10 Times Things Got Physical Between Pro Wrestlers and Fans
Randy Orton was cutting a promo while standing on a turnbuckle at a July 30 2013 SmackDown World Tour Live event in Cape Town, South Africa. A scrawny fan crept into the ring, snuck up behind Orton, and struck him at least once, knocking him down.
The fan then appeared ready to fight Orton, but security took the man down from behind. This was probably for the best, as it ended the distraction, protected Orton, and with Orton only landing a kick, likely saved the fan from a premature funeral. As if there was any doubt, WWE authenticated the incident in a statement afterward, saying the man was turned over to local authorities.
