The WWE Hall of Fame ceremony is a pretty tame affair during WrestleMania weekend, but tonight’s ceremony took a turn when Bret Hart was tackled by a fan during the show.

Hart was giving his acceptance speech after being inducted for the second time into the WWE Hall of Fame as a member of the Hart Foundation tag team. The video below shows a fan rushing the ring and tackling Hart along with WWE Superstar Natalya before a number of current WWE Superstars entered the ring.

As expected, many fans – and some wrestlers – were furious about this attack and took to Twitter to express their outrage. (Some NSFW language ahead.)
