A male fan tried to have the full World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) live event experience in Saturday (Sunday Manila time) at Victoria, British Columbia in Canada and paid for it dearly.

The 31-year-old wrestling fan was arrested and was banned from future WWE events after tossing a replica “Money In The Bank” briefcase to the ring which hit star Roman Reigns in the back of the head.

In a report of CTV News, Victoria police spokesman Sgt. Bryan Edwards said that the fan snuck the briefcase to the arena which caught the attention of the crowd. The audience then chanted for the man to throw the briefcase to the ring, to which the fan obliged.

The fan has apologized since for the incident, but the WWE is firm on its sanction to ban him from attending shows in the future.
