WWE issued the following statement regarding last night’s incident on Raw where CM Punk struck a fan in the audience.
“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 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.”
As noted earlier, Laura Cole of CBS Sacramento said that the fan released a statement to the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department and complained of knee pain. It is unknown whether the fan will file charges over the incident.
