WWE Champion CM Punk
attacks innocent fan
During the end of the main event match on Monday 8th October 2012, WWE champion CM Punk attacked a fan in the audience live on Raw’s televised broadcast.
Vince McMahon, Punk’s opponent of the evening was in the ring, having drove him into the fan pit in the stalls. McMahon said Punk would have to choose to fight Ryback or John Cena at the Hell in a Cell Pay Per View, though instead fought a fan instead.
Unsuspecting victim Charles Schmidt, who was attacked, chose not to press charges initially, though is now rumoured to be seeking legal advice with an attorney.
With Vince McMahon returning to WWE Raw to address the “State of the WWE” – which you can see formed from our address here - State of the WWE . McMahon, who did not address any state in the evening, set a main event with the WWE Champion. McMahon is said to be “livid” with the WWE champion over the incident. Punk earlier battered Vince McMahon, as scheduled in the ring.
Is this the beginning of the end
for McMahon’s WWE?
With John Cena injured and losing steam eventually, Orton in the doghouse and Sheamus unable to provide, with Ryback and Big Show as company spares that cause more mayhem possible adding to decreasing ratings and no one in sight as the new star to rise, is the company destined to fall within a five to ten year timespan?
Either way, the WWE champion launched an attack on a live fan in attendance. Be A Star!
WWE released this public statement - "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."
Earlier in the week, McMahon removed Brian Gewirtz as head writer of Raw since ratings plummeted to an all-time low back to back last week and the week before it. Gewirtz had been highly respected since his arrival in 2000. Click here - Brian Gewirtz demoted as Raw head writer .
WWE can thank CBS13 reporter Laura Coles for creating this sh*t storm, whom WWE allowed into their live arena. Even with a coup under her nose, she still provided a crap story.
Though we were surprised invited guest journalist Larry King, who was involved in the programme, failed to pick this story up.
