An unknown spectator objected to the way one of the wrestlers behaved during an IWE Pro Wrestling performance on Saturday evening. Joe Black, who was playing the character of a heel throughout the event, was having fun with the audience members in his role as a nasty person. But one fan was not pleased.

Over the weekend, during an indie wrestling event in Georgia, a prominent wrestler was headbutted by a spectator – and the hit was so powerful that it sparked a melee at the stadium.
On Saturday night, it all happened at the IWE Pro-wrestling show in Augusta as indie wrestling star Joe Black was making his way to the ring for his bout.
Videos have emerged on the internet showing Black flipping off one of the fans, who replied by headbutting the wrestler. A furious brawl ensued between the two.
As of right now, specifics regarding what transpired are few, but the film was horrific.
Fans have condemned the fan on social media. Noting that no matter what a heel does on a wrestling program, you can’t act aggressively towards them. This comes after a few instances of fans coming too close to wrestlers during shows. Including one on WWE Raw last year.
Seth Rollins was ambushed by a fan during a Raw concert in New York in November 2021. Which you can read about by clicking here.
According to reports, the fan was communicating with someone posing as Rollins online. And sent the account many gift cards in return for a chance to wrestle.

Obviously, he wasn’t speaking to Rollins, which is something we’ve seen a lot more of in recent months.
Becky Lynch took to Twitter earlier this month to remind fans. WWE performers will never solicit money or presents from fans. Lynch described the experience as “sickening” after seeing several cases of this happening with fans.
