Bret Hart statement

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.
