Davey Boy Smith Jr. discusses the Bret Hart incident at the WWE Hall of Fame.
During his WWE Hall of Fame induction speech on Apr. 6, Bret Hart was tackled by Zachary Madsen in a scary scene that thankfully ended with The Hitman being alright. Madsen was immediately jumped by a slew of wrestlers sitting ringside, escorted out of the building, and dealt with by local authorities.
Davey Boy Smith Jr was part of the wrestler's gang who helped the two-time Hall of Fame inductee. Speaking to Hannibal TV, Smith told his side of the incident.
"I would have got there sooner had I been closer to the ring. I was seated right near the entrance. I'm out of touch with things there and I never know what Vince (McMahon) or WWE is planning. I had thought, maybe it was a work. It could have been Enzo that came out and Bret puts him in the Sharpshooter," said Smith Jr. "When this idiot came down, when I saw everybody climb on top of him, I was like, 'Oh, this has got to be a shoot.' I ran down, started throwing guys aside, and tried to punch the kids head in. He was turtled up like a pansy. I may have cut the back of his head. If I had gotten closer to him. I probably would have done something a lot worse. I didn't, which is a good thing because I wouldn't want to get into any trouble."
Many fans saw Dash Wilder land a punch to the face of Madsen as he was being taken away from ringside. What they may have missed was Smith Jr. looking to get in a free shot of his own.
"When he was right near the exit, I went to kick him and Mark Carrano was in the way and I kicked Mark Carrano in the kidney. I apologized to him later and got a drink. I apologized and said, 'I didn't know it was you.' He said, 'If you had known it was me, you would have done it harder probably.'"
