CM Punk comments on punching fan at WWE Raw: I think the whole situation sucks

It's now been a full 24 hours since CM Punk entered the stands in Sacramento, California, during the Oct. 8, 2012, episode of WWE Monday Night Raw and got into an altercation with several fans, ultimately punching one of them multiple times.

We've broken down the video tape, heard from one of the guys who was there, printed the statement from WWE, and now it's time to hear straight from the man himself.

WWE.com released a story with comments from Punk:

"I think the whole situation sucks. 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."

Well, according to reports, apparently the man he hit is dealing with knee pain but there hasn't been any update there nor has there been any word on whether or not police are going to launch an investigation.

At this point, it seems unlikely and now that Punk has come out and apologized himself, it's probably time for everyone to move on.
