Speaking to TMZ.COM, Seth Rollins said that the fan attack
on Raw happened very quickly and said it was “terrifying.”
Rollins told TMZ Sports after he landed at the Los Angeles
airport that what he did was mostly a reaction to contain
the assailant and hoped that their security team would come
and do their job. “Which they did very quickly,” Rollins
added. A WWE referee was quick in jumping on the fan and
within seconds security officials and WWE referees were on
the scene as well.
The former WWE champion said after it happened, he was
trying to “detach and move on” and hoped that everyone
involved was okay, confirming that he suffered no injuries.
But Rollins did admit that the attack was terrifying and
hoped that the 24-year-old man would not be allowed at any
future WWE events. The incident could have been much worse
if the fan was armed. Footage from inside the Barclays
Center showed the fan coming out of a blind corner and
spearing Rollins. Rollins put him in a headlock until
security came in to take over.
The attacker posted on social media several exchanges with
some guy who posed as Seth Rollins, a possible reason why he
decided to attack on Raw.
This was the second fan attack at the Barclays Center at a
WWE event as a few years ago, Bret “Hit Man” Hart was also
attacked on stage during the Hall of Fame ceremony. Several
wrestlers jumped in to intervene and even had a parting
punch or two at him.
