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.
Cm Punk responded to Chris Brown tweet "#NotnoPunk" by simply replying "#aintnowomanbeater" as the WWE is finally covering the controversy days after us and other media outlets covered it.
Brown tweeted that WWE needs ratings and that's why CM Punk is going after him. WWE did not mention the Brown/Punk war until Tuesday, missing out mentioning it on its flagship show Raw on Monday Night which does better ratings wise on USA then its Smackdown show on the Syfy network.
Brown said he that last night will be the last time he mentions Punk at all stating it is too time consuming for someone who has his own issues to deal with.
According to people on our Facebook Fan Page, this is all a set up by Vince McMahon, owner of the WWE for a Wrestlemania match between the two. Never mind the fact that they are already promoting Punk versus Chris Jericho for his title already.
For some reason, I believe this was just Punk being Punk and it is favoring the WWE.
I think Brown is too much of a wuss to fight Punk so I don't believe it is an angle by the WWE. If it is, or becomes one, I would LOVE to team with Punk against Brown and the other celebrity blogger...Perez what's his name. "Straight Edge" tag team.
So, what do you think? Are we getting suckered in by an angle or is this real beef?-DocFB
The cause of death of "Macho Man" Randy Savage who died last week in a car accident, is still unknown. It was first reported that he had a heart attack while driving and veered off the road. He died later at the hospital.
Lanny Poffo, Randy's brother stated he did have a heart attack that caused the crash. it will take 4-6 weeks for a complete autopsy.
WWE chairman Vince McMahon and Hulk Hogan have expressed public condolences to Randy and his family. No word yet if WWE Raw will feature more than a tribute to him at the start of the show.-DrFB
Diagnosis: Can you dig it?
Linda McMahon has resigned from World Wrestling Entertainment to run for a senate seat against Christopher Dodd in the 2010 election. Wow.
Linda, who is married to the owner of the WWE, Vince McMahon made the announcement this morning. Linda will be running as a republican. People are describing as someone with deep pockets who can challenge Dodd in the election. A former Connecticut governor and senator Lowell Weicker is on the WWE's board of directors.
So will we see Linda putting a headlock on Christopher Dodd and that big hair of his? Will she put the STFU on him? Only time will tell, but if it ended up in the ring, we would pick Linda because Vince would get involved and for a man in his 60's, he still pretty ripped. We can only wonder how far Linda's political asperations will reach.-Dr.FB
Andrew Martin, better known to wrestling fans as "Test" was found dead in his apartment in Tampa, Florida last night.
His neighbor saw Andres laying motionless for hours when checking on him thru his window. She then called police. Police right now are saying there is no foul play in Martin's death.
As "Test", Martin was involved in a love triangle with Stephanie McMahon (the owner Vince McMahon's daughter) and Triple H (the wrestler who has been married to Stephanie McMahon for years) which was one of the top story lines in WWE history.
WWE has already released a statement sending condolences to Martin's family and friends.
33 years old. The guy was in rather good shape. I should not speculate but I will; I will be surprised if drugs did not play some part in this. For the record, WWE has a wellness program in place for wrestlers in WWE and a 3 strikes your out approach to the whole thing.
We will keep you posted as the story unfolds....-Dr.FB
