Former WWE Star CM Punk Accuses Vince McMahon of Funding Lawsuit Against Him
Former WWE star CM Punk is just a couple days away from his MMA debut against Mickey Gall at UFC 203 this Saturday. But, as it turns out, he’s still being plagued by his pro wrestling past.
During an interview with Ron Kruck for Inside MMA, Punk accused WWE CEO Vince McMahon of funding a lawsuit against him. Although he doesn’t state the specific lawsuit being filed against him, it’s likely the lawsuit filed by WWE doctor Chris Amann, who is suing Punk and wrestler Colt Cobana over comments made on Cabana’s podcast accusing Amann of negligence. It’s a pretty entertaining interview, complete with a ridiculous Vince McMahon impression. That said, it’s kind of surprising he openly talked about the lawsuit, despite not naming specifics. Anyway, it’s an interview with checking out, as he goes into being listed as an underdog at UFC 203, getting advice from Brock Lesnar, and addressing his doubters. Watch the video below:
