-- Joe Evans sent this one along: At yesterday's house show in Knoxville, TN, an elderly woman was ejected from the show after slapping CM Punk. Joe Evens writes: "Punk was getting heat and this woman just walked up to him, told him he wasn't Jesus and wailed away with a hard slap. Punk smiled and told her he forgave her while security pulled her out of the show, then genuflected, making it even more insanely funny. The guy didn't lose a step from it either."
