Sometimes in professional wrestling, fans can be downright scary.
Assuming they aren't under the influence of narcotics, you have to wonder what the hell some people are thinking when they decide to jump the barrier and climb into the ring. What do they hope to accomplish, outside of a few seconds of airtime?
Do they think it's real and someone actually needs help?
Assuming they just want attention, or a great story to tell their frat buddies, it's probably not the worst thing in the world to say you got your ass whipped by one of the big dogs in WWE or WCW, like when Eddie Guerrero smoked some fool who tried to get involved.
But how do you explain getting your shit stomped by Mr. Noodle from Sesame Street?
That's none other than the late Brian Hildebrand, who was working under the WCW ring name of Referee Mark Curtis. Following this bout, he was nicknamed "The Shooter" for intercepting a fan who tried to get into the ring, first stunning him with a running knee, then dropping down to sink in a guillotine choke, MMA style.
Security would take over from there.
Hildebrand would die from cancer in 1999 at just 37 years old, but will forever live in infamy for his impromptu butt-whoopin' on WCW Monday Nitro.
