24 year old Elisah Spencer has been identified as the man who attempted to attack WWE star Seth Rollins during last night's edition of Monday Night Raw at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.  

Spencer, according to ESPN's Marc Raimondi, has been charged by the New York Police Department with attempted assault and attempted violation of arts and cultural affairs (aka disrupting a live sporting event.)   As of this writing, there is no word on a court date for Spencer, nor whether he is still being held in custody.

Following a planned angle where Rollins attacked and laid out Finn Balor, Spencer climbed over a guard rail to enter the WWE entrance area, attempting to tackle Rollins as he returned backstage.  Rollins went down but grabbed Spencer with a front facelock as soon as they hit the ground.  As Spencer slipped out, WWE referee Eddie Orengo dove down on Spencer, holding him down.    Several other officials and Barclays Center security staff dove on the pile as Rollins moved away. Spencer was escorted up the stairs out of the Barclays Center and into the concourse of the arena, where he was taken into custody by NYPD.

Rollins was not injured beyond a swelled lip and returned later on in the evening to take part in the main event of Raw.  We are told Rollins declined medical attention.

WWE issued the following to when asked for comment: “WWE takes the safety of its performers very seriously. The individual who attacked Seth Rollins has been turned over to the NYPD and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

This is the second instance of a fan attacking a WWE personality inside the Barclays Center.  In April 2019, a crazed fan tackled WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart, also knocking down Natalya, in the midst of the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony as the pair were inducting the late Jim Neidhart.   How that criminal case was resolved is unknown.

The attempted attack by Rollins has been picked up by a number of mainstream outlets beyond ESPN, including FOX News and The New York Post.
