Seth Rollins has publicly spoken about the fan attack during Monday night’s WWE Raw at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.
In an interview with TMZ Sports, Rollins called the attack “terrifying”, and said it happened very quickly, and that he tried to react until security arrived.
“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 okay…it’s terrifying, brother.”
Rollins did confirm he was not injured in the attack. He also said the fan should not be allowed at future WWE events.
Per the report from NYPD, 24-year-old Elisah Spencer left his seat at at 9:20 pm local time, jumped barricade and attacked Rollins, who ended up with a swollen lip.
