CM Punk and WWE Address ‘Crowd Incident’ At Raw On Monday

Posted by Matt Boone October 10, 2012 9 Comments

Following an incident involving CM Punk and fans at Monday night’s Raw event in Sacramento, California, WWE issued an official statement through its official website expressing regret that proper security measures were not set. The WWE Champion also gave his side of the story.

WWE’s official statement reads: “During Monday night’s Raw televised event, WWE Superstar CM Punk exited the ring and into the stands as part of the show. Unfortunately, WWE security was 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. Other than this isolated incident, WWE always provides proper security to ensure the safety of our fans and our performers.”

“I think the whole situation sucks,” Punk told “It’s an unfortunate and isolated incident. I was up in the stands, surrounded.”

“Somebody said, ‘let’s push him down the stairs,’” Punk explained. “I got hit in the ribs three times. I was getting shoved and I was getting punched…Then I started getting tagged in the back of the head. Unfortunately, I lashed out in the heat of the moment and I apologize. I’m really just glad nobody was hurt.”

      Good for WWE for admitting their mistake on security. It wasn’t CM Punk’s fault. As can be seen in YouTube and in the report, Punk was being abused by some fans until he couldn’t hold on and hits that stupid fan. It’s human nature. I say the fan got what he deserved. He knows he shouldn’t hit a wrestler or anybody! It’s common sense!

        You do realize that the fan cm punk hit was an innocent fan who never struck him.

          I saw the video the so called innocent guy pushed punk. Then he put his shades on and elbowed punk while putting them on. Watch the youtube tape again and you’ll see it.

            I stand corrected. The innocent guy is really innocent, let’s call him Jake. It was the guy behind Jake that hit CM punk in the head, which provokes Punk. Here’s the video. My apologies for Jake.

      i’ve been to a few wwe shows. the last thing that i ever wanted to do at a wwe show, or any other pro wrestling event, is physically provoke the wrestlers or interfere with their performance. yelling to them and at them, making gestures, holding signs, even shaking or slapping a hand…that’s acceptable. striking them, throwing stuff at them, hitting them, saying dumb shite like ‘lets throw ‘im down some stairs’ and/or interfering with their performance in any way….that’s unacceptable and is in my opinion the very worst a pro wrestling fan can be. wwe’s security wasnt in the right place at the wrong time but it’s the fan(s) that surrounded Punk that are truely at fault. I gotta side with CM Punk on this one…
