A new report has suggested that a peculiar – and potentially dangerous – situation unfolded at AEW events in Long Island when a fan posed as a wrestler and made it to the locker room.
AEW was in Long Island for their Dynamite and Rampage shows on the 8th of December. Dynamite saw a homecoming for MJF who was given a hero’s welcome by his hometown crowd.
The crowd was even more taken with another local boy who competed on Rampage as the cries of “Send Hook” were finally answered by Team Taz with Taz sending his son into battle. Hook faced off with Fuego Del Sol and put The Alabaman Luchador out with his take on the Tazmission, rechristened as REDRUM.
The report states that building security at UBS Arena let a fan who was posing as an extra backstage. The fan then took the bold step of entering the inner sanctum of the professional wrestler – the locker room – where he unwittingly took up residence in Harwood’s chair. The fan was promptly told to move before relocating to Blade of The Hardy Family Office’s seat.
It is reported that questions were soon asked of the fan as suspicions were aroused as he was putting on what was described as “Jeff Hardy-style armbands.” The fan was then asked who trained him before naming Hardy as his wrestling coach which came as a surprise to the wrestlers present as Jeff Hardy does not train wrestlers.
The fan is then reported to have given the wrong name when asked who booked him as an extra and it was at this point MJF and Dax Harwood seemingly decided enough was enough and threw him out. They are said to have taken him to someone who was able to confirm that the same fan had been kicked out of an AEW show in Boston in October.
A source reportedly told Fightful that given the situation where Seth Rollins was attacked by a fan on Raw recently, they were glad that the situation was resolved peacefully.
