The news of a lapse in WWE's security at a live event has become all too common in recent times and the events which unfolded at Night of Champions last weekend proved as much.
With The Wyatt Family, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose in the ring, the WWE Universe was eagerly awaiting the announcement of who would team up with Reigns and Ambrose.
Sadly however, this proved to be the perfect opportunity for yet another thoughtless WWE fan to make his way into the ring, dressed as one of The Shield, and approach Roman Reigns.

It is clear to see there were two parties at fault here; not only the fan but, yet again, the company's security who were in attendance.
Not only was this man able to make his way through the crowd, he could jump the barricade and then somehow make his way into the ring itself.

Although he was soon tackled and taken away by WWE security, this was all too late and raised yet another question about what protection the company has in place for its wrestlers.
One silver lining we are able to take away from this incident, however, is that, as Wrestle Zone reports, 37-year-old Oscar Ramirez - the man who committed the crime - has since been charged by the police.
He was charged with criminal trespassing with no forced entry and will serve ten days jail time, which, in comparison to the one and a half years he could have received should the case have gone to jail, is a huge let off.
Unfortunately, this event comes almost three weeks after another fan managed to jump the barricade and walk with Seth Rollins down the entrance ramp during an episode of Monday Night Raw.
Combine this with the attempted attack a fan tried to make on Dean Ambrose, as well as Roman Reigns being hit with a replica Money In The Bank Briefcase in a separate incident earlier this year, and it becomes clear why questions are being asked about WWE's security.
Although it is understandably difficult to control several thousands of fans at so many events, the number of occurrences like this lately mean there is no excuse when someone is able to get so close to those working under WWE.
The talent on the WWE roster are merely doing their job and it is the carelessness of people who carry out acts such as this who ruin the programming for the rest of the WWE Universe.
Ultimately, WWE must change something about their security in order to protect not just its wrestlers but the rest of its staff and other fans, too.
The punishment Ramirez received is a start, but even harsher penalties should surely be brought in some time soon.
Fans like this do not deserve their ticket if they have such ridiculous intentions, so should face lifetime bans from live events which WWE previously brought into place for such people.
