I’ve done my best to not spoil anything that happened at WrestleMania for those who didn’t see the pay per view. If you want a recap of WreslteMania and all it’s happenings, check out Mitchell’s WrestleMania 35 Report HERE.
The Latest On Bret Hart
As many of you saw, Bret Hart was attacked by a fan, Zachary Madsen, during the hall of fame ceremony Saturday evening. Consider this your one stop post for all things that happened during and after the incident.
Here is a video of the attack, and subsequent KO punch by Dash Wilder:
WWE’s statement on the attack:
“An over-exuberant fan surpassed our security at ringside and made his way briefly into the ring. The individual has been turned over to the proper authorities.”
Since the attack, many news outlets have reported that the attacker has stalked wrestlers previously, and has posted cryptic Tweets on his Twitter account. The New York Post has an article discussing previous stalking charges against Madsen. After his speech last night, Hart was taken to a local hospital due to hip discomfort.
Hart appears to be ok, as indicated by a Tweet from the Revival backstage before WrestleMania:

I don’t know what I could say that fans and media haven’t already said. But, what an idiot. I have no idea what he was thinking. One has to wonder if this isn’t the last we have seen of the hall of fame stage change.
Matt Taven Wins ROH World Championship
WrestleMania wasn’t the only show this weekend as the NJPW/ROH G1 Supercard was at Madison Square Garden Saturday night. The ROH World Championship was defended in a three-way ladder match between champion Jay Lethal and challengers Marty Scrull and Matt Taven. Taven would walk away from the match as ROH Champion.
What a match! Many fans were discussing they Johnny Gargano and Adam Cole match from Takeover as a match of the year candidate, but i think you also have to consider this match as one as well.
Enzo and Cass To ROH?
Speaking of the G1 Supercard and people jumping guardrails, Enzo and Cass made their presence felt at the joint ROH/NJPW show as they jumped the guardrail and attacked the Briscoes.

Many fans were posting Saturday night that this appeared to be a shoot, however it looks like Cass and Enzo are on their way to ROH. But what a way to make your entrance into a promotion.
