- The New York Daily News named CM Punk their "Dude of the Week" for this past week. Punk received the honor for visiting robbery shooting victim Tom Dotterer in a Syracuse, New York hospital. They wrote about Punk:
"For paying a surprise visit. The WWE star invited Tom Dotterer to a wrestling show Sunday, but the 77-year-old was admitted to the hospital for emergency surgery related to a gunshot wound to the eye he suffered in January during a robbery at his liquor store. Dotterer couldn't make it to the WWE event so Punk (showing he's hardly one) came to the hospital before the show for some spirit lifting. A letter Dotterer wrote, read by his son during a fund-raiser, showed he was thinking of Punk. Dotterer asked to be forgiven by those he 'sarcastically ripped apart or had opinionated exchanges with.'"
