Official statement from WWE:

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.


And a comment from CM 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.


And a tweet from CBS reporter Laura Cole who reported on the story and interviewed Charles Schmidt (the fan who Punk hit):

Shame really as the guy who got punched did nothing wrong.
Anyone think if this was a lower card wrestler they would be future endeavoured?

In other news...

From WrestleZone's Justin LaBar

It was reported on TMZ that Shelly Ehler was upset at Alberto Del Rio for ripping her 8-year-old's sign up and then mocking her son crying.

I spoke to Ehler in an exclusive interview recorded for Wrestling Reality on TribLIVE Radio and she revealed TNA President Dixie Carter personally called her today.

Carter said she was sad to read about her WWE experience and offered Ehler's family VIP passes to Bound For Glory in Phoenix, AZ.

Ehler said Carter explained TNA's wrestlers would never act that way. She encouraged them to come meet Hulk Hogan and all the wrestlers on behalf of TNA.

The full 12 minute conversation between Ehler and I will be released tomorrow. During the interview the following topics are covered...

- Her detailed account of the incident with Alberto Del Rio

- Sheamus reaching out to her through Direct Message on Twitter

- She asks me if I feel Del Rio acted like a bully

- If she'll ever bring her son back to a WWE show

- How TMZ got a hold of the story

- Dixie Carter's conversation with her

I'm hoping she actually accepts Dixie's offer, as I'd love to see how TNA will try to capitalise on this! :laugh:



And a bit of a biggie from PWInsider...

A number of top talents have approached Vince McMahon in recent weeks...

One of the top talents had a verbal back and forth with McMahon in front of everyone. In this exchange, the talent basically told Vince the writing sucks and that McMahon doesn't have his finger on the pulse of things anymore.

...The talent told him he needs to start listening to people around him...saying when WWE goes to "hell in a handbasket," it will be all Vince's fault.

Guessing time: Who do you think it was? I'm gonna go down the obvious route and say CM Punk.

Former WWE Diva, Ashley Massaro, took to Twitter yesterday stating she was taken off this Thursday's BLOW event in New Jersey. BLOW is a brand new all-women's promotion, owned and operated by the same people behind Pro Wrestling Syndicate.

Massaro said it was unprofessional of PWS to leave her on the promotional flyer for the event "until a week before". She also encouraged fans to reach out to PWS and demand a refund if they purchased due to her promoted appearance.

I reached out to both parties via Twitter and text message for statements. I have yet to receive word from Massaro or anyone related, but Eric Tapout (co-owner) sent the following statement on behalf of PWS/BLOW:

"Ashley Massaro was booked on PWS' 9/14 event. Her booking entailed valeting The Big O, doing a 50/50 gimmick split for 2 hours before show, and during intermission. Ashley was paid full upon arrival.

Her boyfriend instructed the person operating the autograph table that Ashley was to receive the first $500 collected, in addition to the flat fee she received. This was not per her agreement.

Ashley refused to sign any extra photos. She did valet The Big O, then skipped out before intermission without notifying anyone at PWS."


Massaro said in her explanation on Twitter that she wasn't feeling very well, but still stayed for both of her signings with The Big O before leaving. She also stated that she could not find the promoters anywhere to inform them she was leaving.

Tapout continues: "Several days later, at 3am legit, Ashley's boyfriend (Nick, who is also her manager) texted me saying we 'needed to talk'. Reason he gave was, 'It was unfair that dude at the door collected $20 admission and Ashley didn't get a cut because she's the crowd getter'.

I responded with, 'You do understand there were a dozen ex-WWE names on the show, Mr. Belding, and a ton of smart mark wrestlers, right?'

Her boyfriend responded with, 'Nah, they come to see Ash'.

After a discussion with my partner, Pat Buck, the decision was reached to remove Ashley from our 10/11 Bombshell Ladies of Wrestling (BLOW) event. Ashley has since picked up a booking at NYC Comic Con, so honestly, it was a win-win for both of us.

I was appalled that she was ranting on Twitter about the situation without being honest."


WrestleZone.com's Bill Pritchard was in attendance and thinks it was shortly after the second match(the match she accompanied Big O to the ring), no longer, that Massaro was around before leaving, but her departure time is unconfirmed.

In the purely speculative column, the word going around the locker room is that Massaro might have been nervous and left early due to Reby Sky (Matt Hardy's girlfriend) being there. Some are claiming Massaro might have been worried Sky would approach her regarding things Ashley said about her in the past. That clearly hasn't been confirmed by Massaro, and Reby Sky has not commented on the situation either.

Eric Tapout did add that any fan wanting a refund because Ashley Massaro will not be on the card can make a request through www.prowrestlingsyndicate.com, and they'll be happy to return your money.


Looks like she's gonna turn into yet another Tammy Sytch. Speaking of which...
