The WWE Network’s live feed went dark after Bret “The Hitman” Hart was attacked by a member of the crowd during his WWE Hall of Fame acceptance speech Saturday night, but footage is emerging showing the aftermath of the wild incident at the Barclays Center in New York.
The event was part of the weekend surrounding Sunday’s Wrestlemania 35. Hart was inducted into the organization’s Hall of Fame along with his original Hart Foundation tag-team partner Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart. Neidhart, who died last year, was repped by his daughter Natalya.
Bret and Natalya were at the podium inside the wrestling ring when the attacker, Zachary Madsen, jumped into the ring and tackled Hart to the ground. In an arena full of pro wrestlers, it wasn’t long before Madsen was subdued.

Bret Hart and a security guard suffered minor injuries, though Hart finished his speech. Both were treated at a local hospital and released, according to the New York Times.
One of the wrestlers in the crowd who held down Madsen was Hart’s nephew, Davey Boy Smith.
Madsen, 26, was arrested and on charges of assault and criminal trespass. He is being held on $1,500 bail.
