Scary moment in WWE Monday night … Seth Rollin was attacked by a fan during “RAW” – and the wrestler needed a lot of security to help him get rid of him.
It all fell apart seconds after the superstar beat Finn balor in the ring at Barclays Center in New York… when a man left his seat, jumped over a railing and stabbed Rollins as the 35-year-old made his way back to the locker room.
The video shot by fans standing next to the altercation is WILD – the man absolutely rocked Rollins… taking him to the ground in a violent manner.
Rollins was able to defend himself long enough for referees and WWE security to help him – and luckily, Seth was able to break free and avoid serious injury.
WWE officials confirmed that the attack was not at all false … and said they were working with law enforcement to ensure the man “will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. law “.
“WWE takes the safety of its performers very seriously,” WWE officials said.
TMZ Sports learned that the NYPD arrested the fan … and the man has since been charged with 2 criminal charges – attempted assault, attempted artistic and cultural violation – disrupting a live sporting event.
We’re told he’s due in court for a hearing on the case next month.
Our sincere thanks to
