WWE Champion Kofi Kingston and WWE SmackDown and Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch gave their take on the man who decided to attack WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York over WrestleMania weekend.
Hart was making a speech alongside WWE star Natalya as part of the induction for The Hart Foundation (Hart and Jim Neidhart) at this year’s Hall of Fame ceremony that aired on the WWE Network. 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. While making an appearance on WFAN, the two WWE stars talked about the incident.
Kingston: “Our fans are very passionate, to say the least. It’s one of those things where you just never know. A lot of people didn’t know what was going on until it was actually happening. We did what we had to do and got in there.”
Lynch: “I trust our team and you can see how quickly the people reacted. In the wrestling industry, we’re used to seeing. For some people, it would almost be jarring. But the likes of Kofi were in there like a shot. The situation was taken care of. We have some quick thinkers and great security, so we’re never really worried about it.”
