Seth Rollins’ security team was ready to rumble at this week’s ‘Monday Night Raw’! When a fan rushed into the ring at the WWE event, he was quickly tackled to the floor before catching up to ‘The Architect!’ We have the insane details on the incident, here.
Seth Rollins, 30, didn’t have to lift a finger when a fan darted towards him during his promo in Corpus Christi, Texas on Aug. 15. The wrestler’s security team was there in a jiffy, even preventing the dude from making his television debut on Monday Night Raw.
In the raw footage, we see a bit of the unruly fan’s black batting helmet, but the production crew made sure to keep all eyes on the ring. As “The Architect” was hyping up the crowd for his Summerslam opponent, it was obvious he could see a figure zooming toward him, but he totally played it cool. The fan was quickly planted to the floor after being put in a headlock!
Once the fan was taken care of, Seth decided to use the incident for his benefit by making it part of his story line. He began to ridicule the guy’s actions by asking, “Is that the Demon King?” Seth then let out his signature maniacal laugh to the audience’s delight. He continued to provoke the feud by saying, “It doesn’t matter, because at the end of the day the Demon King will have no choice but to bow down to the man!” Anything but the Phoenix Splash!
Seth is gearing up to fight Finn Bálor, 35, for the WWE Universal championship belt at Summerslam on Aug. 21. Finn recently won the Fatal 4 Way qualifier, so now these two will go toe to toe to see who will claim the title! After the WWE Raw debut, Finn tweeted, “Worth the wait?
#Real.” We can’t wait to see what happens next!
