The WWE have once again been forced to respond after yet another fan invasion incident interrupted a major event. 

Official response

The latest drama saw a fan jump the railings to join Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns in the ring during last night's Night of Champions pay-per-view.

And now, with Sunday's commotion the fourth time a fan has escaped WWE security in less than a month, the WWE have issued an official statement.

Relayed by NoDq.com, the statement reads:

"WWE takes the safety of our performers very seriously and any fan entering the ring area will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."

Although the fan who joined Ambrose and Reigns didn't appear to be posing any real danger to either wrestler, the fact that such incidents are happening on an increasingly regular basis is clearly a cause for concern for the organization.

The WWE are yet to reveal exactly what "the fullest extent of the law" might mean for the fan, but, considering they recently banned another individual from attending live events after he threw a briefcase at Roman Reigns, a similar punishment should be expected.

Growing problem

More worrying for the WWE though is the ease with which these fans are evading security staff in the first place.

The former head of WWE security, Jimmy Noonan, said only last week that someone must be fired after the situation had become embarrassing. With another incident having marred one of the WWE's biggest shows of the year, there will be increasing pressure on the organization to do just that.
