Wrestling is scripted. However, what happened on Monday night at the Barclays Center was not part of the script.
A fan rushed the barrier to attack Seth Rollins at the conclusion of his fight on Monday Night Raw. The fan, who is a black male, is seen rushing towards then spearing Rollins.
Security then quickly got on top of the fan as Rollins separated from the action. Multiple officials within the WWE had to get the man away from the professional wrestler.
“WWE takes the safety of its performers very seriously,” WWE 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.”
WWE was in town as they held Survivor Series on Sunday night at the venue. It is unknown at this time what charges the fan may be facing for his attack.
According to the New York Post, this is the second fan, who has attacked a WWE employee at the Barclays Center. In 2019, during the WWE Hall of Fame show, WWE legend Bret “The Hitman” Hart was attacked by a fan.
At this time, it is not clear who the fan is, who was escorted out of the venue. Also, if this fan will receive a ban from future events so this does not happen again.
