- The WWE fan who attacked Randy Orton in the ring at Tuesday night’s WWE Live Event from Cape Town, South Africa is 20-year-old pro wrestler Tshepo Sekhabi, known in the ring as “Jozi the Wrestling Machine.”
In an interview with South African news website ENCA.com, Sekhabi claims he quit his job in order to attend the event. The attack was premeditated – and he ended up with a black eye and a swollen face as a result of Randy Orton kicking him in the face as he was being pulled from the ring by security.
As for why he decided to jump the security gate, hit the ring and low blow Randy Orton, he told ENCA:
“I just don’t like Randy Orton, this was an opportunity for me so I got up there and made a name for myself.”
Contrary to previous reports, Sekhabi was not “formally” arrested but was given a five year ban from the casino resort where the WWE event was being held.
WWE was contacted about whether Randy Orton would apologize for kicking the fan in the face. They issued a statement, saying:
“Randy Orton was the victim in this incident and suffered an injured groin.”
