WWE star Randy Orton was apparently attacked by a fan who climbed into the ring during an event in Cape Town, South Africa, on Tuesday.

Amateur video taken of the incident shows Orton pumping up the crowd and standing on a turnbuckle when an unidentified man suddenly approaches him from behind and strikes him in the groin.

Given the clear size advantage Orton had on his attacker, the man was probably lucky he was hauled away by security. However, it looked like he may have taken a kick from Orton on his way out.

"The matter is currently under investigation by the local authorities, and the South African fan is being held in jail pending criminal charges," WWE announced on its website. "The extent of Orton's injuries are unknown at this time."
