You might want to work on that. There are a lot of ways for fans to enjoy a wrestling show, but the one constant is that there is a barrier between where the fans can go and the wrestlers themselves. That is a key line, as it keeps both the wrestlers and the fans safe. It is not a good idea for someone to cross over that barrier, but that was the case in a huge way.

According to Fightful Select, a fan snuck backstage at last week’s AEW tapings in Long Island, New York by posing as an extra. The fan got into the locker room and sat in Dax Harwood’s chair before moving to a chair belonging to the Blade. The wrestlers then realized something was wrong and began questioning him about his trainer, with the fan citing Jeff Hardy. Maxwell Jacob Friedman and Dax Harwood ejected the fan from the locker room and taking him to an AEW official. The fan had tried to do the same thing at a Boston event but was stopped. UBS Arena security was said to be at fault for the incident.

That could have been worse. Check out who was waiting on the fan:

Opinion: Well that could have been a lot worse. This isn’t the best look for security, but at least nothing bad wound up happening. It isn’t a good sign that the wrestlers themselves have to act as security, but at least they were able to take care of things before they got even further out of hand. The fan seems to be a bit out there, but thankfully it didn’t get a lot worse than it could have been.
