• “I had a legitimate beef but as a grown man I could have settled it a different way” – Elisah Spencer On Attacking Seth Rollins
For attacking WWE Superstar Seth Rollins on this week’s RAW, 24-year-old Elisah Spencer was charged with attempted assault and attempted violation of arts and cultural affairs (disrupting live sporting event).
WWE issued the following statement:
“WWE takes the safety of its performers very seriously. The individual who attacked Seth Rollins has been turned over to the NYPD and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
Rollins said the following about this incident to TMZ:
“It’s terrifying, brother. It happened very quickly.
I was mostly just reacting and hoping that our security would come and do their job. Which they did very quickly. And then was just trying to detach and move on. Hope that everybody is okay.
Once the tackle happened I knew what was going on. The guy was barreling around the corner.
No, no serious injuries. Nothing like that. I was safe, we were safe. Everything was okay.”
When asked what punishment that fan deserves, Rollins said:
“I think as a precedence he probably should not be allowed at the events.”
As we noted earlier, a Twitter user found Elisah Spencer’s Instagram page (the guy who attacked Seth Rollins on RAW) and shared information on how Spencer was scammed by a person pretending to be Seth Rollins:
“The guy attacked Seth because he was messaging a definite fake account and believed it and the ‘business deal’ went the wrong way.
This kid’s been planning this since 2019 because he messaged a fake Seth Rollins account and he just seemed to eventually stop replying.
This account is really scary after Seth beat Dominik he gets mad about it and says ‘its payback time for you say your last prayers and btw how your wife with her pregnancy.’
The fake Seth seemed to have scammed this dude out of hundreds of dollars and then got the guys ‘bae’ arrested because of a fake check. This is sad all around.”

Spencer then released a video where he talks about why he attacked Rollins. You can watch it below:
Here’s what he said:
“Good morning guys, I’m out. That was me on WWE. I was booked from Goldberg and Vince McMahon and I jumped over the barricade because I told Vince McMahon I had personal beef with Colby Lopez (Seth Rollins’ real name).
This man did not tell Colby I was going to be there. And the personal beef is between me and Colby and he knows what he’s done. So as a…related to the Tribal Chief and Tribal Chief cousin, Royal 4 and Fatu Instagram, I did what I had to do.
I made my family proud because we are the ones. And WWE Officials, I appreciate you for taking me off Colby Lopez, but you know what was about to happen.
I did it for Rikishi! It did it for The Rock! I did it for all my Tribal Family, and I appreciate this message worldwide.”
During an interview with The Daily News, Spencer apologized for his actions:
“I apologized to the WWE for my actions. I had a legitimate beef but as a grown man I could have settled it a different way. If I saw him today I wouldn’t attack him. I’ve moved on.”
TMZ reports that Spencer is scheduled to appear in court for his hearing in December.
