Last night during Night Of Champions, another fan jumped the railing and hit the ring. This is just the latest in embarrassing moments for the fed. It’s getting so bad, even a former employee commented it’s a piss poor job and someone should lose their job over it.
The WWE is getting upset with all of the incidents and now they’re really getting serious with this issued statement.
“WWE takes the safety of our performers very seriously and any fan entering the ring area will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
This is like your mom going “try that again and see what happens” and then nothing happens because if a person is already planning on jumping the rail, they’re already down to face the punishment. WWE is reportedly looking to pursue “the most stringent prosecution possible for all future fan incidents” including “lifetime bans to fans who jump the guard rail at events.”
Oh no! Not a ban! Please, let me come and take my money!
If the WWE wants to stop people from ring jumping, they need to go back to the old way of doing things — if a person steps into the ring, they’re fair game, and a wrestler can lay them out. It happens in the NFL, why not the WWE.
The WWE wants to ensure the safety of the performers. They don’t want anyone getting injured at the hands of a fan. They’d rather bring in old performers to do that for them.
