Just four days before he does battle inside of the Octagon at UFC 225, CM Punk walked away from the Cook County Courthouse with a major victory.
Punk, birth name Phillip Brooks, and his friend, indie wrestler and commentator Colt Cabana (Scott Colton), were defendants in a six-day defamation lawsuit filed against them by WWE Dr. Christopher Amann. Amann was seeking nearly $4 million damages for comments Punk made on Cabana’s Art of Wrestling podcast.
After two hours of deliberation, a jury decided that neither man was guilty of any of the charges filed by Dr. Amann. Punk and his wife, former WWE Divas Champion and best-selling author AJ Lee (April Mendez) reportedly met in a tearful embrace after the verdict was read.
Punk will have home court advantage when he competes against Mike Jackson in a welterweight contest to open up the PPV portion of UFC 225 this coming Saturday inside of Chicago’s United Center, just miles away from where this case took place.
