Kip Sabian Talks A Fan Headbutting Him In The Middle Of A Match

AEW Star Kip Sabian recently took part in a virtual signing with Captain’s Corner, where he discussed a variety of topics such as approaching an older couple during an Indie show and messing with them as they were getting super aggressive.

Kip Sabian said:

“So I’m doing the show and there’s this old dude and his Mrs. in the front row and they’re popping off. They’re getting super aggressive so I’m like, you know, what am I gonna do? I’m gonna mess with these guys. So I started messing with him and I started messing with his wife. I don’t remember what I said, but I said something like… what a real man looks like to this guy’s face.”

Kip Sabian also discussed how the male fan head-butted him, but he no-sold it and just laughed at his face.

Kip Sabian said:

“So he gets right in my face and I’m staring him down and he literally leans over the guardrail and just headbutts me full-on on the nose, mid-match… (He was like) 70, 60, 70 (years old). But at this moment, I’m like, what can I do? Because getting head-butted on the nose just sucks so I completely no-sold it and just laughed in his face but then went back in the ring and cried a little bit to myself because it hurt so much or when I got backstage… I think I let him stay (in the crowd instead of signaling for security)… I mean I guess I was doing my job correctly.”
