After a week, the trial of CM Punk and Colt Cabana vs Chris Amaan has ended, with the jury siding with Punk and Cabana.
WWE Senior Ringside Physician Dr. Chris Amaan sued Punk and Cabana for slander after a few episodes of Cabana’s podcast, “Art of Wrestling,” where CM Punk made some comments about Amaan and his condition during his last year with the company.
It was reported by ESPN‘s Brett Okamoto that Punk and his wife April (AJ Lee) were seen hugging and crying following the jury’s decision.
Dr. Amaan was seeking +$4 million in damages, claiming that Punk’s comments damaged his career. Amaan claimed that he was harassed by fans, causing his relationships with various patients to sour, yet could not prove any damages that had been caused.
With the trial now behind him, CM Punk looks forward to UFC 225 where he’ll face off against Mike Jackson. UFC 225 takes place this Saturday in Chicago.
