Exactly. Plus this could continue on longer than the original suit for which the legal fees were for.

Has anyone suggested it's a work yet? Punk showing up at "All In" to attack/pipe bomb his BFF for suing him would be epic.

That's moronic. How is that in any way just?

Also, given that Cabana could have raised in defence that Punk went off-script, how could the same lawyer represent both?

I don't like either of them. Matt Riddle could beat both of them.

Wasn’t Dave just referring to another story from his own life? I didn’t get the feeling he was saying Punk and Cabana has sued each other before.

Matt Riddle could probably beat anybody but Brock.

Thanks Commish. I'll need to listen again; I was multi-tasking.

It's Cabana's podcast right?

It wasn't broadcast live, so is he alleging Punk forced him to run the episode?

Is a talkshow host legally responsible for what a guest says?

Wouldn't that make any journalist who holds a microphone in somebody's face the target of lawyers, if that person lies?

Hi Duke,

I don't think that Colt gave the disclaimer that CM describes below, but I don't have the patience to listen to the whole thing. Colt goes through the first 8-9 minutes of his shows plugging himself, lol. I wouldn't have thought that a disclaimer mattered, but I don't know anything about that sort of thing.

Regardless, I don't think that would prevent whoever was behind the lawsuit to file one anyway, just for the mere sake of harassing Punk which could have been part of the motive behind it as Rudeboy posted. The end result worked in a way because of the most recent problems. VKM and/or someone in Sports Entertainment really must have been ticked off big time to worry about something so small.

Is it because he provided the platform for Punk to say that the doctor was negligent?

WWE messing with Punk. The Doctor suffered no damages yet was suing anyway. Presumably his suit was being funded by WWE. I'm surprised the judge didn't throw out the suit before it went to trial.

It appears that Cabana does bear some legal responsibility, given that the law allowed for him to be sued.


Cabana could have canned the episode with Punk, or edited things out. He had options. He chose to run the podcast. For him to now ask the court to make Punk responsible for his legal bill doesn't seem right.

Any further word on WWE PervDoc Amman facing any kind of repercussions for having sex with a patient?

Like I said, there's gotta be a reason lawyers tell us we gotta run these disclaimers. Liability hinges on details like that.

While the jurisdiction of where it was recorded, disseminated, etc could effect whether it’s a legal issue at publication, it becomes something that warrents adjudication when Amman present the Cease and Desist, and Colt leaves it up/disseminates it subsequent to receipt of the C&D.

At the end of the day, anybody can sue anybody for any reason, and right or wrong, you can f*uck with someone and cost them a lot of money whether you win or lose. And even if you win, you still gotta collect within an allotted time under statutes of limitations. It's f*uckery but you've gotta be in it for the love of the game.

Exactly. Forget about the legal liability, etc.
The financial backer(s) of this lawsuit set out to cause harm regardless of the outcome. Even though Punk and Colt were cleared, the result is this most recent news which is pretty serious.

For further irony, the reason some states (like Illinois) don’t allow for legal costs to be recouped when a defendant receives a favorable ruling is to protect against monied entities from having disparate legal system advantages - as they don’t want the “average” citizen to fear the cost of pursuing legal recourse against a rich person/entity.
