Dramatic scenes as fan attacks Roman Reigns at live event

Published 10 Comments

Roman Reigns is used to taking punishment from fellow stars of the WWE roster but reports today revealed he was the victim of an assault by a fan at a recent live event.

Fan attack

According to NoDq.com, Reigns was struck on the back of the head by a replica Money in the Bank briefcase thrown from the crowd at a house show on Saturday night.

The former Shield member has struggled at times recently to win over the WWE Universe but this dramatic event was a step too far for the rest in attendance in Victoria, British Columbia who urged security to "kick out" the man who threw the briefcase.

Although Reigns managed to continue his match vs Bray Wyatt and collect the W, he spent several minutes in the corner recovering from the blow to the head.

The aftermath of the assault was captured on video and it shows WWE security stepping in and physically restraining the fan who was quickly kicked out of the event.

As alluded to above, Reigns continues to walk the tight rope between popular star and criticized wrestler. This incident is a further sign this remains the case but, although the Superstar was said to be frustrated at the attack, he should take solace in the fact the the rest of the crowd were quick to show him support.

Part of the trade

WWE live events, unlike RAW and SmackDown, often see fans closer to the action and they can sometimes take advantage of being out of the limelight of TV. 

The organization's history is littered with similar fan interventions.
