“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.”
Local authorities took a statement from the fan that Punk hit, and while he had initially noted that he did not have any injuries, he later contacted them and said he was dealing with pain in one of his knees. Authorities are still investigating the incident.
