascinating stories. From John Belushi to Mick Foley, from Jethro Tull to his Rave Review ticket agency, Silkin is imbued with the kind of rock’n’roll stories that cross all known boundaries.
When ROH branched out to cities across America, the U.K. and Japan; when ROH pioneered pay-per-views with a two-year run on HDNet; when ROH, in conjunction with New Japan, sold out Madison Square Garden within hours last year, it was Cary Silkin spearheading such progressively bold moves. From growing up a nice Jewish boy in Cranford, New Jersey to his dark drug-fueled underground days living and hustling in the French Quarter of New Orleans, every story is worth a telling.
Now you’ll hear them all.
The podcast will run in seasons that run for ten weeks, with an episode dropping each week during that time. The first season of the podcast is expected later this month, so you won’t have to wait long to listen in.
