Arena Issues Statement On WWE Fan Altercation


Peoria Civic Center has now commented on an incident at a WWE live event last weekend where a fan threw a drink at Scarlett.

As has become customary in recent months, Karrion Kross was facing Drew McIntyre at a WWE live event in Illinois on Saturday, 12th November. Whilst McIntyre would go on to win the match, it is what happened at ringside during the match which caught the attention of most.

After slapping ‘The Scottish Warrior’, Scarlett was ejected by the referee. However, after this happened she was doused by a drink which was thrown by a fan in the crowd. The fan and their family were ejected from the arena, and Scarlett was unharmed in the incident and continued to play her role.

The Director for Sales and Marketing at the Peoria Civic Center where the event took place has now commented on what took place via local news outlet WMBD News.

We are aware of the incident that took place at the WWE event on Saturday, November 12. Fortunately, our Peoria Civic Center security team along with the Peoria Police quickly identified the individuals responsible and escorted them out of the building for the remainder of the show. While we were disappointed in the actions of a couple and the brief distraction they caused, over 4,000 enthusiastic WWE fans were treated to a very entertaining event.

The local police department has also confirmed that no arrests were made and no charges were filed.

Despite the fact that the situation could have had a rather more serious outcome as is often the case when a fan decides to get involved with someone on the show, Scarlett has taken the high ground and given a humorous take on what went down.
