The fan IDed as Elisah Spencer who jumped the guardrail and attacked WWE star Seth Rollins during ‘Monday Night Raw’ has been turned over to the New York City Police Department (NYPD).
WWE issued a statement about the incident and let everyone know that the fan has been turned over to the police and will be prosecuted “to the fullest extent of the law.”
The statement read:
“WWE takes 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.”
As Rollins was heading up the ramp after appearing on the show, a fan came out of the stands, rushed at him, and tried to take him down. Rollins put the attacker in a front facelock as the two went to the ground. Cameras then cut away from them, but security and WWE referees quickly separated the attacker from Rollins and escorted the attacker away. Rollins yelled at the attacker as he was being taken away but let security handle the situation.
Rollins took part in a segment on Monday’s Raw where he laid out Finn Balor. WWE switched to a replay from that segment when Rollins was attacked by the fan. When cameras came back to Rollins after the incident was over, he was back in character and laughing at Balor.
This isn’t the first time Rollins is getting attacked by a fan. In August 2016, during an episode on Raw, a fan jumped into the ring and went face-to-face with Rollins before being shoved away by him and taken down by security.
Also, in 2015:
A fan also came over the guardrail and attempted to walk with Rollinson as he was making his entrance on Raw.
The fan has been hit with attempted assault, attempted violation of arts and cultural affairs, and disrupting a live sporting event charges.
