Colt Cabana May Have Just Cost Himself His Friendship with CM Punk

Mixed martial arts (MMA) insider Front Row Brian has revealed on Twitter that former WWE Superstar CM Punk and Colt Cabana are currently in a spat after Cabana went backstage to a WWE Monday Night RAW show. Back in 2014 Cabana and Punk discussed why the former WWE Champion had decided to leave the company, in which comments where made about WWE Doctor Chris Amann. Amann would later file a lawsuit against both Punk and Cabana as a result, as he is seeking more than $1 million in compensatory damages along with an undetermined amount of punitive damages. Word on the street is that Punk is reportedly upset with Cabana for attending the show, as it hurts his defense against Amann:

    Most definitely. I’m pulling for Punk but we’ll see. Can only imagine if he fails at UFC, if there is the slightest chance he’d consider a return to WWE. Unfortunately though if he did, what could he possibly do to change the current product? He’d get his main event at Wrestlemania then what?

    Either it’s rumors or it’s just a personal grudge, friend to friend.

    Reasonable. If it weren’t for Cabana shooting his mouth, half that sh*t wouldn’t have happened.

    Well, at worst it basically makes Cabana look like he’s talking out of both sides of his mouth. With Punk I think he need to be more focused on not getting his head knocked off next Saturday than where Cabana hangs out in his spare time.

    Agreed. I understand where both are coming from especially Punk. If Colt wanted to hang with some friends he could have found somewhere less controversial to do it, not saying there should be any controversy to the choice but I get how it looks and Punk finding it a betrayal and lack of better judgement. I’d say it’s more of a reckless decision, when you’re involved in a lawsuit like this, you have to stay vigilant one hundred percent of the time. You can’t afford things like this to happen, it may have been nothing but the internet has definitely turned it into something.

    I don’t see that this would have any impact on his case, and I would wait and see on whether their friendship is really at risk.
    Simple fact is, with the amount of ex-Indy guys on the WWE roster these days, bit Cabana and Punk probably have a lot of friends in WWE. You can understand that Punk would not go to a WWE show to see them, but Cabana has no such issues. If he wants to visit friends it has absolutely zero impact on any case on either side.

    I’m not sure why someone’s personal opinion has anything to do with the facts or laws being broken which is what would have to be determined if any decision were to be rendered in the favor of Mr Brooks in defense rather than in favor of Dr. Amann. Both he and Colt Cabana could think the Dr. Amann is a swell guy (obviously they don’t but just saying.) That doesn’t mean he didn’t engage in illegal and unethical practices.

    I know the sentiment is that “If you hate WWE so much to sue them why attend their event?” Well if CM PUNK was kicking it with people named in his lawsuit backstage or at all then there would be a valid criticism and that would INDEED hurt his defense. However, Colt Cabana and I’m sure CM Punk have friends that still work there and none of those people are responsible for what allegedly happened to Punk.

    Wrestlers hang out backstage at WWE events all the time. One of the things wrong with society today is that the court of public opinion is valved more than the court of LAW. If this is a slander suit against Punk and Cabana, this doesn’t hurt them at all. This is just Punk being salty and feeling his trust has been betrayed. Nothing more.

    It does and doesn’t hurt it. How can you be all anti WWE if you’re heading to an event with backstage access? At the same time it’s not like he went and a beer with the doc Amann. If anything it hurts Cabana and not Punk. Maybe he went there to possibly be resigned.

  • D2K

    I won’t pretend to understand legal matters, but it seems to me that him going to a show and taking pictures doesn’t eliminate any gross negligence that WWE management has done int the past and should not affect his lawsuit in any way.

    It almost makes his case seems frivolous.
