Security Tackle Fan Who Jumped WWE Star Seth Rollins at New York Event

WWE star Seth Rollins was attacked by a fan at a wrestling event at New York’s Barclays Center on November 22.

Video posted by Twitter user @AdmiralShowtime shows the fan being taken away by security after Rollins was tackled while walking from the ring at a Monday Night Raw event.

In a statement to Fightful.com, the WWE said it took the safety of its performers “very seriously.”

“The individual who attacked Seth Rollins has been turned over to the NYPD and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” they said.

Rollins later returned to the auditorium, separate video showed, and he was seen jokingly “checking for crazy fans”, according to @AdmiralShowtime. Credit: @AdmiralShowtime via Storyful
