CM Punk Comments On Dismissed Lawsuit; Says Colt Cabana Tried To Extort Him, Quotes Taylor Swift

CM Punk blasts Colt Cabana.

On Sunday night, PWInsider reported that the lawsuit between CM Punk and Colt Cabana had been settled and dismissed with prejudice. Cabana sued Punk in August 2018 for $1.2 million, alleging that Punk agreed to pay for Cabana's legal fees but "suddenly" demanded Cabana pay over $250,000. Cabana accused CM Punk of being the reason he had to seek other legal counsel in the June 2018 trial against WWE doctor Chris Amann.

With the lawsuit dismissed and finally behind him, CM Punk took to social media to comment on the lawsuit and his broken friendship with Cabana. Among other things, Punk notes that he wanted to go to trial, claims Cabana tried to extort him, and quoted the Taylor Swift lyric "Play stupid games, win stupid prizes."

Cabana has yet to comment on the lawsuit publicly.

Along with the dismissal of the lawsuit, Punk was in the headlines earlier this week with reports that he tested on-camera for WWE's upcoming studio show WWE Backstage. You can find details of Punk's on-camera testing by clicking here.
