Bret Hart recalls WWE Hall of Fame attack

Bret Hart has won titles in five decades, from 1970 to 2010, with a total of thirty-two reigns throughout his career and in particular seventeen between WWF/WWE and WCW. He is a seven-time world champion, having won the WWF Championship five times and the WCW World Heavyweight Championship twice.

He was WWF Champion more than any other wrestler during the 1990s, with a total of 654 days as a champion, and was the first WCW World Heavyweight Champion to be born outside the United States. He also holds the record of reigns as the WCW/WWE United States Champion and was the second WWF Triple Crown Champion and the fifth (with Goldberg) WCW Triple Crown Champion, becoming the first wrestler to obtain such recognition in both the WWF and the WCW.

He was also the winner of the Royal Rumble in 1994 (ex aequo with Lex Luger) and the only two-time WWE King of the Ring in history, after winning the tournament in 1991 and 1993 (which by the way was the first edition transmitted in pay-per-view).

His score at WrestleMania is thirteen games: 8 wins and 5 defeats (1986 - 2010). Speaking on his Confessions Of The Hitman series, Hart discussed the infamous attack on him by an attendee at the 2019 WWE Hall Of Fame induction ceremony.

Bret Hart on WWE Hall of Fame attack

“Well, a lot of people, because wrestling is so bizarre, I guess, they just assumed it was part of the show. So they had this guy, he ran all the way down in front of everybody, and jumped over the [railing] like in the [Scotiabank] Saddledome, like running all the way down from the top, and jumping onto the ice.

Everybody just watched like, ‘Oh, this must be one of the wrestlers.’ He was an ex UFC guy apparently or an ex martial arts guy of some kind, but I think he had some mental problems or something. But he definitely didn’t come in to play around" - Bret Hart said.

“I didn’t see him till the very last second. I could remember talking and I could feel, like, I thought it was a fight in the first row, is what I thought it was. I remember thinking that I’m talking, so I can’t look and go [looks over his shoulder] right in the middle.

I want to look, but I couldn’t look. And I think just when I started to see what it was, he was already right there and grabbed me" - he added.
