WWE Doctor's Lawsuit Against CM Punk Going to Trial This Month

Posted By Caroline Walsh on 05/14/18


WWE doctor Chris Amannís lawsuit against CM Punk is set to go to court this month unless he can get it delayed. Wrestling Observer Radio reports that the lawsuit is set to begin on May 21st, before his scheduled fight with Mike Jackson at UFC 225 on June 9th.

Amman is suing Punk and Colt Cabana for defamation over comments Punk made on Cabanaís podcast in November of 2014, alleging that he was mistreated for a back injury and concussion by Amann. Dave Meltzer noted in on WOR, ďHeís got that [WWE lawsuit], remember heís going to trial on the 21st. Unless thereís a delay, yeah May 21st. He should not be fighting, should he? He may ask for a delay. In the middle of a lawsuit, three weeks from a fight, and thatís a lawsuit where heís going to be cross-examined and gonna testify in. No, thatís a bad deal. Yeah, heís going to have to get that thing delayed past June 9.Ē

The UFC fight will be Punkís second after his debut loss to Mickey Gall at UFC 203.
