After WWE issued a statement yesterday on the CM Punk incident from RAW, the WWE champion spoke about what happened for the first time to WWE.COM today.
“I think the whole situation sucks. It’s an unfortunate and isolated incident. I was up in the stands, surrounded,” Punk told WWE.COM.
WWE security was not fast enough to surround Punk like they usually do when brawls spill into the stands and with the recent heat Punk has been getting, it was a disaster waiting to happen.
“Somebody said, ‘let’s push him down the stairs,'” he said. “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.”
According to reports, the person who was struck by Punk filed a report with the police however he decided not to press any charges.
