A fan jumped in the ring at NXT’s Tampa house show, so Kyle O’Reilly kicked him in the face

Here’s something WWE won’t market as “You’ve got to come to house shows, because ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN!” even though it’s pretty amazing.

Unfortunately, that amazing comes with a side of scary, as the incident was prompted by the latest instance of an idiotic and/or mentally unstable fan deciding to get in the ring and get physical with the performers.

It happened during a match between The Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Bobby Fish, and Kyle O'Reilly) and Heavy Machinery & Kassius Ohno... which is the wrong match to run-in on, as the guy learned. There’s no footage of it that we know of yet, but multiple reports from others in attendance say that O’Reilly - who practices jiu-jitsu and kickboxing as part of his training and uses them in the ring - kicked the dude right in the face. Security then pulled him from the ring and out of the arena, where he was reportedly arrested.

There are lots of pictures and even some video of the aftermath:

Maybe that will teach people not to do this crap.
