Hart was making a speech alongside WWE star Natalya as part of the induction for The Hart Foundation (Hart and Jim Neidhart) The fan crashed the ring and tried to tackle Hart. This led to several WWE stars going after the fan. Eventually, the man was taken out of the arena and later charged by police.

Wheeler was one of the stars who jumped in to take the fan away as he has a lot of respect for Hart, who has spoken highly of FTR in the past.

“Watching it happen I was like, it seemed like something that would be a work, but there’s no way that it is. And then you see everyone start to scramble. This is not good. I never go into much detail on this just because I don’t want to worry about it. I’ve said this before on [Chris] Jericho’s podcast, if you watch the incident back, there was no security there, no police there. Just all the boys and his hands were free and he kept threatening everybody. So ‘don’t wait to find out’ is my motto.

It’s kinda what I mean by like, his hands weren’t restrained, we have him by the jacket, but nobody has his hands and he keeps not cooperating and he keeps saying some wild s**t. I’m not just gonna stand around and see what happens. I’m going to make sure we get this the easiest way. So say whatever, but that guy was a douchebag like you said and should’ve never been in that position. I would always do the same thing again if it came down to it again.”
