As the story goes Pillman manages to work his way out of WCW and walks into ECW and cuts a promo on Bischoff. After the interview he leaves the ring and there is a fan at ringside the guy says something to Pillman he pulls him over the guard rail kicks the shit out of him and then gets him in the ring continuing to beat the snot out of the guy until security takes Pillman away. With wrestling being the way it is, I curious was the guy Pillman "beat up" an actual fan? Or just someone from maybe an indy fed that was put there to put Pillman over? I've understood most of what happened at that event just not the finish to the infamous Pillman promo. Though if he was a plant Harley Race was wrong about the grannies.
