Fan charges ring to attack Bret Hart during scary moment at WWE Hall of Fame

During the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony at Barclays Center in Brooklyn tonight (April 6), WWE’s latest scary moment of fan occurred during the induction of the Hart Foundation. As Bret Hart was speaking, with Jim Neidhart’s daughter Natalya beside him at the podium, a fan stormed the ring and tried to tackle the 61 year old Hart:

The WWE Network feed quickly went to black. Fans in the arena report security swarmed the stage/ring area (set up in the middle of the arena this year) and subdued the attacker. When the broadcast resumed, numerous WWE wrestlers and employees surrounded Bret and Natty in the ring:

Not only was the Hitman okay, but Bret resumed his speech shortly after the broadcast resumed.

We’ll have more information on a scary moment, but fortunately nothing worse, for this year’s ceremony.

UPDATE: We’ve got fan-shot footage of the entire incident & aftermath, and comments from WWE & Natalya, here.
