WWE issued the following statement to regarding C.M. Punk's altercation with a fan that occurred during Monday's Raw television show.

"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."

Powell's POV: The fan who was struck by Punk told police later in the evening that he started to experience pain in his knees. This is the same person who stated in a video interview that he felt the tape from Punk's hand brush against his face. I'm not sure how anything Punk did would cause him pain in his knees, though there was a lot of pushing and shoving going on in the crowd amongst the fans near Punk. In related news, I shook Punk's hand when we met at an indy show years ago. My knees just started hurting a minute ago, but I'm willing to accept a seven-figure out of court settlement if the WWE Champion wants to talk.
