Seth Rollins has a history of problems with fans impersonating him. It was reported after Rollins was jumped by a fan on last nights WWE Raw that the attacker was the victim of an online catfishing scheme. A person pretending to be Seth Rollins suckered 24-year old Elisah Spencer into believing the two had a business relationship.
Ultimately, it was all a scam and the real Rollins had nothing to do with the scheme. Spencer was asked by the imposter to send cash and gift cards. When he ran out of money, the fake Seth stopped responding. Rollins shared an astonishingly similar tale in 2019 when he was promoting WWE on Chicago Hip-Hop station WCGI.
“Our fans are super passionate and they’re the lifeblood of what we do. But man, sometimes it’s a little overboard… I had a woman come to my house.
Social media is crazy in this era too, because of all the catfishing. So what will happen is like, these people will pretend to be me and engage these fans of mine and try to extort them for Amazon gift cards or money or whatever. And this one woman showed up at my house not long ago. Twice, two times! I had to call the police on her.”
The interview occurred two years to the date from when Rollins was attacked in Brooklyn. The details are almost identical to those that surfaced when alleged screenshots of a conversation between Elisah Spencer and the fake Seth Rollins emerged. It’s eerie to think that this has happened to the superstar more than once.
Fortunately, Seth was not injured in the attack. He suffered a contusion to his face and what appeared to be a fat lip. He refused medical treatment at the scene. Spencer was arrested immediately by the NYPD. You can check out Seth Rollins’ disturbing story below.
