The official website of WWE continues to cover the Randy Orton attack story, which began at the WWE live event in Cape Town, South Africa this past Tuesday when a fan, now known to be Tshepo Sekhabi, jumped the ring and hit Orton in the groin following his match with Big E. Langston.
As reported earlier this week, WWE.com covered the story when it first happened. In fact, they even included a fan-shot video of the incident that originated on YouTube. Many had questioned whether or not the entire incident was a work, considering the fact that fans have hit the ring many times in the past and WWE never publicized such incidents on their official company website.
The coverage by WWE continued on Friday evening, when news surfaced that Sekhabi was charged and plead guilty to assault. WWE.com reported the news by updating their original article on the subject with the following addition:
The accused party pleaded guilty in court yesterday, August 1, 2013, and was charged and ordered to either pay a fine of 500 Rand or, alternatively, serve 30 days in jail.
After acknowledging his wrongfulness, the accused individual was given a three-year suspended sentence, and is not permitted to attend WWE’s Live Events in Johannesburg, South Africa, this week.
