CM Punk will be appearing in court for his trial with WWE physician Chris Amann, as reported by Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio. Meltzer said;
“He’s got that [WWE lawsuit], remember he’s going to trial on the 21st [of May]. Unless there’s a delay, yeah May 21st. He should not be fighting, should he? He may ask for a delay. In the middle of a lawsuit, three weeks from a fight, and that’s a lawsuit where he’s going to be cross-examined and gonna testify in. No, that’s a bad deal. Yeah, he’s going to have to get that thing delayed past June 9.”
Recall that CM Punk has a fight with Jackson in Chicago during UFC 255 ON June 9th. Punk lost his debut match in UFC 203 to Mickey Gall back in 2016.
Punk had appeared on Colt Cabana’s podcast in November 2014 to allege that he was mistreated for a back injury and a concussion by WWE’s Dr. Chris Amann. This led to Amann filing a lawsuit against the former WWE Champion.
