Seth Rollins attacked: Fan tackles WWE star on 'Raw' in CRAZY video
At Barclays Center on Monday, November 22, a WWE fan attempted to attack pro-wrestler Seth Rollins. During Monday's 'Raw', the fan hopped over the guard rail towards the rear of the ramp and tackled WWE star Seth Rollins as he walked back from his bout.
Before making contact with Rollins, the fan acquires a full sprinting start, as is seen on Twitter videos. Rollins can be seen straining to shove the fan off and wiggle away with the fan on top of him. WWE officials, referees, and crew workers attempted to remove Rollins, whose real name is Colby Lopez, from the spot.

One official slammed a running elbow into the back of thefan, allowing Rollins to break free. Rollins, who had just finished a match with Finn Balor, got enraged and began screaming at the fan as security moved him to the back. "F**k him up," the Brooklyn fans began to chant. Another video shows security escorting the fan out of the area.
“WWE takes the safety of its performers very seriously,” WWE said. “The individual who attacked Seth Rollins has been turned over to the NYPD and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."

This is the second time a WWE fan has jumped the barrier and attacked a member of the company at Barclays Center. During the WWE Hall of Fame show in 2019, a fan rushed pro wrestling star Bret Hart in the ring. Hart was delivering his Hall of Fame address at the time.
Hart was inducted into the Hall of Fame for the second time as a member of the famed tag team The Hart Foundation. A man ran into the ring and attempted to tackle Hart, 61, and Natalya, daughter of Hart's partner Jim 'The Anvil' Neidhart, who died last year. As a result, the WWE Network's coverage went dark.
