The professional wrestler later apologised for the tweet, saying he didn't know "the whole story."

"I will fix my position and make it right," McAfee tweeted. "With that being said, it was a pretty good segue."

Meanwhile, Teller's wife, Keleigh Sperry Teller, confirmed via her Instagram Story that an altercation had occurred, while disputing reports that it was over an unpaid bill.

"The story reported about Miles being punched in the face by @TMZ over 'money' is completely false," the 28-year-old wrote. "Miles was jumped by 2 men we have never met after they trapped him in a bathroom. It seems these same men have done this to many people and we appreciate your support Maui. This is now a criminal investigation."

In a statement, a Maui Police Department spokesperson said "police responded to a report of an assault that occurred at a West Maui restaurant involving a male victim and one responsible party. The incident is currently under investigation; no further information is available at this time."
