WWE's Randy Orton Attacked By Fan
Watch the wrestling star get clocked in the ring here…
WWE's Randy Orton has been attacked in the ring by a 'fan' during a wrestling bout in Cape Town, South Africa.
A video shot by an audience member shows Orton was standing on the ropes addressing the crowd when the fan crept up behind him and clocked him in the crown jewels.
Orton initially collapsed, but quickly regained his feet in time to help security eject the fan from the ring.
Denying accusations that the ring invasion was a set-up, the WWE have now released a statement saying:
"WWE.com has learned that Randy Orton was violently attacked by an audience member during a SmackDown World Tour Live Event in Cape Town, South Africa, this evening.
"Footage of the attack was captured by a WWE fan and posted to YouTube, and shows the perpetrator striking Orton from behind. The matter is currently under investigation by the local authorities, and the South African fan is being held in jail pending criminal charges. The extent of Orton's injuries are unknown at this time."
