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 turned out that Rollins’ attacker was still upset over getting catfished years ago.
Last year on WWE 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 wanted to.
Seth Rollins, later on, admitted that he found the whole experience terrifying. He added that he was okay. While speaking with Ariel Helwani of BT Sport, Seth Rollins revealed that everything happened all of a sudden.
“It was so fast, I didn’t really have any time to process it. The only thought I remember having is when he was on top of me and they were already pulling him away, but he had like a handful of my hair and I was just trying to punt him off me with whatever foot I had underneath. My instinct was to grab his head immediately just to control his head. I don’t have any jiujitsu training at all, so whether I did anything right or wrong is completely instinctive. But yeah, my instinct was just as soon as I knew that someone was upon me, just to control his head as best I could.
I was just thankful that security was there. I was thankful that he wasn’t armed in any way. That could have gone very badly. And then, in the aftermath, I just felt bad for him. When I saw online what his situation was and that he had possibly been catfished out of some money and his mental capacity wasn’t great, I just felt bad. I felt bad that there wasn’t anybody in his life that could help him out. It was an unfortunate situation that I think was handled as best as it could all the way around.”
We sincerely hope such an incident never happens again to any pro wrestler. We’ll have to see what’s next in store for Seth Rollins.
