BROOKLYN — Shocking video posted to social media shows a fan barrel into WWE superstar Seth Rollins during Monday night’s Barclays Center event.

The move was something more likely seen in the ring, but instead, the fan sprinted seemingly out of nowhere and hurled at the wrestler, tackling him to the ground.

Videos show the mans legs wrapped around the wrestler’s head for a brief moment before WWE referees and security staff apprehended the attacker.

NYPD officials told PIX11 News the suspect was taken into custody and charges were pending.
