Notes on CM Punk Ranting on a Fan at Monday’s Raw

Did he get in trouble?
- CM Punk's rant against the fan in the front row of RAW this past Monday happened because the fan was harassing Punk during his segment (but nothing over the top) and Punk was in a "grumpy mood" at the taping, so he took it out on the fan in a way that added to the segment.
While WWE normally doesn't want their babyfaces to insult fans, there wasn't any repercussions for the incident. Many believe it actually helped the segment since both Punk and Paul Heyman used it to enhance what they were saying and the crowd actually popped for it anyway.
