WWE STATEMENT ON PUNK-FAN INCIDENT ON RAW

By Mike Johnson on 2012-10-09 15:21:04
WWE issued the following statement regarding the incident with CM Punk in the audience at the close of last night's Raw:

“During last night’s Raw televised event, WWE Superstar CM Punk exited the ring into the stands as part of the show. WWE security was unfortunately 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 in 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.”
