Just when you thought it was over. According to a new report from PWInsiderColt Cabana has filed a second lawsuit against CM Punk, after the first one was dismissed by by Judge Daniel Kubasiak of the Cook County Circuit Court in Illinois.

The original lawsuit against Punk accused him of unpaid legal fees and breach of contract, stemming from another lawsuit that was filed earlier this year.

The legal battle between Cabana and Punk stems from an episode of Cabana’s Podcast, “The Art of Wrestling”, where Punk went on the show and aired all of his grievances. You can hear the episode in its entirety below:

CM Punk - The Art of Wrestling Ep 226 w/ Colt Cabana

From the report:

In the new 14-page filing, Cabana again alleges that after the now legendary podcast with CM Punk, he received a demand letter from attorneys representing Dr. Chris Amann, noting, “The Demand Letter asserted that Colton had caused the dissemination of certain false statements to the general public regarding Amman and demanded that Colton immediately remove the Podcast from further distribution and “within fourteen (14) days of the date of this letter you execute a retraction of the false and defamatory statements, in a manner and form to be agreed upon.”

Noting that Brooks has refused to reimburse those costs, Cabana is now asking for damages of at least $200,000 from Punk.  He was asking for $1 Million in punitive and exemplary damages and $200,000 (aka the cost of his representation during the Amann lawsuit) in general damages in the original lawsuit.  He is seeking a jury trial. 

In speaking to a lawyer who follows professional wrestling, he estimated that Punk’s own total legal bill for the Amann lawsuit is likely in the high-six figure or low-seven figure range, based on the amount of time and work that went into building the case.    The same source stated that the new suit that is filed is very similar to the first, just worded differently and now alleging that Cabana wouldn’t have helped Punk at all had they not come to the now-disputed agreement over Punk paying the legal fees.  

Punk is required to respond to the latest lawsuit by 12/28. 

There will be a case conference before the court on 1/4/19 to see where things stand.
