The fan who was hit by wrestler CM Punk during “Monday Night RAW” in Sacramento reportedly filed a police report after the assault.

Laura Cole, who works for CBS 13 in Sacramento, reported on her Twitter account that the fan was filing a report with law enforcement late Monday.

Cole spoke with the fan who told her he never hit Punk to provoke the attack. She also snapped a photo of the fan holding his sunglasses, which he says were broken by Punk:

CM Punk hits fan at ‘RAW’ (Video)

CM Punk went overboard during “Monday Night RAW” in Sacramento by attacking a fan.

Punk was in the stands and going back-and-forth with Vince McMahon during the show’s closing moments when he hit the fan. CM Punk had been touched on the shoulder, and he wheeled around and slugged a fan in the face with a backhanded punch/slap. He continued to pursue the fan by leveling him with a punch to the chin.

Security could be seen rushing over to break it up.

There’s little doubt that Punk’s attack was not part of the show. The fan would have to be as dedicated to the WWE as possible to not take some sort of legal action over the incident, because that was an obvious assault.

Jerry Lawler releases short video from hospital thanking fans for support

Jerry Lawler is still in Montreal recovering from his recent heart attack, but it appears he is doing well. Earlier this week, Lawler’s ex-wife Stacy Carter informed us that doctors had taken “The King” out of sedation and that he was responsive. Although there was fear of possible brain damage, a report from WREG said Lawler did not have any brain damage.

Considering Lawler was said to be clinically dead for about 20 minutes before being revived, he is very lucky to even be alive.

As you can see from the video above that Black Sports Online shared with us, “The King” took a few moments this week from his hospital room to thank the WWE community for its support. He even snuck in a funny joke about having more wires hooked up to him than AT&T, which is a great sign for WWE fans.

The fact that Lawler hasn’t lost his sense of humor is certainly a relief.

Jerry Lawler reportedly responsive but feared to have brain damage

After suffering a heart attack during “Monday Night Raw” earlier this week, Jerry Lawler is said to be responsive and recovering. According to his ex-wife, former WWE Diva Stacy Carter, Lawler underwent more heart procedures on Tuesday and doctors have since removed his ventilation and taken him out of sedation. However, Carter wrote on Facebook that it is feared ‘The King’ he may have brain damage.

“I have an update on Jerry. The docs are removing his ventilation & taking him out of sedation,” Carter wrote according to All Wrestling News. “He is responsive, which is great!!! It took a while to revive him last night so there’s the concern of brain damage. He had some tests done which will show how much if any damage there is due to the lack of oxygen to his brain. Unfortunately, the results won’t be in until in the morning. I appreciate all the calls, texts, tweets, & Facebook messages of support & I know Jerry will too. Thanks everybody!!”

Considering he was pronounced clinically dead for 20 minutes before being revived, news that Lawler is responsive is certainly a good thing. It’s far too early to say if WWE fans can expect him back ringside ever again, but our thoughts are with Jerry as he continues on the road to recovery.

Jerry Lawler had heart attack, was clinically dead before being revived

Jerry Lawler suffered a heart attack during “Monday Night Raw,” the WWE confirmed.

Lawler collapsed during Monday’s telecast of “RAW” at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada, and was treated immediately by the medical staff. EMTs worked to successfully revive Lawler, who, according to multiple accounts, was clinically dead.

This particular report comes from Smith Hart, the older brother of Brett and Owen Hart:

Clinically dead for 20 minutes before being revived. I’m not sure a stunt with Andy Kaufman could have come up with a scenario that frightening.

Lawler’s girlfriend, Lauryn Laine McBride, wrote on her Facebook page that Lawler had a heart attack and that he is in stable condition and breathing on his own. That’s great news for the millions who were concerned about The King’s well being.

In the video below, you can see Lawler being taken to the locker room on a stretcher:

Jerry Lawler collapses during ‘Monday Night Raw’

Jerry Lawler was treated by paramedics after collapsing at the announcers’ table during “Monday Night Raw” at the Bell Centre in Montreal on Monday.

Lawler collapsed during the tag team match between Kane & Daniel Bryan and The Prime Time Players. He was treated in the locker room-area by WWE medical staff, and was then taken from the arena to a medical facility in Montreal.

Announcer Michael Cole appeared on the telecast to explain to the viewers what happened.

“This is not part of our entertainment tonight,” said Cole. “This is a real-life situation. Earlier this evening, my broadcast colleague Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler passed out while working here at ringside. He collapsed on the ground. He was stretchered to the back where he received CPR.

“The latest update that we have now is he has been taken to a local hospital in Montreal. We are being told that he is receiving oxygen. Jerry is breathing on his own, although this is extremely a serious situation.”

An emotional Cole then said the telecast would go on without commentary.

“Jerry, my prayers are with you. Out of respect to Jerry tonight, there’s going to be no further commentary on this broadcast.”

Cole said he hoped to provide viewers with another update on Lawler’s condition at the end of the show, and he did.

“We’re being told that Jerry is more responsive as we speak. He’s reacting to lights in his eyes. He is in the isolated portion of the emergency room. He is awaiting a CT scan. We are told that in typical Jerry fashion, he is fighting hard.”

As you can see from the photo below shared by reporter Arda Ocal, Cole was in disbelief without his announcing partner next to him:

AW goes on massive Twitter rant after being released from WWE

A.W. went on a massive Twitter rant on Friday after learning that he was released by the WWE. His release comes less than two weeks after he made a joke alluding to Kobe Bryant’s infamous alleged sexual assault case during Episode 101 of “Monday Night Raw,” which aired on July 30.

A.W.’s wrestler Titus O’Neil was facing Kofi Kingston when the manager said, “Titus O’Neil is like Kobe Bryant at a hotel (room) in Colorado. He’s unstoppable!!”

The WWE issued an apology later that night, as did A.W., but the apologies apparently weren’t enough; he was released on Friday.

A.W. complained over Twitter that the WWE has become too politically correct after previously encouraging its personalities to be brash. His tweets are below:
