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: Another Former WWE Superstar Advertised For Evolution

Published

on

Fans that attended last night’s NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV were privy to some announcements for WWE’s first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view event, Evolution, emanating from the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York on October 28th. One such advertisement for the event featured Alexa Bliss vs. Trish Stratus, which we now know is officially confirmed (read that here), but there was also another advertisement that revealed the return of a former Women’s Champion.

Michelle McCool, who many of today’s fans probably know best as the wife of The Undertaker, was also advertised for the show according to PWInsider. McCool, who retired back in 2011, is a two-time Divas Champion as well as a two-time Women’s Champion who’s last match came back in January when she entered the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble match at the number 14 spot. She also had the most eliminations in the match, tossing out five other women before being eliminated by Natalya. Before that, her last appearance for WWE came at RAW 25 on January 22nd when she was introduced to the crowd along with a host of other former Women’s Superstars.

At this time it’s not yet known if McCool would be competing at Evolution as the advertisement she appeared in did not feature a specific match.

WWE News: Update On Johnny Gargano Following TakeOver, EC3 Possibly Injured

Published

on

Following last night’s NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV, WWE’s Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative Triple H took part in a post-show media conference call to discuss the event.

Among the topics were the status of Johnny Gargano after his Last Man Standing main event for the NXT Title in which Tommaso Ciampa retained when Gargano delivered a running knee from the stage that sent him catapulting into a production box and falling to the floor. The move led to Ciampa rolling off the stage to his feet to hang onto the championship and it was noted on commentary that Gargano may have suffered a dislocated knee, which Triple H elaborated on, stating that he may have suffered a dislocated kneecap.

‘The Game’ would also discuss EC3, noting that he was “dinged up” during his match with The Velveteen Dream, but some have taken this to mean that ‘The Top One Percent’ might have gotten a concussion. EC3 would take to Twitter after the bout, sporting a swollen eye:

EA’s Take: I don’t necessarily buy Gargano’s injury. Does anyone else think it was amazingly quick how Mauro Ranallo said he had gotten “word” that it might be a dislocated knee? Smells like a setup to me and a possible way to write him off of television for a bit, possibly to cool off the year long feud with Ciampa. That was obviously the planned finish and the medical staff had only been checking on him for what seemed like mere seconds before Mauro said it was a dislocated knee. I don’t know, just doesn’t seem like it was legitimate to me. As for EC3, that one I can see as being real, but then again if he was concussed would they have been putting him in front of a camera for an interview?
