CM Punk Getting Heat
CM Punk is getting heat online for calling wrestling the dreaded “fake” word. He told Sports Illustrated:
In pro wrestling, it’s fake. People always get offended by that word. ‘No, we like to say it’s pre-determined.’ For whatever reason, people get angry at fake; pre-determined eases the blow? It’s fake. At the end of the day it doesn’t really mean anything. So after a while, it was, ‘Let’s just really fight and see what happens.’ Now I get to.
I’ve always been surrounded by guys who talked about it. Half of them talk about it; none of them do it. They have their little comfortable safety net doing WWE stuff, I guess. I would much rather give it a shot than just talk about it.

WWE Lawyer Responds To Lawsuits
WWE’s lawyer Jerry McDevitt responded to TMZ about the increasing number of concussion lawsuits being filed against WWE:
He said WWE is “being targeted by attorneys who tell them there’s hundreds of thousands of dollars they can make by joining a class action suit like this.”
“We know these claims are fraudulent, and will fight them. It’s sensational, but if you really look at…what was done specifically to them? There are almost no details as to what they actually suffered as a result of working with WWE.”
