Earlier this week, an article by Deadspin.com revealed that WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann filed a motion to avoid his relationship with former WWE star Jillian Hall from being used in his lawsuit against Phil “CM Punk” Brooks and Scott “Colt Cabana” Colton.
The article, which featured Hall confirming the relationship, noted how this is considered a violation of the code of ethics involving physicians and patients.
WWE apparently wasn’t aware of it the relationship between Amann and Hall and issued the following statement to The Wrestling Observer/Figure Four Online:
“We were not aware of this. We are investigating the matter and will determine if any action is warranted.”
Nia Jax on facing Ronda Rousey
Yahoo Sports is featuring an interview with RAW Women’s Champion Nia Jax where she talks about facing Ronda Rousey tonight at the Money in the Bank PPV.
“I know it sounds so cheesy, but I am honored I get this opportunity to step into the ring with a woman who has pioneered so much for women in sports. Ronda has gone out there and been unapologetically herself. She is who she is. I am so excited and nervous. I’m using those nerves to fuel me as well. It’s going to be such an amazing match and I can’t wait for people to see what Ronda Rousey is capable of and what we’re capable of doing together. It’s such a powerhouse match.”
The article also features Jax commenting on her weight being announced before her matches, something not commonly done with female talent.
“It’s something [WWE senior producer] Johnny Ace [Laurinaitis] mentioned to me and we went to Vince [McMahon] and we talked about it. That’s something that’s tough for a woman, sharing their weight. Me sharing my weight and me being the person I am, Vince agreed with me on this, it’s embracing who you are. [Someone who is] 272 pounds is a very heavy person and it’s a lot of force that these women are taking. It incorporated not only the message that I’m sending about my body, but also a character thing. It was really cool because when we talked about it and I saw his vision behind it, I realized I would be the only one in this division where you’d be able to see this force.”
