CM Punk hits guy in crowd WWE Raw

Pre-show notes:

Comments, shares, likes, what-have-you are really appreciated. We want to keep building the community, and not just get comfortable talking about wrestling in this weird oasis we’ve built where Damian Sandow is the coolest guy in the room and CM Punk has a bunch of problems. Share this with your family, friends, people you’ve never met, and (as a last resort), those people you know from the forum. You know the one I’m talking about.

– Thanks as always to Casey/THESTINGER of Hammerlock Dialectic for GIFs, which make their triumphant return to this week’s column.

– Follow us on Twitter @withleather, follow me personally @MrBrandonStroud and like us on Facebook.

– There’s a thing about CM Punk punching a dude near the end of the column, but don’t get excited, I didn’t write much about it. If you’re here for the first time, welcome, and try to like wrestling when it isn’t mainstream-awful!

Regardless, please enjoy the Best And Worst Of WWE Raw for October 8, 2012.
