We guess Ryan Lochte is hurting for cash after losing some major endorsements.
On Friday, it was revealed Ryan will appear at the Wizard World Comic Con in Richmond, Virginia next month. The bizarre announcement comes on the heels of authorities in Rio officially charging Lochte with filing a false police report on August 18.

For those who have no idea what Wizard World Comic Con is, it brings "pop culture to life" in multiple cities every year. The gathering often hosts a variety of reality stars, former boy banders, and retired celebs.
At the Richmond event, R.L. will appear alongside other
washed up stars like Gene Simmons, AJ Mclean, and a TON of WWE stars. The invited celebs will pose for photo-ops, sign autographs, and mingle with fans.
Here's the kicker to this whole thing — a photo-op with Mr. Lochte costs $50 dollars while his autograph costs NOTHING. The athlete is the only attendee NOT charging for his signature.
To put those facts in perspective, fellow attendee Joey Fatone gets $45 dollars for each fan picture and $30 dollars for every autograph. It's a pretty staggering comparison considering the swimmer once had endorsement deals worth MILLIONS of dollars.
Well, that's what you get for lying and disrespecting an entire country! Sucks to suck!
So, will YOU go see Ryan on September 10?
