    Various sites are now reporting that the fan (Elisah Spencer) that attacked Seth Rollins because a person allegedly impersoning Rollins and catfished the fan.

    Catfishing is when someone pretends to be someone else online. A bad actor will often target an individual and make them believe that they are talking with someoone whose identity they’ve stolen.
