• Dash Wilder Reveals Vince McMahon’s Reaction When He Punched Bret Hart’s Attacker

At the WWE Hall of Fame 2019 ceremony, Bret Hart got attacked during his speech and that led to several wrestlers entering the ring to take down the attacker and take him out of the arena.

While the attacker was getting taken out of the arena, Dash Wilder of The Revival (now known as Cash Wheeler of FTR in AEW) punched him.

You can watch it below:

During a recent edition of Jim Cornette’s podcast, Wilder revealed Vince McMahon’s reaction to this incident:

“I did have a meeting with Vince McMahon and I did have to show him the video from multiple angles so he could see that the guy wasn’t restrained. There were no cuffs, no cops, no security, just the boys, and a mentally unstable guy whose hands are not being restrained at all.

And as soon as he saw the video and I told him kind of like what the guy had been saying, everything changed. He wasn’t mad to begin with, he was just worried.

But once he saw the video, once he saw the guy was not restrained, he was still a threat and that was the case, he was like, ‘that’s completely justified’.”
