Roman Reigns commented about the incident from over the weekend where a fan threw a Money In The Bank replica briefcase and hit him in the head during the non-televised in Victoria, BC.
“I was confused at first. I thought Bray hit me in the head with the kendo stick. So immediately I was like, ‘Aww man. You’re about to get it, brother,’” Reigns told the Miami Herald. He then realized that it wasn’t Bray who hit him after he saw the briefcase in the ring.
Reigns had good stuff to say about the WWE security personnel who immediately pin pointed the person who threw the briefcase. “He was escorted out, briefly after, and luckily for me, [the briefcase] was plastic, so it didn’t hurt, but it’s scary. What if it was something that could have hurt me. Hit me in the eye,” Reigns said, adding that the 31 year old fan just made a bad choice.
“I’m a character and a sports entertainer and a wrestler, but I’m also a father and a husband and a provider. So for me that’s scary, because I’m just going out there to put on a good show and provide for my family and take care of my future, and if somebody takes that away from me… For what? For 10 seconds of Internet fame. That’s tough to deal with. That’s hard to process,” Reigns concluded.
The fan who threw the briefcase in the ring was banned from all future WWE shows although the company did not press charges against him.
