In the main event of Monday Night Raw 8/27/12, WWE CM Punk bladed during his match with Jerry Lawler, causing the bloody scene that was seen on WWE TV. Punk discussed the bleeding scene on Twitter by posting a picture of his head (that had staples in it) to prove the blood was legit and saying that he paid $500,000 in total fines — including referee Charles Robinson’s fine — that apparently were incurred when Punk bladed / bled on purpose.
Tweeted Punk, “500k fine. Drop in the bucket. Bucket of blood! … And, yes, I have more power than you could possibly imagine. I paid Charles Robinsons fine. #respect”
CB’s Slant: $500,000, really? Wow. Kudos to Punk for thinking it was worth it (I certainly don’t).
