After news broke that both Colt Cabana’ lawsuit against him and his counter-suit were dismissed at their request by the Court in Illinois, CM Punk offered more of his side of the story on Twitter.
It should be noted this wasn’t just Punk cutting loose unprompted. He was tagged in a retweet of the news by former wrestling manager (ECW’s Lou E. Dangerously and Sign Guy Dudley) & current marketing executive Lou D’Angeli, which drew a response from a Cabana fan. It’s that which Punk decided to respond to with his version of events, and to defend himself.
That’s my boy! @CMPunk finally rid of this hanger-on hack. Never have seen anything like this. Help your boy, do everything to get him a job and a “break” and said “boy” seeing he can’t milk his friend anymore...sues him. Ok. https://t.co/y6T2PsPJ2e— Lou DAngeli (@LDAngeli) September 29, 2019
Why’d he ask to settle then? I wanted it to go to trial! Play stupid games, win stupid prizes! Enjoy donating to the eventual “woe is me” go fund me account. pic.twitter.com/n2K5MAAkqG— CM Puck (@CMPunk) September 30, 2019
HE SUED ME. He wanted to end the dumb shit HE started? I asked to speak to him, he declined. I asked to enter mediation, he declined. I offered money, IT WASNT ENOUGH! I never wanted ANY of it. He’s as greedy as you are ignorant to who I am, and fooled by who he is. pic.twitter.com/9JFwwMilUe— CM Puck (@CMPunk) September 30, 2019
I loved the guy. Would’ve done anything for him. And the irony is, if he just would’ve asked for the money, I’d have given it to him. Instead he tried to extort me.— CM Puck (@CMPunk) September 30, 2019
I agree.— CM Puck (@CMPunk) September 30, 2019
Should also be noted there was allegedly at least one tweet Punk deleted in the conversation. What we have here paints a pretty clear picture of his current perspective on the entire situation, though.
Neither Cabana nor his legal team have responded, and they probably won’t.
