A WWE live event got a little out of hand over the weekend when Roman Reigns was struck by a replica Money in the Bank briefcase thrown from the crowd.

The Superstar was OK and recovered to complete his match against Bray Wyatt, but the 'fan' responsible for flooring Reigns isn't looking forward to such a bright future.


As reported by CTVNews.com, the fan was arrested for his actions and, although no charges were ultimately brought against him, he is now facing up to a lifetime ban from all future WWE events.

The unnamed 31-year-old was quickly dealt with by security at the event with the referee in charge of the Reigns-Wyatt match even going over to help apprehend him, as shown by this video.

The fan was saved from potentially serious legal repercussions largely because Roman Reigns avoided serious injury, but he surely had to expect some serious punishment to be heading his way from the WWE after effectively assaulting one of their main roster stars.

Crowd involvement

Another interesting development alongside the fact that the individual will not be able to attend any event moving forward, is the fan's interpretation of events.

According to WrestlingInc, the fan is claiming that he only threw the MITB briefcase at Reigns after being encouraged by fellow members of the crowd.

This was not immediately obvious in the aftermath of the incident that was caught on camera - the video footage instead showing fans booing the man and urging for him to be kicked out.
