A few months ago there was a worrying spate of incidents in which WWE fans were interfering with matches. From throwing home-made briefcases at Roman Reigns to several instances of fans rushing the ring itself, there was a feeling at the time that things were getting out of hand.

Fan interference isn't a new thing in the WWE, however, and members of the Universe have been trying to get their five minutes of fame for years.

And we've been given a reminder of that this week after video footage emerged online showing Triple H "saving" Stone Cold Steve Austin from a fan attack back in the 1990s. It's safe to say that fan regretted his decision almost immediately as HHH got his hands on him.

The footage was uploaded yesterday by a pro wrestling fan page on Facebook called 'The SpOtlight', and has already gone viral with over 368,000 views.

What probably seemed like a good idea at the time he jumped into the ring to confront Austin quickly turned into a nightmare situation for the fan, as HHH took just seconds to switch from selling an injury to handing out a Suplex to the unsuspecting fan.

What followed was a pretty definitive beat down.

As you can see in the footage, even the referee got involved with a few kicks to the fan's back as Triple H held him down and waited for security to finally kick in.

Some fans may think HHH went too far in manhandling the intruder, but he wasn't to know the fan's intentions. All he saw was some random dude making a b-line for Stone Cold.

Having said that, if the same thing were to happen in today's modern era, it is highly unlikely Triple H or any other WWE Superstar would be able to get away with such a physical response - even if it would go down well with the rest of the crowd.
