WWE superstar Dean Ambrose was nearly attacked by a fan during the taping of Thursday night Smackdown in Providence, Rhode Island.
According to eyewitnesses, the attack happened right after the taping. As you can see in the video, the fan jumps out of the barricades and attempts to attack Ambrose from behind as he made his way back to the locker room after his match. The fan, according to some people at the taping, was trying to stab the star with a knife.
Nevertheless, the attacker never got the chance to complete his mission, as he was tackled to the ground by security. It is unclear what happened to him after that.
Ambrose was unharmed.
