There appears to be conflicting reports on who attacked Randy Orton in Cape Town, South Africa at the WWE live event. As noted earlier, several fans in attendance sent word that the attacker was a well known local wrestler that goes by the name The Blacksmith, however that doesn’t seem to be the case.
Enca.com, a local news website for South Africa is reporting that the attacker was a fan by the name of Tshepo Sekhabi. Tshepo Sekhabi, who claims he quit his job in order to attend the event, ended up with a black eye and a swollen face as a result of a kick to the face from “The Viper” Randy Orton as he was being pulled from the ring.
Sekhabi commented on the attack to the news outlet, saying, “I just don’t like Randy Orton, this was an opportunity for me so I got up there and made a name for myself.”
Sekabi was not “formally” arrested either, as originally reported by WWE, but instead was given a five year ban from the casino resort where the WWE event was being held.
