Former WWE Superstars CM Punk and Colt Cabana scored a huge victory this week as the jury ruled in favour of the duo in legal battle against WWE Dr. Chris Amann. The verdict stated that neither Punk nor Cabana owes any damages to Dr. Amann after the 4-year defamation lawsuit against them.

MMAFighting recently caught up with Punk ahead of his fight against Mike Jackson at UFC 225 in Chicago on Saturday (June 9, 2108).

On his rumoured surprise appearance at ALL IN on September 1, 2018:

“I’m not addressing it. It’s not happening.”

If he has a wrestling offer on the table as of late:

“Nobody has ever asked me – like straight up asked me to come wrestle for them. Nobody. There’s been ‘oh hey, if you ever wanna do anything’ and I know what this is gonna sound like to a lot of people and everyone is gonna find a way to spin it.”

If he is open to wrestling provided he gets a real offer:

“I don’t think so but it’s a hard question to answer. A lot has happened this week. I can definitely tell you if you asked me that question a week ago when felt like I still had a foot in the grave so to speak, the answer is no I don’t want anything to do with it. I feel like I’m out and the future has yet to be written. It’s a wide open book, it’s my story to tell. I’m just being real.”

Punk concluded, “I’m not gonna sit here and be like ‘no, no.’ Something might come up, some fun might be had but right now my head and my mind and my focus is 100 percent on Saturday and fighting so does that mean fighting beyond Saturday? To me, yes.”

The longest reigning WWE Champion of The Modern Era also discussed his upcoming UFC fight, winning the defamation lawsuit against WWE Dr. Chris Amann and more.
