A man charged into the ring and hit WWE legend Bret “The Hitman” Hart while he was delivering his Hall of Fame induction speech Saturday at New York City’s Barclays Center. A 26-year-old man grabbed and punched Hart at least once, according to police.
Police arrested the attacker, punched the 61-year-old Hart before being swarmed by WWE personnel around the ring. Hart did not need medical attention. The suspect is currently being held while charges are being filed. The suspect was identified as Zachary Madsen, and he faces two counts of assault, one count of trespassing and a misdemeanor charge of violation of local law.
This is probably the best angle of the incident involving a fan (and I use that term loosely) attacking Bret Hart. Disgusting. This guy deserved everything he got in the aftermath. Glad to hear Bret was OK and able to resume his speech. #WWEHOFhttps://t.co/6j1Rf8pkMb pic.twitter.com/pXwDdcIo6s
