CM Punk 'Disrespects Paul Bearer On WWE Raw'
Wrestling bad boy in controversial move amid tributes to late manager...
CM Punk has angered wrestling fans by "disrespecting" the late Paul Bearer at WWE Monday Night Raw.
Bearer, whose real name was William Moody, died earlier this month at the age of 58 - and several heartfelt tributes were paid to him at last night's event.
His most-famous protégé, the Undertaker, appeared in the ring with the famous urn which Bearer used to carry - bowing to it in respect.
And a video montage of the manager's most-famous moments was played, with footage of the great and good of WWE sharing their memories of him.
But when the current WWE bad boy CM Punk appeared he said he wanted to pay tribute to Bearer - at Wrestlemania. He then cut short a promo and was booed by the audience.
He was later beaten by another of Bearer's wrestlers - Kane - with an assist from the Undertaker.
CM Punk and the Undertaker are due to fight at Wrestlemania in April.
