The WWE recently fired shots at CM Punk by releasing a video and statement supporting WWE Dr. Chris Amann in his lawsuit against CM Punk and Colt Cabana. The reason why they are firing back now?
Via Dave Meltzer,
“There’s a reason this all came out.
WWE lost round one to a guy they now believe beat them at their own game and they can’t say that so this is what they are doing.
When they settled, they thought he had them dead to rights. Now they think he outworked them and they don’t take that as well.
Thoughts about who wins the court case is missing the entire point. It’s never going to trial. It’s about revenge for them being worked into caving early. At least that’s their version. They have to use the doctor because they can’t sue.
But they absolutely believe they are in the right.”
So in other words, the WWE is bitter about losing their first legal fight vs CM Punk. It seems that they initially just caved into Punk’s demands and settled with him so after the when Punk went on the Art of Wrestling podcast and opened his mouth about the WWE medical staff, he opened a can of worms. The WWE saw an opportunity to hit CM Punk and released the video for the public to see. The video and the evidence presented may leave some fans with a negative feeling towards Punk.
