CM Punk and Colt Cabana Win Court Case Over WWE’s Doctor Chris Amann

on

The libel & slander jury trial with WWE’s Doctor Chris Amann vs. CM Punk & Colt Cabana wrapped today in Cook County, Illinois with the jury ruling in favor of Punk & Cabana on all counts filed by Amann. The former WWE Superstars will not have to pay anything to Amann.

It was noted that Cabana looked relieved after the verdict while Punk & wife AJ Lee were crying. Amann was said to be staring off blankly.

The trial kicked off last Wednesday over comments Punk made about Amann on Cabana’s “Art of Wrestling” podcast in 2014, a few months after his WWE departure. The jury deliberated just a few hours today. Amann was seeking more than $4 million in damages.

No word yet on what is next for the parties involved but we will keep you updated. Amann remains employed by WWE while Cabana continues to work indies. Punk has not wrestled since leaving WWE but he will return to the Octagon this Saturday at UFC 225 in Chicago, facing Mike Jackson, who also has a record of 0-1-0.

Below are tweets from Chicago Tribune reporter Gregory Pratt, ESPN’s Brett Okamoto and Wrestle Zone’s Nick Hausman, who were in the court room today:
