Having fans is a beautiful thing, as crowds’ sheer love and admiration for the talent possessed by others has created entire industries' worth of stars. Unfortunately, there are also many dangers that come with being a highly recognizable celebrity, especially when your presence so deeply affects people that they cross the boundaries of human decency. Indeed, many stars have been victims of stalkers, public humiliation, and even murders.
Wrestling star Seth Rollins was recently attacked by a fan on live TV during the filming of WWE's flagship show, 'Raw.' Rollins was on the runway leading to the wrestling ring when a spectator, who had apparently hopped over the barricade, tackled him to the ground. The two were seen rolling around before security guards intervened and pulled the fan off Rollins. Rollins was clearly blindsided by the attack, which left him with a swollen lip. The attacker in question was a 24-year-old wrestling fan who was immediately handed over to the police to be charged with assault. That's live TV for you!
