WWE was in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada for a house show last night and during the course of the evening a fan used a replica Money in the Bank briefcase to assault Roman Reigns. According to reports from the show, the fan threw the briefcase in the ring and struck Reigns in the back of the head.
He was able to finish his match with Bray Wyatt but the action was briefly stopped to give him some time to recover.
The fan who threw the briefcase was removed by security and police were called over the incident.

Update: Our friend Jessa was at the show and reported back:
@cagesideseats this was so frustrating. Security went for the guy right away, and the arena erupted in chants of "thrown him out".— Jessa (@jessa_vi) August 9, 2015
@cagesideseats Roman was obvious stunned, and after his victory he looked beat and didn't stay very long to do high fives :(— Jessa (@jessa_vi) August 9, 2015
@cagesideseats he took a photo with a cute grandma in the corner by the entrance, but didn't visit w fans much more than that post match— Jessa (@jessa_vi) August 9, 2015

@cagesideseats no, he was in the ring with his back to that corner. It looked like it hit him right in the back of his head.— Jessa (@jessa_vi) August 9, 2015
