WWE downplays incident but fan files police report:
WWE attempted to cover their bases in a press statement, following the assault of an innocent fan by CM Punk at the end of last night’s Raw.
“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.”
As shown in the fan footage these “strikes” were generally just pats, no different from any other crowd segment WWE has done in the past. It was Punk who made the first full on push and Punk who blew up and assaulted an innocent fan without properly assessing the situation, or simply ignoring it like a professional.
Talking to CBS the fan says his face was “a little warm” after the assault and says Punk broke his glasses. The fan claims he will be filing a police report.
