Stewards had to separate rival fans towards the end of the Wildcats' 24-14 win over the Vikings at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium.
A spokesman for the Rugby Football League said the governing body will first study reports from the match commissioner and Wakefield's ground safety officer before deciding what action to take.
The Wildcats have a suspended £1,000 fine hanging over them following disturbances during last season's derby with Castleford.
Wakefield coach Richard Agar said: "It's not often you see it. I can't comment on the incident because I was watching the game.
"But I hope some action is taken against the perpetrators. It's ugly and it's not something any genuine rugby league person wants to see."
Wakefield have now released the following statement in the wake of Monday's unsavoury scenes.
"The club will be carrying out a full and thorough investigation into the crowd disturbance during last night's match against Widnes Vikings," read a statement on the club's official website.
"The club takes a zero tolerance approach to such incidents and prides itself on providing a safe and enjoyable environment in which all supporters can enjoy the game.
"As such, the club will not hesitate to take appropriate action if required once the investigation has been concluded.
"The club will make no further comment until the investigation is concluded."
