Members of the Hart family took to Twitter to address the unfortunate incident from yesterday at the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony after Bret was attacked by a fan from behind while he was giving his speech.
Natalya, who took the bump with Bret after the attacker dragged both of them, wrote, “I’m so proud of my uncle @BretHart tonight during our HOF ceremony. Bret is a cancer survivor, a stroke survivor and one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. He didn’t deserve to be attacked or have his moment or my dad’s diminished. We got it back on track. Thank you, guys.”
Several of Nattie’s friends came to the rescue, including Ronda Rousey and Beth Phoenix, who helped calm down the situation.
Georgia Smith, the daughter of The British Bulldog, also tweeted, “Everyone is ok. But f*ck that asshole!!!! And thank you to my brother for running in and knocking that prick out. Cannot believe that happened.”
Her brother, Harry Smith, better known as Davey Boy Smith Jr, unloaded on the individual while he was on the ground. “Glad I was able to help my Uncle @BretHart tonight at the WWE Hall of Fame,” he wrote. “That ‘fan’ was lucky I was being held back. As Rickson Gracie said ‘If we fight for money, I’ll stop hitting you when you ask me to. If we fight for honor, I’ll stop hitting you when I feel like it.'”
Bret Hart has not publicly commented about what happened yet.
