WWE Star Randy Orton Attacked by Fan in South Africa




At a WWE stop in Cape Town, South Africa Tuesday, a fan put himself in the middle of the action when he hopped into the ring and punched wrestler Randy Orton.

As Orton stood on a turnbuckle, this happened:


"The matter is currently under investigation by the local authorities, and the South African fan is being held in jail pending criminal charges," read a post on the WWE website. "The extent of Orton's injuries are unknown at this time."



As far as punches to the groin go, it didn’t look like Orton was too banged up. Not so sure about the fan, who took what looked like a kick to the head. What else could he have expected, right?

This is not the first time a fan has attacked a player during a sporting event (if this counts as one). Two fans jumped Kansas City Royals first base coach Tom Gamboa during a game in 2002. And most infamously, Monica Seles was stabbed in the back by a fan during a tennis match in 1993.
