Just last week, Punk ruled out starting a podcast. He responded to a fan who asked him to start his own podcast, which he shot down. Fast forward to this week, Ron Funches, took to Twitter to ask Punk if he would be on his podcast but took back the offer by joking about the last time that Punk was on a podcast. This was a reference to Punk’s appearance on Cabana’s “Art of Wrestling” podcast from November of 2014.
Punk responded to the tweet with the following harsh response that appears to be a shot at Cabana. He wrote, “Promise not to sue me for being a good friend (then sign a legally binding agreement that you’re not a greedy steaming pile of ungrateful snake sh**) and I’ll consider it.”
Promise not to sue me for being a good friend (then sign a legally binding agreement that you’re not a greedy steaming pile of ungrateful snake shit) and I’ll consider it.

Due to the comments Punk made on this podcast, a lawsuit pitted Punk and Cabana against WWE doctor Chris Amann. In the end, the jury ruled that they are in favor of Punk and Cabana on all counts filed by Amann.
Shortly after this lawsuit, Cabana sued Punk for breach of contract and fraud. The lawsuit alleged that Punk made a promise to help him with his legal bills during the lawsuit against the WWE doctor.
Cabana says that Punk told him that his legal bills would be “100% covered.” Cabana claimed that his former friend has not kept his promise.
