WWE Champion C.M. Punk spoke with Joey Styles of the WWE website and issued his first public comments on the fan altercation that took place during Monday's Raw. "I think the whole situation sucks,” Punk said. "It’s an unfortunate and isolated incident. I was up in the stands, surrounded.

"Somebody said, ‘let’s push him down the stairs. I got hit in the ribs three times. I was getting shoved and I was getting punched…Then I started getting tagged in the back of the head. Unfortunately, I lashed out in the heat of the moment and I apologize. I’m really just glad nobody was hurt." To read the story, visit

Powell's POV: The fans who got physical with Punk were wrong. Punk was wrong to assume he knew the fan behind him was responsible and to swing as wildly as he did. WWE was wrong for not having security in place. There's plenty of blame to go around on this one.
