As seen at Saturday’s WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony, Bret “The Hitman” Hart was attacked while giving his speech when a man jumped the barricade and took him down inside the ring. The man was dragged out of the ring and then arrested by the local authorities.
Bret has now broken his silence and released the statement below via Instagram.
What a wild weekend to say the least! First of all I want to thank WWE for not only the Hall of Fame honor for myself and Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, but for their hospitality with my family and friends. Regarding the ceremony, firstly I want to let everyone know that I am okay and was not injured. If there’s one thing I want everyone to take away from the Hall of Fame ceremony is not so much what happened, but how I wasn’t going to let anything stop me from completing my tribute to my best friend and our team. I’m also glad I got to join @natbynature and @thebethphoenix for their WrestleMania moment. Thank you everyone for your kind thoughts and words.
