CM Punk has left the building *breaking news*

Post by Hero on Wed 29 Jan 2014, 7:20 am

First topic message reminder :

This doesn't sound good at all.

Trouble in paradise.

Just one night after he was the Iron Man in the Royal Rumble match, lasting some 48 minutes from the number one entry spot, CM Punk wasn't booked to appear on Monday Night Raw. This was due to a number of rewrites demanded by Chairman of the Board Vince McMahon.

Now comes a report from the Wrestling Observer that says Punk told McMahon that very night that he was going home before doing just that and, as of right now, he is off all WWE shows going forward.

There isn't any information available outside of that right now. Punk hasn't tweeted anything out since praising fans following the Royal Rumble event this past Sunday night in Pittsburgh.

Neither of them refer to him by name so I dont think he has a case.

WWE's Dr. Chris Amann filed a defamation lawsuit against CM Punk and Colt Cabana today for comments made during their Art of Wrestling podcast made back during Thanksgiving weekend. Amann is seeking more than $1 million in compensatory damages as well as an undetermined amount of punitive damages. He claims the statements made by Punk and Cabana were false, defamatory and put him in a false light by insinuating a lack of "integrity … and/or inability or lack of competence to perform his professional duties as a medical doctor."

Amann's suit includes a detailed transcript from the podcast. The suit also points out that the podcast has been streamed more than 1 million times on YouTube and more than 10,000 times on SoundCloud, in addition to downloads on other platforms.

Punk claimed on the podcast that Amann misdiagnosed a growth on his back as a fatty deposit and disregarded requests to remove it, then said he later found out from another doctor that it was a full-blown MRSA staph infection. The lawsuit says "Amann was not requested by Brooks to treat and/or excise a lump, let a lone a purple, baseball-sized lump," also alleging that Punk never sought treatment for or showed Amann a lump and that Amann never prescribed Punk antibiotics for a lump or concussion.

Punk claimed that Amann once prescribed him antibiotics for a concussion and said he didn't know how to treat a concussion. Punk also claimed that during the Royal Rumble last year, he motioned to Amann that he had a concussion but Amann brushed it off. Amann says he followed proper protocol by advising Punk to leave the ring after a preliminary diagnosis of a possible concussion. Amann says he even requested that Punk undergo further evaluation and treatment in the training room backstage.

Amann is being represented by Phillip J. Zisook and Brian D. Saucier of Deutsch, Levy & Engel in Chicago. The lawsuit wasn't filed until today so it's likely that Punk and Cabana weren't served yet

Ashley Cole successfully sued the News of the World and The Sun, when they wrote defamatory stories about him, even though they didn't name him. As long as the his legal team can make a strong enough case that Punk could only be referring to their client, then there's a strong chance this will go to trial.

WWE have released the following statement & video

WWE issued this statement and video above in regards to Dr. Chris Amann filing a lawsuit against CM Punk and Colt Cabana:

"In light of CM Punk's allegations regarding WWE's medical staff and the subsequent defamation lawsuit filed by Dr. Amann against CM Punk, WWE continues to have the utmost confidence in the ability and expertise of our world-class team of physicians, including Dr. Amann.

CM Punk claimed this past November that during the Royal Rumble pay-per-view event on January 26, 2014 he performed with a baseball-sized, purple lump on his back located near the waistband of his tights.

WWE's investigation has shown the following:

·CM Punk did not discuss this alleged condition with WWE's team of physicians and trainers, nor did he discuss it with anyone in our Talent Relations department.
·Subsequently, WWE has no medical records documenting this alleged condition.
·The first time WWE was made aware of this alleged condition was when we received a letter from CM Punk's attorney on August 22, 2014 after WWE terminated his contract.
·There is clear video evidence from the 2014 Royal Rumble, which allows all to decide whether there is any appearance of a baseball-sized growth on CM Punk's back.""

Does it not just come across as someone in the editing suite who got caught with a CM Punk ar*e obsession?

essentially Punk's doctor who he claims to have been treated by following the departure will be one of the key people in this. He may not be able to prove Punk's claims of what happened whilst at WWE but will comment on the severity of the infection

Punk went to the doc a few months after the he left the E right? From my understanding, that's more than enough time to develop a rather nasty looking growth. Almost beyond the realms of possibilities to work with an untreated baseball sized staph infection for very long. With the effort pro wrestlers put into their jobs, must be a hammer blow to the immune system. Would be only slightly short of remarkable for for him to have basically operated on pain killers
