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.
WWE champion CM Punk walked out of the "Elimination Chamber" retaining his title and already set his sights on who he wants at Wrestlemania: Chris Brown. Yes, THAT Chris Brown.
Shortly after the event last night, CM Punk took to his Twitter to call out Brown:
Did Chris Brown respond? Oh, you know he did!

So the Doc is on his way to Summerslam. It is strictly because Wrestling is becoming mainstream again. Yea, that's the reason. It is not like the WWE has hit the Attitude era it once did however. CM Punk showing up to Comic-Con and other things have put it back into the mainstream although the punch that it had last month is not there.
There are only 4 matches scheduled for the 3 hour event so it most likely means some pretty long matches.
There was a WWE Axxess event this weekend where the fans get to meet WWE wrestlers. The Summerslam event is being held at the Staple Center in Los Angeles. Aside from Rob Reiner, we wonder what other celebrities will be at the event.....-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Thanks To Our Friend Lawrence For The hook-up!
Well, I guess since he is not even on the card for SummerSlam yet, that he has some time on his hands. The Miz is the latest star to lip synch with Kennan Cahill. This time to "I Came To Play" his wrestling entrance music.
Kennan is not lipsynching as well as he was a year ago. The kid does have a disease n is pulling in a lot of dough from t-shirt sales and personal appearances.
Joining the video half way in is another WWE super star, John Morrison. It takes the image of of Kennan's lip synching and gives you something to watch.

Diagnosis: Puttin' On The Hits
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?
Less than a week after retaining his WWE World Heavyweight Championship, wrestler Edge, real name Adam Copeland, is being forced into retirement.
This is no storyline and for those that think wrestling is fake, take notice. Edge had to have spinal surgery years ago which fused his neck, Edge was able to wrestle but with very little vertebrae to spare. He recovered in 2010 from a torn ACL and has had numerous injuries through his wrestling career.
Lately, Edge has been experiencing numbness is in arms and legs and went to get checked out. He is suffering some paralysis, also known as neuropraxia, and was declined medical clearance from the WWE, forcing Edge to have to retire.
Edge, 37 years old, said goodbye on the WWE show Raw last night, stating "It's better to leave walking than in a wheelchair" seemed humbled and sad at what had taken place.
Some have questioned that if this is a WWE storyline and I can confirm that it is not. They will be having a tribute to Edge on the WWE Smackdown show which is being taped tonight but will air on Friday on the Syfy Network.
Edge leaves the WWE holding the championship belt a record 13 times and for being in what is to be believed one of the best Wrestlemania matches of all time, the Tables, Ladders, & Chairs event. The WWE gave him 15 minutes air time last night to announce his retirement.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Goodbye Rated R Superstar.-Dr.FB
