Seth Rollins Was Attacked By A Crazed Fan On WWE RAW

Seth Rollins Was Attacked By A Crazed Fan On WWE RAW

Seth Rollins was shockingly attacked by a fan who jumped a barricade last night on RAW.

The former WWE champion had been in the ring celebrating his Survivor Series victory the night before. He was part of Team Raw's success over Team Smackdown in the annual battle of the brands at the event.

But before he finished, Finn Balor came out to interrupt him. A brawl began with Rollins getting the better of the Bray native.

On his way backstage, a fan ran from the side of the walkway and tackled Rollins to the ground. It was caught for a brief couple of seconds on TV but WWE quickly cut to another angle as security and referees intervened.

Plenty of fan footage has emerged. The fan in question did his best spear impression and hit Seth Rollins with something even Goldberg would be proud of.

The individual who attacked Rollins is a local Brooklyn man who was subsequently arrested by the NYPD. In a statement on the incident WWE said "WWE takes the safety of its performers very seriously. The individual who attacked Seth Rollins has been turned over to the NYPD and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."

It wasn't the only incident involving the Brooklyn crowd last night as several wrestlers had an altercation after a fan said something. The fan was ejected from the building to round off the weird night for WWE.

This is just the latest in the line of fan altercations at sporting events recently. Ever since full crowds have returned to events the fans seem a bit more rowdy and are getting involved. Just in the rugby alone there has been pitch invaders and pranks pulled by Jarvo69 that have disrupted proceedings. It will surely have to stop before something bad happens.
