Seth Rollins, much like anyone else would have, thought it was “terrifying” when a fan bull-rushed him Monday at the Barclays Center.
In the wake of the incident, TMZ caught up with Rollins at the airport in Los Angeles, where the wrestler relived the ordeal.
“It’s terrifying, brother,” Rollins said. “It happened very quickly. I was mostly just reacting and hoping that our security would come and do their job. Which they did very quickly. And then was just trying to detach and move on. Hope that everybody is okay.”
Rollins was ambushed by a fan as he walked back from his match during “Monday Night Raw.” Some of those in attendance caught the tense moment on camera, in which Rollins — whose real name is Colby Lopez — can be seen trying to push the fan off of him.
“WWE takes the safety of its performers very seriously,” WWE said in a statement. “The individual who attacked Seth Rollins has been turned over to the NYPD and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

Elisah Spencer, 24, of Red Hook was arrested by New York City police and charged with attempted assault and disrupting a live sporting event, cops said. He was released on a desk appearance ticket, according to authorities.
Rollins, thankfully, said that he did not suffer any serious injuries in the ambush. Understandably, he would like to see Spencer banned from WWE shows.
“I think as a precedence he probably should not be allowed at the events,” Rollins said.
