Video: Fan attacks Randy Orton at WWE event in South Africa



A crazed fan somehow made his way onto the ring and attacked pro wrestler Randy Orton during a live WWE event in South Africa on Tuesday.

The moment comes around the 0:30 mark in this video and shows the fan sneaking up behind Orton like a coward and delivering a swift blow to the groin from behind.

Orton fell to the ring while security quickly wrangled up the perpetrator and took him away.

WWE has issued the following statement on the matter:

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.

It seems as though this scene was as real as they come.
