After the drama had ensued and once the fan was detained, another spectator in the crowd spotted Becky Lynch, Rollins’ real-life wife, checking in on her husband from behind the entrance ramp.
Rollins was tackled by a fan who had managed to run down from the mid-level seating. The man in question managed to wrestle the Superstar to the ground before security, referees and officials intervened.
The altercation could be seen on the live broadcast initially, before the cameras quickly cut away once they realised that this was not part of the script.
Rollins, whose real name is Colby Lopez, yelled at the man as he was being taken away and attempted to stay in character, but there was no further interaction between the pair.

The fellow WWE star can be seen peering round the corner as she tries to figure out what’s happening.
Later on she confronted Liv Morgan, the number one contender to her RAW Women’s Championship, which ended in a fiery encounter between the two.
"WWE takes the safety of its performers very seriously," WWE said in a statement to ESPN.
"The individual who attacked Seth Rollins has been turned over to the NYPD and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."News Now - Sport News
