    The guy that gets the backhand was just trying to put his glasses on.

    That makes it extra funny.

    Below is the best view from a fan cam. It does look like the guy was testing Punk and tried to look innocent after.

    I dont now if thats the angle from the guy in the crowd but thats the best angle. I had to watch it a few times but the guy in the black shirt is innocent, if you look close you see theres a guy in a white shirt underneath blackshirts armpit, he flips him off then gives him a smack in the back of the head then CM turns around and clocks the guy in the black lol.

    This is literally what pro wrestling heels ASPIRED to do up until Vince's massive expansion, get the fans SO hot that they want to kill you. There are crazy stories of fans being so riled up that they'd storm the ring and stab the heels with knives and some promoters wouldn't use talent if they'd get the crowd "TOO HOT".

    Full blown riots were common place in alot of territories. Fan confrontation stories about Jim Duggan in Mid South, Blackjack Mulligan in Texas and Jim Cornette and The Midnight Express in Mid-South all ended in lawsuits. The most famous actually didn't even happen in a ring, but rather a hotel bar where Haku bit a belligerent drunk fan's nose off.

    However, in the overly PC 21st Century corporate WWE where has the owner's wife trying to buy a seat in the Senate, this is hotwater stuff.

    Wrestling: CM Punk backhands fan during WWE Monday Night Raw

    Pro wrestling is to MMA what the McRib is to slow-cooked Memphis barbecue, but every once in awhile, pro wrestling gets a little too real.
    On Monday night in Sacramento, WWE wrestler CM Punk apparently went off-script during a sequence with WWE chairman Vince McMahon and backhanded a fan in the stands. The initial assumption is that it was staged — even a heart attack, is initially suspect — but a WWE statement released Tuesday afternoon to Yahoo! Sports makes it clear this was not part of the show:


    "During last night's Raw televised event, WWE Superstar CM Punk exited the ring into the stands as part of the 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 in 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. Other than this isolated incident, WWE always provides proper security to ensure the safety of our fans and our performers."
    Amateur video of the event shows that Punk just flat-out lost his temper with fans badgering him. And, as is so often the case in these audience brawls, Punk apparently went after the wrong guy.
    Laura Cole, a Sacramento CBS reporter, sought out the fan whom Punk decked. According to Cole's Twitter feed, the fan "says he never hit Punk," and that "his face is a little warm. … He also says Punk broke his glasses." Cole further noted that the fan was filing paperwork with local law enforcement.
    So what went wrong here? As you can see in the above video, Punk was almost completely swarmed by fans in the stands. Still, he's got to figure that at a wrestling match, people might just be a little hyped up. So, yes, while a lack of WWE security might have played a role, fundamentally it's on Punk to keep in control.
    The guy he hit definitely slapped him on the back of the head....

    for some reason the video wont embed correctly..I dont normally have an issue with this
