Bret Hart’s Attacker Out On Bond, Releases First Statement On Why He Attacked Hart
One of the big stories from this weekend is that someone at the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony rushed the stage and attacked Bret Hart, before he was subdued by several of the wrestlers including Dash Wilder who punched the man in the face. It was later revealed that he was amateur MMA fighter Zachary Madsen after he was arrested and charged with two counts of third degree assault and one count of disorderly conduct. Now 1011 Now in Nebraska reports that Madsen has been released from jail on bond after pleading not guilty to all charges. He is scheduled to be back in court in Lincoln on Wednesday.
Luckily, Bret only suffered minor injuries after the attack and was able to continue his speech like it never happened. He even made an appearance at WrestleMania last night.
As for why Madsen decided to attack a stroke survivor, he told ABC News that he “just felt like it was the right moment.”
