    I am legitimately curious as to why WWE is giving this so much acknowledgment. It’s either one big work, which I’m not sure it is, or they REALLY want to make an example out of someone, insuring people think twice about jumping the barricade.

      Considering everything, I personally thing it is that WWE wants to make an example of a guy who thought he was going to make a name for himself and get noticed. Fan incidents have been on the rise, so when an idiot pulls something so blatantly stupid such as this, why not show that WWE is willing to prosecute? It’s not really any different that if I were to attend a STL Cardnals game and hop the rails. I’d be arrested and charged with criminal trespass.

      Look at this way. WWE posted an article to report the guy was fined $50.78… I’m just sayin’
