WWE legend Bret Hart attacked by fan who ran into ring during Hall Of Fame Speech
WWE legend Bret Hart was tackled to the ground by a fan while giving a speech at his Hall of Fame induction in a shocking incident the night before Wrestlemania 35.
The Hitman, 61, had been inducted as one part of ‘The Hart Foundation’, the tag team he competed in alongside his late friend, Jim ‘The Anvil’ Neidhart, who passed away last year.
He was accompanied by Neidhart’s daughter, Natalya, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
As the former five-time heavyweight champion addressed those in attendance, he was rugby tackled to the ground by a man who had hopped the barricade, later identified as 26-year-old Zachary Madsen.
Madsen was quickly subdued by numerous wrestlers, as well as UFC heavyweight and Ronda Rousey’s husband, Travis Browne.
While Madsen was being led out of the arena, he was knocked out by Dash Wilder, one half of the RAW tag team champions, who clearly took exception to seeing such a moment ruined.

“An over-exuberant fan surpassed our security at ringside and made his way briefly into the ring,” a statement from WWE read. “The individual has been turned over to the proper authorities.”
It is now being reported by the LA Times that Madsen ‘has been charged with two counts of assault in the third degree and disorderly conduct’.
Despite being visibly shaken, Hart was able to return to his feet and continue with the remainder of his speech.
