CM Punk

Punches Fan at WWE Event

Cops Interview Victim

Exclusive Details

Police in Sacramento, CA have interviewed a WWE fan who was punched in the face by CM Punk during a live televised event Monday night ... TMZ has learned.

The incident occurred on "Monday Night Raw" -- when Punk went into the crowd after a match ... and several fans began to get physical with him.

At first, Punk shrugged off the fans ... but the wrestler snapped when someone made contact with the back of Punk's head.

Punk unleashes a punch at the person he thinks hit him ... taking the guy down hard.

The victim met with police shortly after the incident ... and a rep for the Sacramento County Sheriff's Dept. tells us the man didn't appear to have any major injuries that required medical attention.

But later that night, the victim re-contacted police ... and said he had developed pain in his knees.

Cops say officers took the victim's statement and are determining whether to conduct a full investigation into the matter.

A rep for the WWE tells TMZ, "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."

The rep adds, "WWE regrets that proper security measures were not in place, and CM Punk apologizes for reacting in the heat of the moment."

Now he can't watch wrestling anymore because he pees his pants when he sees a wrestler. He can't have sex either. That's a big lawsuit.

You can see that the guy that was punched was not the one who hit CM. There is a guy in a white shirt who hits him in the back of the head, and then CM turns around thinking it was the guy in the black shirt who hit him.

I have no idea who CM Punk is, but I do know a douche bag when I see one. This douche bag managed to punch the ONE fan who didn't push or shove him. The guy should sue his ass and get a boat load of cash from WWE.

If you watch, it looks like that guy is the one who pushed him hard and then put his both hands/arms in the air and smacked CM Punk in the back of the head at the same time. It doesn't look like and accident either. It looks accidently on purpose and the guy wanted it to look like somebody else did it. He got caught and paid for it.

I've seen many videos of this and Punk did hit the wrong guy. The guy that hit Punk hid behind the guy he struck twice. Also WWE will not fire Punk for his actions that he displayed last night, they will probably use it to further his "I don't get the proper respect I deserve!" storyline that he has going on right now.
