The real name of the local independent wrestler that attacked (or "attacked") Randy Orton at the WWE live event in Cape Town, South Africa on Tuesday has been identified as 20-year-old Tshepo Sekhabi.

According to the South African website, Orton is free to pursue criminal charges against Sekhabi for undisclosed injuries to his groin. The attacker apparently suffered a black eye after being kicked in the head by Orton. He was not arrested but was thrown out of the hotel that was hosting the event.

Richard Reacts: This is the only "official" report I've seen of the incident and I use the term official very loosely here. If accurate, this report already differs from WWE's claim the fan was "being held in jail pending criminal charges." At this point who knows but we should find out one way or the other soon enough.
