CM Punk Gets Physical With A Fan In The Closing Segment Of WWE Raw

There was an incident in the crowd involving WWE Champion CM Punk at this week’s WWE Raw. Once Punk retreated to the crowd to avoid Ryback, Vince McMahon was on the mic. As Vince was speaking, Punk connected with a fan to the face and shoved him as the broadcast was going off the air. The entire incident was on-camera but Punk returned to the ring for the dark match main event.

Embedded is video footage of the altercation:

    Way to go, Punk! These douchebag fans need to learn to separate TV from reality.

    • Alex

      Did you even look at the video? The fan didn't do anything. He never laid a hand on Punk. Punk is 100% in the wrong here.

      • Nick

        He did bump into him slightly, right before he turned around and hit him. Still a bit of an over-reaction.

    • James

      It’s obviously both of their faults. I mean punk shouldn’t have hit the fan but also the fan shouldn’t have tapped punk so hard.

  • Tommy*Chaos

    I kind of wonder what kind of punishment CM Punk will get for this. Lawsuit Pending?

  • bryan

    Does anyone know WHY Punk attacked him? What was the fan doing?

    • Alex

      The fan didn't do anything. Some little kid tapped Punk in the shoulder and it seems like Punk thought it was the man behind him and struck. Either way it was still in the wrong as it wasn't a violent tap the kid did. It's not surprising though. As much as I love Punk he has a long history of being a douchbag to the fans.

      • Luke

        No there was a guy behind him that kept pushing him and do he clocked him
        He was trying to sell being scared about rayback and the fans were bring difficult… WWE security’s fault, if they knew he was going into the crowd, they should have protected him better

  • The Dude

    Poor guy. Good thing he didn’t hit that little kid though lol

  • Remi

    The shades of bad luck! haha

  • eagle38

    Can you say lawsuit!

  • Mohammad Abulawi

    the fan didn't do anything WTF is punk problem i hope he get's sued don't get me wrong im a a HUGE fan of punk but come on this, this was uncalled for shame on you punk.

    • The Cowboy

      Punctuation is your friend.

    • Simon Veitch

      Did you see the fan not do anything? I had a few mates at the show who text me when they saw it happen and said the guy hit punk a few times before punk lashed back at him. I'm not condoning punks behaviour of hitting a fan, but some fans need to learn to back off and separate fiction from reality

    • Patrick Peralta

      I agree the fan to Punk's right hit him…the fan with the glasses never touched him at most his arm bumped Punk accidently as he was putting on his glasses..what Punk did was uncalledfor the Last thing WWe doesn't need is another Lawsuit especially by a Fan.

      WWE is all ready dealing with a Lawsuit by TNA they don't need more.

    • Risendevil

      Not if they have disclaimer signs up all over the place like they do in every arena I’ve ever been in.

  • hurrigame

    Never mind. Just saw the video. Can't wait to hear the explanation from VKM.

  • Drew

    Wow, this could become a very serious situation

  • gibbons08

    It was prolly a local worker put there to put more heat on Punk

    • Brian

      I hope it was, but if not then Vince is gonna go completely ballistic

    • Alex

      If it was a work, then one of the announcers would've said something.

  • http://www.12ozprophet.com Dangerous Lee

    Poor guy. He was just putting on his glasses. Punk doesnt like it when people put on glasses?

  • dektcmpunx

    work?

  • Code

    I see Punk losing at HIAC…SHAME :(

    • Alex

      Yeah if this ends up becoming as big a deal as it seems, Vince will strip the title off Punk to avoid any further embarrassment. Just look at when RVD got arrested for having marijuana while holding both the WWE & ECW world titles.

  • Kleck

    I hope that was a local talent. What a hit though. Punk didn’t like his shades

  • woolf

    i think that if this is real that punk mistook him for the guy slapping him on the shoulder. you can see someone hits punk on the shoulder

    • Alex

      Yeah it was a kid, but still no reason to hit someone over a tap. Every wrestler that stands in the crowd gets tapped on the shoulder by fans. It wasn't like it was a violent attack on Punk. Either way, Punk was in the wrong here.

      • Jehricoholic

        Really being pushed repeatedly while standing on stairs isn’t good enough reason to slap someone? Granted he got the wrong guy, but he can’t tell exactly who it was, but where is security? It’s a joke that security was nowhere in sight until after.

  • bestintheworldrep

    Punk attacked the fan because supposely he pushed punk in the back of the head!

  • Ethan

    Punk hit the wrong fan! Poor guy should get his money back and an apology at least

  • woolf

    someone hits punk on the shoulder, maybe it was a hard hit or something and punk thought it was the guy behind him

    • Alex

      It was a little kid that tapped him. If Punk considers that a hard hit, then he's in the wrong business.

  • What to think?!

    Heyman is involved; the crowd is possibly involved. So ya' never know if this was a work or shoot.

    "Do you even know when your lying or telling the truth?"

    -Vince Mcmahon to Paul Heyman

    Vince mentioned how the fans are the reason the WWE is great in the first promo. What better way to end Raw then the highest disrespect you can show a fan. Put your hands on them.

    P.S. Great way to show Kelly Kelly the finger by flirting with A.J. on live TV Cena. I personally thought it was the funniest thing you've ever done.

  • @Joseph_Gomes

    Theres no “poor guy” about it. I was a few sections over (and tweeted live as the aforementioned occurred @Joseph_Gomes) & the fan repeatedly shoved Punk from behind and taunted Punk despite multiple warnings to knock it off. The guy was lucky all he caught was a glancing elbow & a shove.

  • OneShotDeal

    People who wear shades indoors deserve a good slap.

    ^Onscreen explaination he SHOULD use. Volcanic heat.

    But yeah, it's a work, it's gotta be a work.

  • Cristiano

    POrque a WWE tá usando tanto essas dark match?

  • Synyster

    VKM is going to flip if this is real…

  • Daniel

    From sources, the guy kept grabbing the belt. CM Punk told him to back off. The guy pushed CM Punk in the back of the head, then said "Deal with it". After the cameras were believed to hard off CM Punk, he turned around and decked the guy.

    Why give an apology?

    • Howard Stern

      Cause he represents someone else's company.

  • Guest

    Dude just got decked by CM Punk. Give him an autograph and video evidence and he'll be a happy camper.

  • James

    Reports saying the guy hit him on the back of the head just before the shot focused on punk. Hard to say but I don’t think it’s a work (guy actually lifting his kid out of harms way). Just when VKM thought it couldn’t get any worse…

  • Adamtrace

    Title reign over

  • Ashley

    apparently the guy Punk hit filed a report with police. Doesn't sound like a work. This could be very serious for Punk.

  • @Joseph_Gomes

    However Punk may have struck the wrong guy. All I know is that someone repeatedly got physical with Punk.

  • Matt

    def not a work. kid slapped him on the shoulder and punk reacted to the guy next to the kid puttin on his shades. makes me think even if punk saw the kid do it, would he of pie faced the kid? huge punk fan here but this is totally unnecessary. action needs to be taken against punk. If I was the guy, u better believe i'd be talking to corporate about filing a lawsuit until they made up for these actions.

  • trer

    if it was a work, then they would not have cut away from it on tv and went back to vince in the ring quickly. if it was a work, then it was a waste because they didnt put it on camera.

  • Willie

    C.M Punk: Just Get Him A All Access pass to Wrestlemania 29 lol he take it…….

  • Willie

    Just Get Him A All Access pass to Wrestlemania 29 lol he take it

  • Robert olley

    Whoa that was uncalled for the fan didn’t touch punk at most he might have touched his arm or something but no need at all to elbow him and launch for him wwe champ or not he needs to be punished

  • HATER

    Punk should have not reacted that way and shif the guy was pushing or slapping him he should of had security escorted out and arrested

  • Hitman310

    Anyone the wears sun glasses inside a building deserves to be punched like that guy.

  • sonny morrell

    i never did like punk.and i dislike him even more.this is not the first incident between a fan and punk.cm punk is a piece of s##t.i hope the fan sues wwe and punk.

  • Moe

    It's a work, come on people!

  • Kevin

    I read on a Yahoo story that CM Punk actually got the wrong guy, and from that video above, it would appear that is the case. It looks like the guy Punk hits with a spinning backfist is just standing there looking over Punk's head when Punk hits him.

  • Janice

    That video didn't show what really happened. Punk was shoved and hit in the back of the head. He hit the wrong guy, but I don't blame Punk for getting mad.
