Bret Hart attacker Zach Madsen has previous stalking arrest

Bret Hart fan

The man who attacked Bret Hart during the WWE Hall of Fame event in Brooklyn on Saturday night has been identified, and he is no stranger to legal trouble.

Zachary Madsen, 26, of Lincoln, Neb., bypassed security and tackled Hart inside the ring at the Barclays Center. Kevin Cole of the Omaha World-Herald reviewed court records and learned that Madsen is awaiting trial for a previous incident in which he violated a protective order. Madsen, an aspiring mixed martial arts fighter, was accused of stalking MMA fighter Haris Talundzic. Talundzic said he had trained at a gym in Lincoln with Madsen but stopped because he was concerned about Madsen’s mental health.

Prior to Saturday night’s event, Madsen sent numerous tweets about the WWE. Some were critical Vince McMahon, while another thanked the WWE founder.

Madsen was immediately pummeled by several people after he tackled Hart. If you saw some of the shots that were delivered to Madsen after he entered the ring, it’s no surprise he ended up with so many injuries. Madsen is reportedly facing several charges from the incident.
