09 Oct Did WWE Champ CM Punk Hit A Fan On Live TV Or Was It Scripted?
Like most people who are not wrestling fans, you have to wonder if what happened after a WWE show with WWE champ CM Punk was real or scripted. The video and photos appear to show this as real. Maybe.
After a match with WWE owner Vince McMahon where fellow wrestlers Ryback and John Cena beat on Punk, the champ ran into the crowd where after Vince challenged Punk to face Ryback or Cena in the next pay-per-view “Hell In A Cell”. After that, a fan slaps Punks arm and then Punk turns around and backhands a fan in the face and then pushes him face first away from him. It was not the same fan that hit him however.
I thought the guy was totally set up but a photo of the victim and a reporter from Sacramento’s own Channel 13 news interviewed the fan before police questioned him regarding the event.
A Laker fan in Sacramento? Wowsa. BTW, thanks to Rico from Fresno, California for contacting us about this story and for PWInsider.com as well.
Punk has made a habit of picking fights with fans over the years. It has got him into trouble before as a year ago while the WWE was doing a world tour, he called a fan a gay slur, which you can see in the video below.
So far, WWE has yet to comment on the altercation. Punk has not tweeted an apology like he did after the gay slur. So was it real or scripted? Tune in as Funkenberry gets RAW. Wait….I didn’t mean for it to sound like that….-DocFB
UPDATE: It was real and WWE and CM Punk have since apologized for it staying security was not around Punk when they should have been.
