Crazed Fan Attacks Randy Orton In The Ring At WWE Event

Crazed Fan Attacks Randy Orton In The Ring At WWE EventWWE star Randy Orton is fully equipped to withstand the body blows he incurs during the course of a 10-minute bout in the ring. However, he wasn’t prepared for what happened on Tuesday night, when a fan entered the ring and did his best impression of a WWE heel during a company event in Cape Town, South Africa.

‘Violently attacked’

WWE.com’s Staff provided details:

WWE.com has learned that Randy Orton was violently attacked by an audience member during a SmackDown World Tour Live Event in Cape Town, South Africa, this evening. Footage of the attack was captured by a WWE fan and posted to YouTube, and shows the perpetrator striking Orton from behind. The matter is currently under investigation by the local authorities, and the South African fan is being held in jail pending criminal charges. The extent of Orton’s injuries are unknown at this time.


‘Uppercut to the groin’

Orton stood on the ropes with his arms raised in victory. As reported by David Kruse of PWInsider.com, the fan then jumped the railing and blindsided the wrestler with an uppercut to the groin. Undeterred by the fan’s attempt to castrate him, Orton’s in-ring celebration quickly turned to rage.

Orton then attempted to kick the fan and gave him the bird as security forcefully removed the attacker from the ring. Kruse reported that the fan might have also attacked Langston ringside during the show.

Mark Cavendish Hit With Urine At Tour De France

Mark Cavendish Hit With Urine At Tour De FranceUrine testing is nothing new in the sport of cycling, as doping has run rampant over the past several years. But at the Tour de France on Wednesday, a fan took things to a new extreme, throwing urine on cyclist Mark Cavendish, according to Sky Sports.

‘Involvement in a crash’

The incident occurred during Wednesday’s Stage 11 time trial, which stretched from Avranches to Mont-Saint-Michel. The motivations behind the fan’s actions are still unclear, but Sky Sports speculates that it may stem from Cavendish’s involvement in a crash that took out Tom Veelers during Stage 10 on Tuesday.

Despite the belief by many that Cavendish was to blame for the wreck, he was exonerated from any wrongdoing by race officials, according to William Fotheringham of The Guardian.


‘Sprint standings’

Perhaps that explanation wasn’t satisfactory for the fan in question, as the onlooker went to great lengths in order to express dismay with Cavendish’s actions.

Cavendish won’t be a factor in the overall standings, as he currently sits in 148th place, but he is one of the world’s most accomplished sprinters. He is third in the sprint standings, but he has a chance to make some headway as the event continues. It will be interesting to see if this incident has any effect on his performance.

What do you think was the motive behind that fan’s malicious act? Feel free to share your thoughts and opinions with us!
