AEW Dynamite has been offering fans an alternative to WWE in the world of professional wrestling. Tony Khan’s roster boasts some of the biggest stars in the industry. Just like WWE, however, sometimes fans can get a little out of control.
At this week’s Dynamite taping in Worcester, MA, a couple of AEW talents had a run-in with a fan. During the taping of Friday Night Rampage, Lee Moriarty wrestled a match against Matt Sydal. After Moriarty got the win, manager Stokely Hathaway got involved. As Moriarty and Hathaway were leaving, they got into an altercation with the fan.
There are not a lot of details about the incident. The report came in to Dave Meltzer, who described what he knew on Wrestling Observer Radio. The nature of the confrontation isn’t fully clear.
“There was an altercation between Stokely and Lee and a fan as they were leaving, which I’m sure won’t be on TV.”
AEW has been no stranger to unruly fan behavior. In 2020, a spectator tried to attack MJF. Chris Jericho also had a run-in in 2021. On the WWE side, Seth Rollins was famously attacked during a live episode of Monday Night Raw.
It does not appear anyone was hurt or that the confrontation became physical. Hopefully, everything cooled down after the incident. It’s a dangerous time to be a performer, and even pro wrestlers are no exception when it comes to out of control fans.
