Fan notes from RAW indicate that CM Punk did strike a fan. It's hard to say what really happened unless you are Punk or one of the offending fans. One person who was sitting one section over said that the man who got punched actually shoved Punk in the back of the head while the cameras were cut away on Vince McMahon in the ring. Another fan said the man who got hit was definitely innocent and was seen making gestures to police like he was trying to explain what happened. There are various accounts going around about what happened last night.
The man was ejected by WWE and arena security after RAW went off the air. WWE's security was seen yelling at the man before he spoke to CBS 13 reporter Laura Cole. The man filed a police report.
The WWE fan who provoked CM Punk into striking an innocent fan twice in the face at Monday's Raw in Sacramento, California, boasted about his actions on Twitter.
The fan, who lists himself as Dario Teyes, responded to a person who said he saw him on Raw and wondered whether he saw the fan who got punched.
"bro I'm the one that was f***ing with him lmao them he rocked an innocent fan. that guy is about to be a millionaire!!!" he wrote. "I punched [Punk's] kidney and slapped his back hella hard. bro [Punk] straight pounced on a poor day white guy. I hit him ran away then ran back and stood next to him cause I saw the camera."
Teyes was asked why no one singled him out to security, writing, "cause I dipped fast! Come on now poor fat guy is just hanging out putting his glasses on."
When Teyes was told he was going to be caught, he responded, "no one ever has and no one ever will."
The fan who was struck twice in the face by CM Punk during Monday's live Raw television broadcast addressed the ordeal in a brief video interview.
He said he felt Punk's tape go across his face. When asked if he was upset with Punk, he said "a little bit" since it doesn't seem like something a person should do. He then said he now knows how NBA fans felt when Ron Artest went after them years ago during a game.
CM Punk: "Somebody said, 'let's push him down the stairs,'" Punk explained. "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."
