While I understand that most posters here are in their rebellious phase, there is absolutely no excuse for Punk to lay a hand on a fan. He is a professional, plain and simple. He is a public figure, thus held in higher standards. Not only does he represent himself, he represents the company. Specially the fact that he is the champion.
There is no sense in arguing, that a public figure has no right to defend him-/herself.
1) because you hide the fact, that this figure was cowardly physically attacked by a hooligan.
2) because by arguing so, you take away from that person the right to defend himself and his right to life and physical integrity.
Your way to prevaricate is not only an insult to everybody who has seen what happened. it is also the way of thinking that leads to such hooliganism.
As far as the fans attacking the superstars? Report to the police and ban them. Stripper policy, light touching, no force
at least in this point you show some discretion.
Thankful for CM Punk making me watch WWE again.

Not removing until:
 Raw or SD makes again a 6.5 or even a higher rating
 AJ Styles wins Royal Rumble
 CM Punk wins Royal Rumble
 CM Punk and AJ Styles main eventing Wrestlemania in an iron man match (and so creating epic stuff as e.g. misawa and kawada did in their matches)
 WWE pays tribute to Mitsuharu Misawa
Punk holding the title for 434 days was epic. it was the greatest reign in the history of wrestling (but not the way the reign ended):
AJ Styles is GOAT (period)
