Roman Reigns has finally given his reaction to getting attacked by a fan. The event occurred at a WWE house show at Victoria, British Columbia where a fan threw a replica Money in the Bank briefcase which struck Reigns' head. Security got to the scene straight away, removing the culprit from the arena, who is now banned from watching WWE live ever again.
Reigns gave his reaction to the incident in an interview with the Miami Herald:
“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. Aww, you’re about to get your [butt] whooped,’ but then I looked down, and I could see the briefcase. So then I’m trying to piece this thing together.
“If you see the video, you see me stand up to where I kind of got a little bit hot. Once I was able to process the situation in a matter of seconds, I knew what needed to be done, and our security team took care of it.”
“It was just a bad choice by a 31-year-old man, throwing briefcases at entertainers while they’re busting their [butt] for you. Everybody was on top of it. 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.
“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.”
