If you’ve ever attended a WWE or NXT live event then you probably noticed that the ringside area is surrounded by barricades. The barricades are meant to keep the fans away from the talent, but from time to time fans like to test their luck and see if they can jump in the ring.

Friday night at the NXT live event in Tampa, FL, a fan jumped over the barricade and rushed the ring during a tag team match which featured Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish facing off against Heavy Machinery and Kassius Ohno.
According to fans in attendance, Kyle O’Reilly reportedly kicked the fan in the face after he entered the ring, and he was then pulled away by security. You can check out a video of security taking the fan down below.

There’s a lesson to be learned from all of this, and that is if you jump the barricade and enter the ring at a WWE or NXT live event there’s a pretty good chance you’re going to get kicked in the face.
