CM Punk’s departure from WWE in January 2014 sent shockwaves through the wrestling world. Ten months later, appearing on Colt Cabana’s Art of Wrestling, Punk opened up about walking out on WWE and his issues with doctor Chris Amann.
Following the release of the podcast, Amann sued Cabana and Punk for defamation related to comments the pair made aimed at Amann.
Appearing on Live Audio Wrestling with Dan Lovranski, Cabana spoke about the ongoing lawsuit between himself and Amann.
“The update is that it’s still going on. It cost me a lot of money and that’s kind of the extent that my lawyer will allow me to talk. Nothing breaking here. Just do know that it’s always on my mind. It’s always a very sad thing. I’ve talked to other podcaster and even (John) Pollock was like, it kind of changed the way he’s worked and realizing that this is a reality. You can host a show and you can get sued for it," said Cabana.
Cabana expanded a bit upon the last sentence, talking about how he’s changed his ways on the podcast. “It’s always on the back of my mind now. It’s a little upsetting, but that’s the way the world is.”
Lovranski asked Cabana for his thoughts on Vince McMahon’s promo from the Sept. 19 SmackDown Live, which some believe may have been a shot at Punk and Cabana. You can view the promo below:
Cabana said that the comments in McMahon’s promo, “hit a little home and made me a little sad,” but noted that he was the one being hit with a lawsuit, not the other way around.
It’s been two years since the suit was filed and it appears that no end is in sight for Cabana and WWE.
