A fan attacked Seth Rollins during Monday night’s live WWE Raw at Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York.
There was a segment in the ring where Rollins ambushed Finn Balor before their match. Rollins gave Balor a beating in and outside of the ring, then made his exit to the back as trainers checked on Balor in the ring. As Rollins and a referee were walking up the ramp to the back, a fan ran down from the mid-level seating, jumped the barricade and tackled Rollins. Both Rollins and the referee went down as security rushed over, along with WWE Producer Michael “PS” Hayes.
The camera quickly cut away from the fan attack as they showed replays of the Rollins and Balor segment.
WWE made the following statement on Monday night as it relates the incident:
“WWE takes the safety of its performers very seriously,” the company said in a statement. “The individual who attacked Seth Rollins has been turned over to the NYPD and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
