CM Punk made a career of proving doubters wrong. After all, look at what a guy his size was able to do in the big man dominated world of WWE where he still holds a record Brock Lesnar is about to break. He hasn’t wrestled in a match since leaving WWE but All In isn’t out of the question because you never know what can happen.
But Punk might be facing an even bigger obstacle in his career soon enough because he has the trial with WWE’s doctor Chris Amann coming up very soon as well as a fight against Michael Jackson at UFC 225 in the same span of time.
“CM Punk’s fighting in 2 weeks and his trial starts on Tuesday, how do you do that?” Dave Meltzer questioned on Wrestling Observer Radio. “I mean when you’re in a trial you got to be in freaking court he needs to be training right now.”
“He can’t be in court all day… I guess he can be in court all day and train at night I suppose he could do that. But my god, plus he trains in Milwaukee and his case is in Illinois, I think in Chicago and Chicago is 90 minutes from Milwaukee I don’t know about this.”
“I’m still flabbergasted this thing is going to trial but it appears that it is. The trial is now supposed to start on Tuesday, it doesn’t mean it will but that’s where things stand right now. I just can’t believe he has this court case literally right before his fight.”
I’m not saying CM Punk doesn’t have what it takes to pull off a victory in both his trial and his fight because when he puts his mind to something there’s little convincing him otherwise. But it will be really difficult for him to keep up a training regiment and take care of business in this lawsuit against Dr. Chris Amann at the same time.
