During the incident, a parent had to step in and hold Consuelos back before he could make his way towards the 16-year-old.
It is reported, Joaquin lost the match, which caused a visibly upset Consuelos to walk out of the gym for a few hours. He returned and continued watching the all-day tournament with Ripa.
TMZ noted that despite the heated interruption, Joaquin showed good sportsmanship and still shook his opponent's hand at the end of the match. A fan commented on Ripa's picture with their take on the situation and said:
"Tell Mark I support him on his actions at the wrestling match being a parent I would have done the same."
The couple is yet to address the incident, but many of their fans are taking the opportunity to comment on Ripa's picture to express their support for Consuelos after his actions at the wrestling event.
Fans are supporting him for standing up for his son and are praising him for being a good parent because of his protective response at the event.
