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. It seems there is more to the Seth Rollins story than initially thought. It turns out that Rollins’ attacker was still upset over getting catfished years ago.
As seen on last week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, a fan attacked Seth Rollins and caused a huge stir. Seth Rollins was utterly blindsided, which is why he couldn’t react to the situation as quickly as he’d have want to.
Seth Rollins later on admitted that he found the whole experience terrifying. He added that he was okay. It seems Ric Flair found issue with what Rollins said.
While speaking on his podcast, Wooooo Nation UNCENSORED, Ric Flair talked about Seth Rollins being attacked by the fan. Flair stated that Rollins shouldn’t have admitted that he was scared.
“I could say a lot of cute things, but I’m not going to, because I don’t want to — every time I say something, I have to involve other people, and then they have to endure the consequences,” said Ric Flair. “I have seen that happen, but I’ve never seen it where the fan clearly was getting the better of the individual. My problem with Seth is that if you’re a top guy in this business and you know anything about the psychology of what the fans think and feel, which they really do, you never, ever, ever get off an airplane in LA and say, ‘I was terrified,’ terrified of what? Terrifying, Seth, is being in an airplane crash.
You were terrified or horrified by a wrestling fan? Come on, man. What I would have done if I was Seth, which everybody should learn from this, is that even though the referees had the guy, I would’ve jumped back on him, even if I never got a shot in. I know your answer is going to be, well there’s lawsuits and all that, WWE would have covered the lawsuit, Seth would have never got to them. But, if you are a heel, you never admit defeat. You just don’t do it. Do you think I ever beat anybody? No, but in the minds of most people, I didn’t lose because I kept lying about it even though it was a work. You never admit you got your ass kicked, much less being horrified or terrified.”
Spencer also apologized for his actions recently. Elisah Spencer got out of lockup but is expected to appear in front of a judge in December. We sincerely hope such an incident never happens again to any pro wrestler.
