Seth Rollins’ time in promotions such as Ring Of Honor certainly helped him hone his craft before making his way to WWE. Rollins’ current obnoxious heel character never fails to annoy fans. On top of that, Rollins really doesn’t do scripted promos as such, just like Roman Reigns.
The life of a professional wrestler is not without its fair share of drawbacks. This includes crazy fans who jump the barricades and either try to interact with the wrestlers or attack them.
Unfortunately for Rollins, it was the latter this time as a fan attacked him while he made his way to the ring on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW. The fan was apprehended and ejected out of the building.
Sean Sapp of Fightful took to Twitter and revealed that WWE released an official statement on the matter. It was said that the fan was turned over to the NYPD after the attack.
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.
We certainly hope such an incident never happens again as fans should never jump the barricades, let alone try to bring harm to a pro wrestler. We will keep you updated on this ongoing story.
