Two-time WWE Hall of Famer Bret “Hitman” Hart has issued a status update following his attack by an “over-exuberant fan” at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony on Saturday.
Hart stated on his Instagram account that he is okay and was not “going to let anything stop me from completing my tribute to my best friend and our team”.
It should be noted that Hart was admitted to a Brooklyn hospital for hip discomfort following the attack on Saturday, but he was well enough to walk his niece Natalya and her partner Beth Phoenix out to the stage at WrestleMania 35 on Sunday night.

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. 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. I’m also glad I got to join @natbynature and @thebethphoenix for their WrestleMania moment. Thank you everyone for your kind thoughts and words.
