Juice Robinson's Will Smith Moment at NJPW Capital Collision

Saturday night, I attended New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Capitol Collision in Washington, DC.
Fred Rosser’s video package played on the screen and then he entered the arena. As he stood on the stage before he entered the ring, he was attacked by Juice Robinson and the action went around ringside and into the ring as he beat Rosser with a chair and also a fistful of coins.
Here’s what Wrestling Observer had to say about the incident with some context that I missed:
As Rosser made his way to the ring, it was revealed he left a reserved seat for Robinson's wife, Toni Storm.
Robinson jumped Rosser before the match could begin. Robinson dropped Rosser with a piledriver on the ramp and a suplex on the floor. The referee tried scolding Robinson only to also be laid out with a forearm.
Once Robinson brought the action to the ring, he grabbed the "Toni Storm" labeled chair, which he used to beat down Rosser. One last loaded punch to Rosser marked the end of the beatdown.
After destroying Rosser, Robinson grabbed a microphone. Robinson told Rosser to, "Keep my wife's name out of your f*cking mouth", and left.
I will have more on Capital Collision later.
