Braun Strowman Attacked by Fan, Luke Harper Injured After WWE Raw
WWE star Braun Strowman was on the receiving end of an attack by a fan after Monday Night Raw went off the air.
According to reports, a fan was ejected from the arena after punching Strowman in the face during the dark match main event, which pit The Wyatt Family against Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler and Roman Reigns, in a match exclusively for the fans in attendance in Philly. It was a pretty bad night for The Wyatts, actually, as Luke Harper suffered a knee injury at the start of the match, and had to be helped to the back by trainers. Bray Wyatt ended up taking the pinfall in the match, and considering how Bray has been protected in the past, it wouldn’t surprise me if Harper was supposed to take the fall. But being a professional and calling an audible when necessary is part of the job. It helps that guys like Bray are as good as they are. Now, if only WWE would actually do something substantial with the guy, rather than the stop-and-start pushes that have characterized his run. Honestly, I feel the same way about Harper, a guy who’s far more useful as a potential midcard champion than as a glorified job guy. I wish all the best for his recovery.
As for Strowman, the giant is fine. The fan, however, is probably in for a world of legal trouble, as WWE has publicly stated in the past that they would look into pressing charges in cases where fans get involved in the action. I don’t blame them either, considering the number of fan attacks in the past year (mostly centering on former members of the Shield, between Roman Reigns getting pelted with a replica Money in the Bank briefcase, Dean Ambrose getting jumped by a fan on the way to the ring, and Seth Rollins getting upstaged by a fan who decided to sneak up and join his entrance).
