Security was at its worst yet again with reports that another one of their stars just got assaulted by a fan recently in Bayamon, Puerto Rico.
Alberto Del Rio was the unfortunate victim this time around per the Bleacher Report, receiving an unprovoked attack while the current WWE United States champion was working on a World Wrestling Council (WWC) show at the Ruben Rodriguez Coliseum against Ray Gonzalez.
Del Rio was fulfilling his outstanding commitment with the WWC that is run by former WWE Hall of Famer Carlos Colon.
At a certain point of the match, Del Rio was seen rolling out of the ring to apparently get some time out when a fan suddenly grabs him and starts hitting him with some wrestling moves to the back. Gonzales and security come rushing to Del Rio at that point while the fan gets escorted out of the venue.
Gonzales shield Del Rio from that point and eventually tosses him back to the ring in what seemed like a slick move to pick up from the ruckus.
According to Cagesideseats, Gonzales eventually won the match via disqualification when Del Rio’s brother (El Hijo de Dos Caras aka Memo Montenegro) intervenes to break up the Figure Four applied by Gonzales on Del Rio.
This latest episode brings to mind previous incidents that happened back in August involving Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose.
Reigns got that hit to the back of his head with a replica of the Money in the Bank briefcase as he was performing against Bray Wyatt at the time.
Dean Ambrose almost got attacked by a fan (reportedly wielding a knife) on an episode of WWE Smackdown back in August as reported by TMZ.
Seth Rollins was not spared as well from lax security though the fan merely tried to walk up along the ramp alongside the Architect.
Regardless if there was any harm intended or not, the fact remains that security has left a lot to be desired lately in the said venues and circles.
Thankfully as well, nothing untoward has happened to any of the stars who have been victim to these fan attacks. However the fact remains that security guidelines and monitoring need to be improved soon for the safety of their stars.
While there are fans who tend to go overboard for one reason or another, it all falls in the hands of proper security measures. The last thing that anyone would want is to see anyone getting hurt during special events.
