• Former WWE Wrestler Says He Accidentally Hit The Wrong Person During Bret Hart Incident At WWE Hall Of Fame 2019
During a recent interview with The Hannibal TV, former WWE wrestler David Hart Smith (son of the late “British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith) talked about the Bret Hart incident during the WWE Hall of Fame 2019 ceremony.
Smith revealed that he accidentally hit WWE Senior Director of Talent Relations Mark Carrano while trying to hit Bret Hart’s attacker:
“So I was punching [the attacker] pretty hard. I think I might have cut the back of his head. I was trying to punch him pretty hard. If I would have gotten closer to him I would have probably done something a lot worse to him, ya know? I didn’t which is a good thing because I wouldn’t want to get in any trouble with that. I could have done something pretty nasty to him.
It was funny, you couldn’t see it, but when we were all by the exit area we were all crowded around and 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 I got him a drink and said ‘I’m sorry about that.’ I said: ‘I didn’t know it was you.’ He said, ‘yeah, if you would have known it was me you would have done it harder probably’ and I started laughing.”
