Multiple angles of the incident which interrupted Bret Hart’s speech at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony at Barclays Center in Brooklyn tonight (April 6) are now available online, and show multiple wrestlers & others in attendance getting involved to protect Hart & Natalya, and dish out some payback to the audience member who charged the ring.
Noteworthy names who can be seen as part of the fray are Hart’s nephew & Natalya’s cousin Davey Boy Smith Jr. and Ronda Rousey’s husband & retired UFC fighter Travis Browne, who act quickly to handle the attacker. All three members of The New Day are in the ring and appear to be covering Natty. And The Revival’s Dash Wilder can be seen getting one last shot in on the “fan” as he’s being carried off.

As the ceremony continued, WWE issued the following statement:
“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.”
Natalya also tweeted a comment:
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— Nattie (@NatbyNature) April 7, 2019
Again, Hart and Natalya were both unharmed and the ceremony continued as planned.
