During a speech at the induction of his tag-team into the WWE Hall of Fame, Bret 'The Hitman' Hart was tackled by some randomer on stage.
Hart, who is 61 and is a cancer and stroke survivor, was on stage speaking about his former tag-team partner, Jim 'The Anvil' Neidhart, with Neidhart's daughter, Natalie 'Natalya' Neidhart-Wilson, when an unnamed man made it through the ropes of the ring and attempted to tackle him.

The live feed from the event quickly cut to black, however footage from those at the event itself show the man being quickly dragged out of the ring by a number of wrestlers in attendance, including Paul 'Big Show' Wight.

The whole incident was over as quickly as it began, with Hart - proving he's the best there is, the better there was, and the best there ever will be - finished his speech and even made jokes about it afterwards with press.
The man, meanwhile, was charged with assault, was taken into police custody but not before he got the help he needs.
