I'm gonna summon my inner Jim Ross now.
MY GAWD, CM Punk is being beaten like a government mule! Good gawd almighty! He's not trying to hurt the man, he is trying to end his career! Someone help him! He might fall down the steps after getting nudged in the back of the head!
I'll start by staying that I'm not condoning what Punk did (regardless if he had hit the right guy), as plenty of people like to read things into posts that just aren't there.
When it comes to Punk finally reacting, the "slap" to the back of his head was just the drop that made the cup run over. What people are referring to in terms of falling down the stairs was that the video shows that Punk was previously pushed hard enough that he had to take a step down the stairs. What we've also learned was that someone shouted "let's push him down the stairs", some people hit him in the ribs and so on.
So while the first thing I said applies, a lot more happened than you seem to have picked up on. He certainly overreacted but if he had reacted like that for nothing more than the slap to the back of his head he'd almost be psychotic.
