A fan at Friday night’s NXT house show in Tampa, Florida thought it was a good idea to jump into the ring. He was wrong.
During a match between Adam Cole, Bobby Fish, and Kyle O’Reilly against Heavy Machinery and Kassius Ohno, a fan entered the ring and was promptly kicked in the face by O’Reilly. While no one has posted a video of the face kicking, multiple tweets confirm it happened.
Aftermath of O’Reilly’s kick, which includes the fan being hauled away by security, has been posted.
In the video, the fan finally regains his footing a bit near the end, but he seems out of it when initially dragged off. And his “what did I do?” shrug as he’s being taken to the back confirms that he’s not exactly sure what just happened. A legit kick to the face by a trained professional will do that to you.
The fan was reportedly arrested, but it seems getting kicked in the face by O’Reilly is punishment enough.
Note to fans who think it’s a good idea to jump into the wrestling ring during an event. It’s not. It’s an even worse idea to do it in a six-man tag match featuring Kyle O’Reilly, someone who trains in jiu-jitsu and kickboxing.
For those wondering, Undisputed picked up the victory in the match.
