Passions run hot and cold on his popular CW series Riverdale, but Mark Consuelos was decidedly hot-headed during his son’s recent high school wrestling match.
The 48-year-old actor rushed onto the wrestling mat during a particularly fierce match involving his 16-year-old son Joaquin, according to video posted by TMZ.
Mark’s wife Kelly Ripa, 49, was also reportedly at the sporting event.

The video shows Joaquin at the start of a match with another high schooler during a tournament in Long Island, New York.
The opposing wrestler slaps at Joaquin’s head multiple times.
As the slaps are delivered, multiple unidentified people can be heard shouting in the audience.
On man shouts, ‘What the f***?’ and a woman can be heard saying, ‘What are you doing?’
As the referee blows his whistle and attempts to push them apart, the opposing wrestler manages to rip off Joaquin’s headgear.

That’s when Mark suddenly appears on the mat.
It’s not clear what he’s saying, but he walks right up to the small ring and seems to be speaking directly to the other wrestler.
As the boy moves away, Mark follows him, and a wrestling coach or staff member steps in and briskly pushing him back and out of the ring before he gets too close to the boy.
It’s unclear what connection the person recording the video has to either wrestler, but he definitely isn’t happy with Mark getting so fired up.
‘Hey, be cool, it’s a f***ing high school wrestling match!’ he says.

Joaquin and the other wrestler were able to keep things professional and even continued the match and shook hands afterward.
But the other boy ultimately won the bout, which reportedly made the Riverdale star upset enough that he had to leave for multiple hours to calm himself down.
So far, Mark has yet to comment on the incident.
The actor is definitely a fan of physical fitness, based on a video his co-star KJ Apa shared earlier this year of his rock-hard abs.

The former soap opera star has been married to Kelly since 1996.
The two met the year before on the set of All My Children, which both starred on.
In addition to their youngest son, Joaquin, the couple also have a daughter, Lola, 18, and an older son, Michael, 22.
Earlier this week, Kelly gushed about her daughter’s singing voice in the comments of one of her Instagram posts.
Their son Michael ventured into the world of acting last year when he appeared as a younger version of Mark’s character Hiram Lodge in a flashback scene, though it’s not clear if the lookalike is planning to do more acting.
