Colt Cabana was the guest on Wednesday’s Wrestling Observer Live to talk about the trial against Dr. Chris Amann.
There are some interesting tidbits in the interview, including how Punk said that he would train twice a day after the trial. Cabana also wanted fans to know that the infamous podcast with Punk was never intended for fans to rip on Amann on social media.
Cabana said, “I want it to be known that I never wanted for people to tweet this doctor these things. It was never my intention and it kind of upset me when it was happening.”
He continued, “Punk might feel differently but that never was the intention and I know people are doing it now and I’d just like to say, if this made you angry and you have that feeling, then take that energy and instead of negatively tweeting at people [then] positively tweet at myself or Punk or the lawyers who did such a great job or even your favorite wrestler or something. I just like for people to take that energy and use it positively instead of negatively.”
Cabana also talked about some of the toll that the trial took on him. Most notably, he said that his body would shut down at times. Although he and Punk did not have to pay anything to Amann, he said that they still had to pay legal fees throughout these 4 years. Cabana said that his life savings were chopped away due to his lawyer fees.
Alvarez also brought up fans speculating that Punk would go back to WWE after this. Cabana said that Punk fell out of love with wrestling four years ago and this trial likely did not do anything to change his feelings towards the wrestling business.
