Braun Strowman attacked by WWE fan during RAW dark match

Published 20 Comments

The dark match following Monday Night Raw in Philadelphia last night was a bit of a disaster for The Wyatt Family.

Luke Harper looks like he has suffered a serious knee injury following an innocuous looking slip in the ring that led to him writhing in agony on the floor and being escorted from the arena with a potential torn ACL, which would keep him out for between six and nine months - the same as Seth Rollins. 

But that wasn't the end of it. Instead, some fan in the crowd decided to get involved in the action by assaulting Braun Strowman.

Strowman Struck

Yep. An idiot in the crowd actually attacked Strowman during the dark match. That's the Braun Strowman, potentially the biggest guy on the WWE roster right now and a legitimate former strongman champion.

During the match, Strowman gets super kicked by Dolph Ziggler while holding on to the ropes and falls to the floor, before going over to the barrier.

While he's there, a fan in the front row stands up and proceeds to grab Strowman's head, almost clawing at it as the big man rests on the outside.

As you can probably imagine, the 32-year-old doesn't take too kindly to this and points the man out to security, who is swiftly taken away.

You can check out a video of the incident here. The start of the match shows Harper's leg bending at an unnatural angle as he gets injured, then shows the assault from the fan at 1:25.

This is just the next in a long line of fan-wrestler incidents in the WWE, which seem to have become a concerning theme in the past year or two.

Sheamus had a bottle thrown at him during a house show, while all three former members of The Shield - Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose - have been involved in incidents, with Reigns being hit in the head by a faux-Money in the Bank briefcase.

Really though, how dumb do you have to be to put your hands on the 6-foot-8, 400lb behemoth that is Braun Strowman? Damn.
