  6. Wow, WWE is stupid to let this happen.


    If Punk wins, then WWE has pretty much admitted that they let him wrestle with a staph infection and routinely use a rigged doctor to force people to work who shouldn't be.


    No matter what happens, Punk (whose fervor is FINALLY dying down) is back in the WWE spotlight.

  7. "Your honor, the defense would like to call Christopher Nowinski to the stand."

  8. If Punk really did go to an independent doctor and have his staph removed. It should be pretty easy to obtain proof of the severity of the infection. If that's the case, I don't see Punk (or Cabana) having to pay anything out.

    ReplyDelete
  9. That just makes me wonder what your thoughts are on The Brothers of Destruction vs. Kronik are.

    ReplyDelete
  10. This could open a whole can of worms for WWE if it leads to more investigations into bad medical treatment.

  11. BREAKING: CM Punk has filed his statement of defense - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51C4VxzK-WM

    That was one of the things that I immediately noticed, Austin bringing up the lack of 'urgency', that Raw isn't must-see TV anymore, and HHH just ignored it and answered around it.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yeah, you do as the circus vet says, human being!

    ReplyDelete
  14. If CM Punk has proof from AJ Lee's doctor that the Staph infection was real, well the case seems pretty cut and dry. If he doesn't, well the case still seems pretty cut and dry.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I have never seen that, but that was great. I hope Punk brings this in as exhibit "A" for his defense.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm sure Dr. Chris Amann will be fine as long as he has Clarence Mason on retainer.

    ReplyDelete
  17. if someone makes a defamatory statement, and I repeat / publish it on my newspaper / TV show / blog / podcast, I have also defamed them.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'M AFRAID I'VE GOT SOME BAAAAAD NEWS. ......Your career is over.

    ReplyDelete
  19. You could be talking about alot of guys on this show.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I guess...Colt never said it was true or untrue he just gave him a forum to speak as far as I know.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Think about what you are saying. Are you seriously saying that it is a defence to defamation for a newspaper to say : "I didn't say it was true - I just printed without comment the allegation that Quince McVahon was a senile old fool!"

    ReplyDelete
  22. same reason why the publisher of the chris kyle book is also being sued by Jesse Ventura for defamation as Timothy says below

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hindsight says Punk should've just mentioned him as "the main doctor".

    The stupid thing is, Dr. Amann is employed. He can't lose business unless he leaves WWE. If Punk testifies that what he said did happen and that's his side of the story, and that he has the right to be outspoken about malpractice, it's not going to look good for this asshole.

    ReplyDelete
  24. What in the hell are they doing with Rollins? What's the plan? He's only their top heel and the only guy they've managed to build up without screwing it up...

    In other news, WWE wishes Dr. Amman the best in his future endeavors. The least thing they need is the medical can of worms to be cracked open.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I was shocked to see so many matches packed into 2 hours (factor in 4 matches taped for Main Event, and this was a very wrestling heavy taping, even if most of the matches were 4-5 minutes). Outside of the atrocious Big Show/Rowan match (2-minute match that was 2-minutes too long) and R-Truth getting a win over Barrett, everything went by so quick that it rarely allowed a chance to get boring.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I don't know US libel law but if it's similar to the UK that wouldn't really cover Punk as, if Amann is 'the main doctor', he would still be identifiable.

    Quit freaking out and take a Z-pak, Chris. You'll be fine.

    ReplyDelete
  29. As much as it would be cool to think Montreal was a work. It doesn't explain Vince getting decked in the face back in the lockerooms afterwords

    ReplyDelete
  30. Dr. Amman has suffered severe alienation of affection from the WWE Universe.

    ReplyDelete
  31. WWE now has control over their employee's private affairs?

    ReplyDelete
  32. There are a lot of things that annoy me about modern day WWE, but nothing more than the way they book the IC Title/Champion. If Vince truly can't remember how useful a strong midcard title can be to building the next generation of stars, building a compelling midcard and putting on exciting matches and feuds then he really is totally senile.

    ReplyDelete
  33. And they've booked the IC champ the same way for so long. They never deviate from the formula and wonder why the belt isn't help elevate anyone. I'm still convinced that anything good the WWE does is all just a fluke.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Cut and dry, unlike what the good Doc did to Punk's infection.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Colt better prep some topnotch "Jewish Lawyer" jokes.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Why would WWE let this happen? I am pretty sure not having CM Punk and Chris Amann testifying under oath in court about WWE's medical practices is worth a lot more than $1 million to them.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Only just realised that Amann was on NXT talking about Sami Zayn's injury, they're giving him a push!

    ReplyDelete
  38. What about Ryback's lawsuit?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Horrible, but again I don't think it's as bad as it's made out to be. I've seen dozens of WCW matches that trump it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. It has nothing to do with the WWE. They cannot stop Amann from filing a lawsuit if he feels his professional credibility is being hurt by falsified statements.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Some baffling booking decisions, as we've come to expect.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Highlight was the reaction Rhyno got. Watch the dad in the front row put 'earmuffs' on his kid to chant 'Holy Sh!t!'

    ReplyDelete
  43. These cases are notoriously tough to prove. There are four criteria that ALL must be met.

    1) a false statement purporting to be fact; 2) publication or communication of that statement to a third person; 3) fault; and 4) damages, or some harm caused to the person or entity who is the subject of the statement.



    This is damage control from Amann so his side of the story is on the public record. That said, given how WWE works, I'd love for this to hit the discovery phase just to see who else comes out of the woodwork. This could backfire on Amann really badly.

    ReplyDelete
  44. All Vince needs to do is tell Amann "don't sue, I'll owe you one, pal!"

    ReplyDelete
  45. I would counter with a malpractice suit.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Good. I hope Punk files numerous counterclaims and files a 3rd party cross complaint against the WWE. I guarantee you this gets settled before it goes to depositions. No way Vince et.al. will want any of further dirty laundry on this stuff to be exposed.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Man, I can't WAIT to see the Undertaker come back and give Bray his comeuppance for all of the.... huh, what is it that Bray's been doing again?

    ReplyDelete
  48. True, WWE cannot legally stop Amann from filing a lawsuit and taking it to court, but it's naive to think that they don't have other avenues of applying pressure to Amann to make him drop the case.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Exactly. He will effectively drop this within months. Book it.

    ReplyDelete
  50. As a fellow Illinoisan, I invite Mr. Punk to countersue in my home of Madison County, IL. We hand out awesome settlements and are openly hated by many large companies!

    ReplyDelete
  51. "thankfully the ending to Monday's show was a bit more interesting than trying to figure out exactly when Bryan turned into a whiny loser who is using his contractual obligations to get back in the title picture instead of just winning matches like he did last year."

    ....huh? Bryan's path to the WM main event started with a clean loss to Bray at the Rumble, then complaining about not being in the Rumble itself, and then was finalized by flooding the ring area with fans and holding the show hostage until he got what he wanted.
    It was an amazing storyline, but I don't think anyone has ever gotten to the WrestleMania main event by winning matches LESS than how Daniel Bryan did last year.

    ReplyDelete
  52. No it didn't. It started by pinning Cena in the main event of Summerslam, then beating Orton over and over but getting screwed out of the title. Then he kept getting beaten up until he fought back and did the Occupy Raw thing. It started because he had proven he was the best but got screwed by the Authority, not because he got eliminated early in the Rumble and then they came up with a backup plan.


    In hindsight, last time might have been better than last year.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I hear a young Steph tried the belt on in 94, and Vince thought, you know...

    Seriously, blame the Attitude Era, as that's when all titles but the World jumped the shark.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Now if only TNA stepped it's game up and lit a fire under....oh. yeah, we're doomed.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Absolutely ridiculous in the Barrett match. R-Truth has NO value at this point... just have Barrett pin him and then have Barrett attack Ambrose... have a wild brawl to the back. Or Ambrose attacks Barrett after the match since that's the "wild card" part of his character. Anything but a stupid distraction finish which makes everybody look bad. GAAAAH!

    ReplyDelete
  56. And did anyone knew or cared about a guy names "Del Wilkes"? And how should you know him? He was in WCW and then...away....and then suddenly there.

    ReplyDelete
  57. The bro dude they cut to a few times in white who was marking out like a maniac.

    I knew about Rhyno from the spoilers and I still loved it.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I never saw him get hit, did you? And what better way to add fuel to the story than going all out, right?

    ReplyDelete
  59. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FaQFPWeAYc



    "Get ready, it's time for 7 hours of Triple H!"

    ReplyDelete
  60. "If nothing else, that segment proved that American healthcare is better than Russian, as Cena's eye went from the focal point of the match to ignored in the span of a week."


    Okay, that was pretty funny.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Reminds me of the 9 / 11 conspiracy theories. You're giving McMahon far too much credit as an "evil mastermind" here. The guy runs a (formerly) successful wrestling promotion. He's not some kind of Svengali genius.
