What's the story?

According to the reports, a bizarre incident occurred during this week's RAW. On Monday, October 2nd in Pueblo, Colorado, a fan attempted to steal the WWE Championship belt.

In case you didn't know...

This is the second incident involving in a fan in the past week. A few days ago at an NXT Live event in Tampa, Florida, a fan entered the ring during a six-man tag match involving The Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Bobby Fish, and Kyle O'Reilly).

The fan was greeted with a roundhouse kick to his face from O'Reilly.

The heart of the matter

The fan attempted to rush the timekeeper's area to take the title during the main event of Jinder Mahal v. Shinsuke Nakamura. The fan was quickly tackled by the security and was taken away from the scene.

According to Ringside News' report, it is unknown if the fan tried to enter the ring, and there wasn't any footage of the incident at the time of this writing.

Obviously anyone attempting to enter a WWE ring could be charged with trespassing; however, it is interesting if there would be any attempted theft charges brought against this fan for trying to take the WWE Championship.

What's next?

The WWE Championship will be defended this Sunday where the champion, Jinder Mahal, will take on Shinsuke Nakamura at Hell In A Cell. The Smackdown Live Commissioner, Shane McMahon, will take on Kevin Owens inside the cell in the other main event.

Author's take...

There are many examples of fans trying to enter the ring area without being invited, and none of those stories ended well. It baffles me that there are idiots that still try to do so today.

At least we know that this fan will never be allowed into a WWE event ever again, and may end up being in jail for a certain period.
