WrestleMania 35 was this weekend and while it was highlighted by the first ever all-female main event, there were some other big events that happened over the weekend as well. Among those events were the WWE Hall Of Fame induction speeches. This year, Bret “The Hitman” Hart was set to deliver a speech of his own. In the middle of his induction, Hart was tackled by a crazed fan who rushed into the ring. Ronda Rousey’s husband Travis Browne was able to tackle the man and pummel him a bit before cops arrested him.
The man who was arrested, Zachary Madsen, said he did it because it seemed like the right thing to do, according to TMZ.
Fans were worried about Hart’s well being, although the wrestling legend took to Instagram to deliver some encouraging news.
“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,” Hart wrote. “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.”
Madsen has been charged with criminal trespassing and assault. He was also held on $1500 bond.
We’re sure he won’t be doing that again.
