The Countdown for WWE’s Doctor, Chris Amann.
Dr. Chris Amann, the WWE doctor who was made infamous by his 2015 lawsuit against Colt Cabana and CM Punk after CM Punk’s appearance on Cabana’s Podcast and recently lost said lawsuit against CM Punk and Colt Cabana, has a bigger problem now.
As of October 2018 (The date is not specific), his contract with WWE will expire and there is no news on if WWE will renew it.
Amann filed a defamation lawsuit against #CMPunk and #ColtCabana in 2015, the trial took place this past June; the trial had taken its toll on not only Punk, but, Cabana as well. Due to the trial, their relationship has been strained, which I wrote about and can be read HERE.
After a week of testimony, the jury found in their favor as the jury found there was no real case against them.
NOW – During the trial and the pre-trial depositions, there was insinuated claims about and from #DrAmann that revealed that he had violated HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) privacy policies and illustrated several instances of incomplete record-keeping.
It only got worse for Dr. Amann.
It was also revealed that he violated one of the most sacred rules of ethics for being a Doctor:
Having a romantic and/or sexual relationship with a patient.
Dr. Amann knew that just by his own testimony, he would self-incriminate, so, he and his lawyers tried to have certain topics avoided, and if they could not be avoided then the records would be sealed. Not all of them were. His third motion, which was filed, was to insure that the defense could not make ANY reference his romantic and sexual relationship with then-WWE wrestler Jillian Hall.
During depositions, by Dr. Amann’s own admission, he had more than just a Doctor/Patient relationship with Hall.
#JillianHall, who also worked under the name, Macaela Mercedes, was a wrestler for WWE from 2003-2010. According to records, Hall and Dr. Amann were actively in a relationship during both of their tenures under the RAW brand.
This story is not a new one, it just went ignored.
It was initially posted on Deadspin.com in JUNE, but, for SOME reason, the press ignored it for the most part.
WWE did tell Deadspin that:
“We were not aware of this. We are investigating the matter and will determine if any action is warranted.”
I am going to say, there are some things about this story that sound strange to me.
Hall and Dr. Amann saw each other while they were both on the RAW brand, so, we can conclude that at the latest, that was 2007, when Hall joined RAW. Hall and Dr. Amann continued their relationship, then on September 10 of 2010, Hall married Mike Farole.
Hall was released from WWE on November 19, 2010 – 70 days later.
Now there are two schools of thought here…and it should be noted that they are ONLY THEORIES.
It is entirely possible that Hall, once married, wanted to settle down and stop performing; she had a lot less matches in 2010, so, it is entirely feasible that she was tapering off of traveling to be with her Husband.
It is also entirely possible that it may have had something to do with her relationship with Dr. Amann.
We may never know.
What We Do Know
Dr. Amann’s contract is up in October of this year, if it is to be renewed, WWE will have to consider:
Dr. Amann breached the code of ethics by having a relationship (sexual or romantic) with a patient.
(Which was confirmed by said patient via her Instagram via using a hypothetical.)
Dr. Amann went after and lost to Colt Cabana and CM Punk. Losing to Colt is one thing, but, considering the bad blood between Punk and WWE….
How will things work out? We shall see.
