Granted I am no longer a wrestling fan. I was back in my younger days with Bret Hart and Hulk Hogan but I cam across a yahoo article and watch the video and this is ridiculous.

I would have friggin tackled CM Punk or whatever that girl behind dude's name is and ruined Monday Night Raw.

Should be a nice check from CM Punk and WWE for the young man though.

Supposedly the guy who CM Punk attacked, was the innocent one and he is filing a lawsuit.

He should. CMPunk is truly lucky that he was in Sac and not Oakland. If he would have pulled that garbage in my town there would have been a friggin riot in Oracle. He would have gotten his behind beat.

He's already said he's not pressing charges.

Yeah I saw it. Punk hauled off and hit the wrong dude. Luckily the guy said he isn't going to press charges, likely because (speculating) he is a fan and WWE probably bribed him with some inside access type stuff.

LJ you know I got love for you with our respective UCLA backgrounds... but I doubt you would have tackled Punk. He is an old school guy and definitely I could see him swinging back (as evidenced by what happened here). No one is beating any wrestler's behind at a show, with all due respect.

All respect to you too my friend, the love is reciprocated of course. Btw what a terrible loss we had at Cal this week. Same old Ucla Football though I'm still excited for Brent Hundley's future. I'm more excited for this upcoming Ucla basketball season though. 

In regards to Punk hindsight is 20-20 of course but Punk hauled off on the wrong guy unfortunately and hit him twice. I truly believe if that happened in Oakland there would have been a Ron Artest/Detroit Pistons Fans situation. The fan deserves an apology from Punk and I hope Punk gave it to him personally or over the phone and that he was given some memorabilia or settlement check of some sort.

We all agree that this was an unfortunate event. Luckily it did not get out of hand

Watch again.

Punk hit the right person (for all he knew).

The problem occurred because of Punk's aggression against people touching him and his belt which is perfectly normal for a wrestler who jumps the rail into a crowd.

@ :24 Punk pushes the kid to the left because the kid was touching him (as a fan who is enamored with him). The kid then turns on him and gives him a real shove at :27 from behind. This startles Punk as he almost went into the crowd on the right or down the stairs.

The kid who should have gotten decked was him.

@ :33 What appears to be the same kid, it happens again. Punk gets pushed forward and now he eyeballs the kid to let him know he's just gonna finish the skit and get the hell out of there.

@ :35 You can see the tall bald kid start moving forward trying to get some TV time. All he apparently is doing is putting on his sunglasses trying to look cool (fail).

Then at :38 seconds, the tall bald kid hits Punk in the back with his forearm.

Whether this was intentional we'll never know but it was likely unintentional. I think he was pushed because he was going through his 'trying to look cool' show, putting on his sunglasses and he abruptly hits Punk with his right arm, likely do to being pushed. 

Punk then loses it and hits the right guy at that moment.


What's the cause of all this?

The first problem occurred when the WWE allowed a wrestler, especially one of Punk's stature who is now a heavily hated heel by some, to go into the crowd without security.

The second problem occurred when Punk starts shoving people away, a big no-no against drunken fans/wild-eyed teens/young adults.

Ultimately, the fool on the right should have just taken Punk's shove and smiled/cursed. He's on TV and he got into it with a heel. That's more than enough. He literally tried to push Punk down the stairs which would have gotten him arrested or worse if Punk suffered injuries.

The number one rule in sports for fan/player behavior for a player is NEVER GET INTO IT WITH A FAN. It is a no win situation. Verbal confrontations are pointless and physical confrontations will only end badly.

The Palace Brawl comparison is appropriate. This could have turned into a melee of epic proportions. 

I don't think we'll see any wrestlers go into the crowd in the near future, especially since it occurred on McMahon's watch as he participated in the skit.

The shot Punk gave to that fan was certainly real. That is what we are discussing here.

Scal and I may be polar opposites on some issues but there are two things that I think he and I can agree on: handicapping and wrestling. Scal knows his garbage in both.

For the record, if they didn't mismanage CM Punk
s character and have him act like such a spineless heel (something completely contradictory to his persona the past year in every way), he wouldn't have had to run into the crowd when Ryback came out in the first place.

yeah sure. 

Did you watch the video? 

Were the two goon fans hired to harass/push/bump Punk and possibly incite a stadium brawl? That's fan participation right there huh...

This was not part of the show at all. It wasn't even broadcast so you know it was real.

cm punk is what you call skinny fat. He has very little muscle mass. If cm punk would've hit me, mistake or not, I'd beat the darn out to him. Or to quote a famous Texan from the wwe, "I'd stomp a mudhole in his behind" 

Been a fan of since I was 5 back when it was wwf, still a fan to this day, but punks but is now stale and not even believable anymore to carry out his agenda. I can't even take him seriously.
