Rollins was tackled on the entrance ramp by a fan who jumped the barricade. After his match with Finn Balor, Rollins was heading to the back when a fan suddenly appeared and speared him. Referees and security personnel soon attacked the spectator, who was then escorted from the arena.
WWE issued a statement saying that it takes its performers’ safety very seriously. The person who attacked Seth Rollins has been turned over to the NYPD and will face the harshest punishment possible. This is the second time a fan has breached the security screen at Barclays Center to assault a wrestler. During the 2019 WWE Hall of Fame event, a fan rushed the late professional wrestler Bret Hart into the ring.

The fan incident happened the day after Rollins competed in the pay-per-view 5-on-5 elimination tag match for the Survivor Series at the same arena. Team SmackDown members Drew McIntyre, Jeff Hardy, King Woods, Happy Corbin, and Sheamus were defeated by Rollins and RAW superstars Finn Balor, Kevin Owens, Bobby Lashley, and Austin Theory. The match’s lone survivor was Rollins.
Seth Rollins was defeated by Logan Paul on WWE Raw.
Logan Paul made an appearance on Monday Night Raw this week to host a special Impaulsive show, and he ended up defeating Seth Rollins for the second time in three weeks. Rollins cut off Paul’s microphone during the production truck section and then began playing his entrance music as he made his approach to the ring. Instead of exchanging words, Rollins threw Paul to the ground right away, and the two began fighting outside the ring before a security team intervened to separate them.

Paul was pulled away by the security personnel as Rollins attempted to jump from the top turnbuckle while he had placed him on a commentary table. Then Paul crept up and gave Rollins a right-hand strike, knocking him out completely.
In interviews, Rollins has frequently said that he despises Paul and doesn’t like having him in the WWE. The famous YouTuber will compete at WrestleMania this year for the third year in a row and in his fifth match since joining the organisation.
