WWE issued the following statement on Saturday evening to Wrestleview.com regarding the incident at the Hall of Fame where a fan attacked Bret Hart:
“An over-exuberant fan surpassed our security at ringside and made his way briefly into the ring. The individual has been turned over to the proper authorities.”
The fan, who remains unidentified as of this evening, was removed from the ring by both wrestlers and WWE staff immediately after the incident took place.
If you missed it, our earlier report highlighted the attack by the fan as Bret Hart was giving his Hall of Fame speech for the induction of the Hart Foundation.
Video also started trending on Twitter of RAW Tag Team Champion Dash Wilder of The Revival punching the fan as he was being taken away backstage.
