Chavo Guerrero made headlines with his somewhat controversial take on Seth Rollins being attacked by a fan on Raw but has now clarified what he meant.
On the latest edition of Monday Night Raw, Seth Rollins was assaulted by a fan on the entrance ramp. Rollins had just beat down Finn Balor in the ring, causing a match between the two to be called off, and was exiting the arena via the ramp when the attack occurred.
The confrontation was briefly caught on television before the camera quickly cut away. However, it was confirmed by those in attendance that the fan jumped the rail and tackled Rollins before security intervened. The attacker was then dragged away to loud “a**hole” chants.
This angle of the “fan” attacking Seth Rollins from @kash_vL is pretty crazy
