The 24-year-old fan who attacked Seth Rollins during the live taping of Monday Night Raw at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn has spoken and revealed why he attacked him.
Via Total Pro Sports:
Rollins had just finished a segment where he beat Finn Balor and left him laying in the ring. The fan jumped the barricade and tackled Rollins to the ground. It was briefly caught on live broadcast before cameras cut away. Security came out and dragged that fan backstage.
According to the fan, who has been arrested by the police and charged with attempted assault and attempted violation of arts and cultural affairs, he was scammed out of money by someone claiming to be Seth Rollins. Apparently, it was a fake account.
But that isn’t an excuse for the police to release him. The man will still face charges leveled against him for taking the law into his own hands.
TMZ Sports caught up with Seth Rollins, and this is what he said about the attack:
“It’s terrifying, brother. It happened very quickly. I was mostly just reacting and hoping that our security would come and do their job. Which they did very quickly. And then was just trying to detach and move on. Hope that everybody is OK.”
If it had actually been Rollins that scammed him, I would have understood, but did this guy really think that Seth Rollins needed money from him?
Does he also think he’s Rollins’ kid godfather as well? I understand being a superfan, but there have to be some mental health issues going on here.
I will say that the person who scammed him should also be arrested because he obviously took advantage of someone who isn’t that bright.
The crazy thing is this isn’t even the top 25 of the craziest stories of 2021.
