Update: WWE releases statement on CM Punk

In last nights episode of WWE RAW, CM Punk went into the crowd during an event. Fans were touching him, and one guy went to far when Punk turned around and slugged the guy.

In a statement to TMZ, WWE said,

WWE security was unfortunately not in the appropriate place at the time. Given CM Punk’s persona as a ‘bad guy’ fans were naturally heckling him, but unfortunately a few fans began shoving him and one struck him in the kidney and on the back.

“WWE regrets that proper security measures were not in place, and CM Punk apologizes for reacting in the heat of the moment.”


The WWE star was going to have a match with Vince McMahon, but instead he ended up attacking him before the match officially started. At that time Ryback came out into the ring to help McMahon, Punk then ran into the stands.

With the above being “all part of the show” it is what happened next that has people talking and not so sure about.

Apparently fans were touching Punk as he was in the crowd as you can see in the video – but well, what could he expect? That is pretty common if you choose to go into where the fans are.

It went too far when a fan pushed him one to many times and Punk after giving him a dirty look the first time turned around and slugged the guy.

The only issue with Punk’s punch? Well in the video it seems like he hit the wrong guy.
