A new report has offered a possible explanation as to why a fan jumped the guardrail and attacked Seth Rollins on the November 22nd edition of Monday Night Raw.
On the most recent episode of Monday Night Raw a fan jumped the guardrail and attacked Seth Rollins as he was leaving ringside. The confrontation was briefly caught on television before the camera quickly cut away.
However, it was soon 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.
Seth Rollins had come to the ring to celebrate his win in the Survivor Series battle for brand supremacy before taking on Finn Balor. Rollins was the sole survivor for Team Raw seeing off Jeff Hardy to claim the win, something Rollins was keen to remind the world on Raw.
After running down his accomplishments from the night before, some harsh words for Finn Balor brought The Prince to the ring. But Rollins quickly attacked the Irishman, and although Balor managed to get some offence in, he was soon overpowered. Rollins nailed Balor with the ring steps before hitting a Curb Stomp, before returning to the ring to deliver a second to leave Balor laying.
As Rollins left the ring and made his way up the ramp, the fan jumped the rail and tackled the star.
A new report from Sean Ross Sapp has now claimed to shed some light on the motive behind the assault. The report suggests that the fan had been scammed and catfished by a fake Seth Rollins account on social media.
The guy who attacked Seth Rollins got scammed and catfish by a fake Seth Rollins account. Welp

In the wake of the incident, WWE released a statement confirming that the attacker had been arrested. He was later identified as 24-year-old Elisah Spencer.
