Monday Night RAW was at the Wells Fargo Center last night, and other than booing Roman Reigns like their lives depended on it, the crowd got into the action in another way: According to PW Mania, a fan was removed from the building after punching wrestler Braun Strowman in the face during a post-air dark match. The match was between the The Wyatt Family and a team of Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler and Roman Reigns. During that same match, Luke Harper apparently suffered a knee injury.
The punch seems like a relatively minor incident – though “WWE stated that they could look at pressing charges for all future incidents” in 2015 – so why this post? Because it gives me a chance to put up one of my favorite videos of all time. The Wyatt Family’s Luke Harper, formerly Brodie Lee, once wrestled a kid I was friends with in college. This is how the match started:
Sometimes I watch that video on loop until my jaw starts to hurt.
