The video posted on Saturday shows Mark interrupting the match after things get heated between his youngest child, Joaquin, and his opponent. The teenagers appear to be fiercely slapping each other when Mark's son drops to the mat and his opponent rips off his headgear.
It is at that moment that the actor loses his cool, goes on to the mat and appears to approach his son's opponent. Concerned parents can be heard yelling at him to get off the mat, and another adult comes to push him back towards the stands.
“What are you crazy or what?” an observer can be heading saying. “Be cool, it’s a f**king high school wrestling match.”

The two boys later shook hands and carried on with the match, which, according to TMZ, Joaquin's opponent ended up winning. TMZ also reports that TV host Kelly Ripa, “kept her cool” in the stands.

"I was putting it out there for [Mark] last night," she joked, "And [he] was like 'It's all right, let's be grateful for what we have."
