Bret Hart Breaks Silence on WWE Hall of Fame Attack

This past weekend was the biggest professional wrestling event of the year, with WrestleMania 35 taking over the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, NY for a weekend-long celebration of the WWE and eagerly anticipated matches.

However, one completely unscripted surprise occurred the evening before, as Bret Hart and the Hart Foundation were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. During the induction ceremony, an overzealous fan entered the ring and attacked Hart before being subdued and turned over to the authorities. In a post on his Instagram account, Hart addressed the attack for the first time publicly since the incident.

Assuring his fans he was not injured in the attack, Hart thanked WWE for the induction and the opportunity to pay tribute to his late friend Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart and his team.

Following the attack, WWE had issued an official statement in response to the incident, clarifying what exactly occurred and confirming the assailant now faces criminal charges for his actions. The rest of the event went relatively without a hitch, with Hart resuming his speech after his attacker was taken into custody.
