For a long time there, Vince McMahon was accused of not doing enough to protect his performers in the ring. Whenever an incident with a fan would take place, WWE generally did not go after the individual with their strong legal department. That opened the door for others to jump the rails or throw things into the ring. After the latest incident with Roman Reigns at Night of Champions, management has now decided to add more security to live events.

This is another case of a wrestling promotion being ran by someone without a wrestling background.
