More Details Emerge Regarding Colt Cabana Suing CM Punk

Published

on

Following the news this afternoon that Colt Cabana has now filed a lawsuit against CM Punk over legal fees accrued during the suit by WWE Doctor Chris Amann against both men (check that out here), more details have now emerged.

According to PWInsider, Cabana was sent a cease and desist letter by Amann’s attorneys back in 2014 regarding the episode of The Art Of Wrestling podcast, which of course started this whole situation. Allegedly, Cabana was told by Punk not to respond to the letter, which in turn led to Amann filing suit against them. Additionally, Cabana is alleging he received an email from Punk over a bill received by his legal team, Loeb & Loeb, in April 2016 that read as follows:

“To date I have spent $513,736 dollars on this Amman lawsuit. My outstanding bill is at least 300K. Half of all this is yours. Divide the 513,736 by 2 that is what you owe me and what I expect you to pay me. Starting now, I will no longer be paying your bills. You are on your own. Whatever my bill is currently, will be cut in half and half will be yours. If you choose to make this all ugly, that’s fine too.  I hope you won’t, but I gave up on you doing what is right a long time ago.”

Cabana also claims that Punk’s attorneys stated they would continue to represent him if there “is no conflict between you and Phil that prevents me from morally and ethically representing you”, even if Cabana would not be paying their fees. Cabana continued to use Loeb & Loeb until March of 2017 when he alleges he was forced to get his own representation and believed that Punk had caused them to withdraw as Colt’s legal representation. On top of that, once the Amann lawsuit came to a close, Cabana’s new representation approached Punk for payment and were turned down.

WWE News: WWE Announces New PC Recruits Including Chelsea Green & More

Published

on

There has been a lot of talk over the last week or so regarding the status of independent star Chelsea Green, as reports surfaced that Lucha Underground’s Reklusa had signed a WWE contract.

Of course, Chelsea was a part of a large tryout this Summer, however months passed without any word of her being signed or not. While recent reports pointed to her working out at the Performance Center as evidence of her signing a WWE contract, it wasn’t out of the ordinary as she is dating WWE Superstar Zack Ryder, who lives in the area.

Today, WWE has announced their next round of Performance Center recruits which includes the aforementioned Green, confirming her signing. Also part of this class is Mia Yim, former Ring Of Honor star Punishment Martinez, Humberto Carrillo (formerly known as Ultimo Ninja, Matt Riddle, former rugby player Daniel Vidot and former NCAA basketball player Jordan Omogbehin:

Matt Riddle, Mia Yim, Chelsea Green among WWE Performance Center’s newest recruits

From one of NXT’s most highly publicized signings of all time to a 7-foot-3 giant, the WWE Performance Center’s newest roster members reported for orientation this week at WWE’s training facility in Orlando, Fla.

The group of seven, headlined by former wrestling champion Matt Riddle, features standouts from the U.S. and international independent scenes, as well as aspiring Superstars from the worlds of rugby and basketball.

Check out the full rundown below.

“The King of Bros” Matt Riddle was announced as NXT’s newest blockbuster signee at TakeOver: Brooklyn IV in August. He rose to the top of the international circuit after a successful career in professional MMA, which included a winning record in UFC’s welterweight division. Considered one of the top strikers and submission artists in sports-entertainment, Riddle captured championships in the U.K.’s PROGRESS Wrestling and the U.S.-based EVOLVE Wrestling, among other organizations. He made his NXT in-ring debut at a Live Event in Florida in September, defeating Fabian Aichner.

WWE fans recognize Mia Yim from the 2017 and 2018 editions of the Mae Young Classic. After making it to the Second Round in the inaugural tournament, the California native advanced to the Quarterfinals in this year’s event, where she lost to Toni Storm but received “Please sign Mia” chants from the WWE Universe, which led to WWE COO Triple H offering her a contract. A training partner of Shayna Baszler and Jessamyn Duke, Yim made her ring debut in August 2009. She is set to make her NXT TV debut this Wednesday on WWE Network.

Canadian grappler Chelsea Green has competed around the world, wrestling in faraway places like India and Australia, as well as throughout North America. A product of Lance Storm’s Storm Wrestling Academy in Calgary (the same school where Tyler Breeze, Peyton Royce and Oney Lorcan trained), Green first came onto the WWE Universe’s radar as a competitor in the 2015 season of WWE Tough Enough. Before wrestling, Green was a multi-sport athlete who excelled in soccer, volleyball, basketball and track.

Third-generation luchador Humberto Carrillo of Monterrey, Mexico, recently debuted on NXT TV, facing The Forgotten Sons’ Jaxson Ryker in September. Formerly competing under the alias Ultimo Ninja, Carrillo comes from lucha libre’s famed Garza dynasty. WWE fans may remember Carrillo’s uncle, the late Hector Garza, a master of the corkscrew plancha who wrestled in both WCW and WWE at the height of the Monday Night War in the 1990s. Prior to joining the WWE PC, Carrillo won titles throughout Mexico, as well as competed in Japan’s NOAH organization.

Luis Martinez, a 6-foot-5, 270-pound striker from the independent scene, also joins the WWE PC ranks. Initially trained at the Monster Factory in New Jersey, Martinez has wrestled under the ring name Punishment Martinez. Splitting his upbringing between New York and Puerto Rico, Martinez learned the G?j?-ry? form of karate at a young age. Among other accolades, Martinez won Ring of Honor’s Survival of the Fittest tournament in 2017, and he has previously tangled with the likes of NXT’s War Raiders.

Six-foot-two, 230-pound Daniel Vidot of Queensland, Australia, arrives to the WWE PC from the world of professional rugby. He played wing in Australia’s National Rugby League for the Brisbane Broncos, Gold Coast Titans, Canberra Raiders and St. George Illawarra Dragons, as well as competed in English Super League play.

Towering over the rest of the recruits is 7-foot-3, 370-pound Jordan Omogbehin. Originally from Lagos, Nigeria, the imposing Omogbehin played college basketball at the University of South Florida and Morgan State University in Baltimore.

PCO VS BRODY KING NO DISQUALIFICATION MATCH SIGNED FOR MLW’S CHICAGO TV TAPING NOVEMBER 8

CHICAGO –Major League Wrestling (“MLW”) today announced a battle of two brawlers who will send shockwaves throughout Chicago when they collide.  PCO vs. Brody King – no disqualification match has been signed for MLW’s FIGHTLAND card on November 8th in Chicago at Cicero Stadium which will be an MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.

The 6’5” California bounty hunter Brody King battled for the first time with the “French Canadian Frankenstein” PCO in September in MLW.  The highly anticipated match lived up to expectations, with the two brawlers unleashing pure destruction on the other.  

The chaos escalated with the match ultimately being thrown out.  But that wasn’t the end.  As officials tried to separate the two, PCO flew off the top of the rope with a moonsault onto Brody King ringside.  The two continued brawling backstage as chairs, bodies and bottles went flying in every direction.

Now, these two destroyers look to settle their feud once and for all in Chicago in a no disqualification match where there will be a decisive winner.  The question is will it be the man who is not human or the vile 6’5” bounty hunter?
