According to sources, there was some type of fight at the Birmingham, England hotel, where the WWE Raw stars were staying. The hotel was understaffed since there were WWE performers staying as well as a group of what was described as “kickboxing fans” who were in town for an event promoted by the International Kickboxing Federation on 4/24 in Birmingham.
The hotel lobby was said to have looked like a nightclub, with security completely overwhelmed by the sheer amount of people inside. Several of the kickboxing fans had were drunk and had words with WWE referee Jack Doan and “trying to show what tough guys they were to the fake pro wrestlers.”
Soon after the WWE referee was struck down by the kickboxing fans, several WWE wrestlers descended upon the kickboxing fans and restrained them, warning them to calm down. It was more a situation where the fans were taken down and stretched to restrain them, as opposed to a full-fledged assault on the kickboxing fans.
The kickboxing fans didn’t seem to calm down after that and was continuously starting on them again. The wrestlers and hotel security all physically removed them from the hotel. No police was called and there was no further action taken.
