Seth Rollins Speaks Out About WWE Raw Inside Barclays Center Fan Attack.
On Tuesday, Seth Rollins spoke with TMZ Sports for the first time since being attacked by a fan during this week’s Monday Night Raw at the Barclays Center.
“It’s terrifying, brother,” Rollins expressed his fears.
“It all happened in a flash.
I was mostly reacting and hoping that our security would arrive and perform their duties.
They were able to accomplish this in a short period of time.
Then it was just a matter of trying to separate myself from it all and move on.
I hope everyone is doing well.”
He went on to say that he was unharmed by the attack, saying, “No, no serious injuries.”
That’s not the case.
I was safe, and both of us were safe.
“Everything worked out fine.”
Following a brawl with Finn Balor on the entrance ramp, Elisah Spencer, 24, was apprehended by security and a group of referees and taken into custody by the NYPD. WWE issued a statement shortly after the incident, saying, “WWE takes the safety of its performers very seriously.”
“The person who assaulted Seth Rollins has been turned over to the NYPD and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” Spencer said. Spencer was charged with attempted assault and attempted violation of arts and cultural affairs.
He is scheduled to appear in court next month, according to reports.
“I believe he should not be allowed at the events as a precedent,” Rollins said.
Rollins was fresh off winning the Men’s Survivor Series elimination tag team match as Team Raw’s sole survivor heading into Raw.
Then he talked to Ariel Helwani about his wife, Becky Lynch, and Charlotte Flair’s emotional match earlier that night.
“I can’t even imagine what she went through out there tonight,” Rollins said.
“It’s one thing to go out and perform at a high level on a pay-per-view while also caring for a nearly one-year-old baby, but when you’ve had a falling out with your best friend, and I can tell you, legitimately, that’s been a process that’s been going on for years and it really reached a boiling point recently, as all the reports have said, it’s another thing entirely.”
She was uncomfortable with nothing about going into this match, and I imagine it was a very cathartic experience for her.
And I’ve been out there in matches where there wasn’t a lot of tension, and it’s made me cry when I get home.
As a result…
