WWE doctor Chris Amann recently lost his lawsuit against CM Punk and Colt Cabana, and not things may get worse as it was revealed he had physical relations with a superstar—violating a doctor's code of conduct.
According to Deadspin, during a recent trial that saw former WWE wrestlers CM Punk and Colt Cabana recently won a lawsuit against a ringside doctor by the name of Dr. Chris Amann, it was revealed Amann had a physical relationship with one of the female wrestlers—Jillian Hall.
This dilemma began after CM Punk left the WWE in 2014. CM Punk was displeased with the WWE, he had to wrestle with an infection and was, according to Punk, injured by Ryback among other things on Colt Cabana's radio show in 2014. Dr. Chris Amann did not like what he heard from CM Punk on Cabana's show and filed a lawsuit in 2015.
Amann went to court and the trial did not go in his favor from the beginning. It was revealed that he disclosed medical information to other, which doctors are not supposed to do, and while Amann 's attorney tried to seal some things that would be viewable by the public eye, he could not seal was a serious violation that involved former WWE wrestler Jillian Hall.

When Deadspin reached out to WWE regarding this newly uncovered scandal, the company said they did not know of the relationship.
"We were not aware of this. We are investigating the matter and will determine if any action is warranted," says WWE.
Hall worked for the WWE since 2003, when she was signed to the company's developmental territory. She managed to get quite the run in the company, even winning the Diva's Championship before she left in 2010.
It will be interesting to see what happens to Amann after this. The entire trial really put the doctor in an unfavorable light, and now, with proof he violated his profession's code of ethics, there will be a whole other storm for him to deal with.
It will be even more interesting to see what this does to the reputation of wrestling. The world of pro-graps had its share of this kind of conduct in times past. The ring boy scandal of the late 80s, for instance, put a black eye on the sport of wrestling when the story broke. One would expect a doctor to keep his/her trust with their patients due to the fiduciary relationship shared between doctor and patient.
