Video: WWE star Randy Orton gets punched in the nads by a random fan

Professional wrestlers are used to receiving big hits – especially below the belt – but it’s not often that you see a fan getting involved in the ring. Sadly, for Randy Orton, that’s exactly what happened at a show in South Africa recently.

Last night saw the stars of the WWE performing at the Grand West Arena in Cape Town, South Africa, and the show was going well until an irate fan decided to step into the ring.

Orton knocked out Big E Langston with his signature move the ‘RKO’. That's when Orton decided to stand on the ropes in celebration, but the random wrestling fan somehow wriggled his way into the ring and blindsided Orton with an uppercut to the nads. It doesn’t look pretty…

The blow knocked Orton straight to the ground, but he was quick to get back on his feet in order to seek revenge. He tried to kick the random fan as he was being dragged from the ring, but luckily for the fan in question, Orton missed.

WWE.com's Staff provided some more details: “WWE.com has learned that Randy Orton was violently attacked by an audience member during a SmackDown World Tour Live Event in Cape Town, South Africa, this evening.

“Footage of the attack was captured by a WWE fan and posted to YouTube, and shows the perpetrator striking Orton from behind. The matter is currently under investigation by the local authorities, and the South African fan is being held in jail pending criminal charges.

“The extent of Orton's injuries are unknown at this time.”
