Not only is the guy out on bond but his justification was "I felt it was the right time to punch Bret”??

Guy should have been roughed up some more.

Anyone remember how much CM Punk was sued for when this happened?

He wasn't.
It wouldn't surprise me if that fan got some kind of compensation from WWE in order to avoid a lawsuit in exchange for signing an NDA. Punk punched the wrong person in retaliation for being pushed from behind, which isn't clear in that footage.

These types of incidents are becoming me mentally fatiguing to me. Even going through the thread is like trudging through treacle. Ultimately I just wish people were better.

Bret Hart’s Attacker Claims ‘It Was The Right Moment’ To Cops
Zachary Maden, the unhinged fan who charged at WWE legend Bret Hart during this year’s Hall of Fame ceremony, was arraigned in court yesterday. Prosecutors claimed that he told police after the incident that he “felt like it was the right moment” to rush into the ring and tackle the cancer survivor in front of at least 100 wrestlers. The Brooklyn judge ordered police to hold Zachary on $1,500 bond after charging him with assault and criminal trespassing.

Here's another ass whupping to show what can happen if you're stupid enough to jump into the ring:

That's great! Triple H starts beating him and then I expected the ref to try to pull Triple H off to separate them, but instead, he starts beating on the guy as well.

Guy had a protection order against him from someone else, and is an incel who kept tweet raging about the main eventers of Wrestlemania being women.

So not a fan that decided to do stupid shit, it was someone that planned an attack and carried it out.
So an even bigger piece of shit than even the people who knew he was a piece of shit and were telling people about it knew?

Wooo weee
