Maria Menounos Speaks Out About Bret Hart Fan Attack

In an interview with Busted Open Radio, Maria Menounos commented on Bret Hart being attacked by a fan at the 2019 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony:

“You don’t understand how angry I was. It’s so funny that you see it and you knew what my heart was saying. I was legit looking for a clean shot and I couldn’t get a clean shot of the guy. Why did I think that I needed to go in there when we had all these beasts in there? But I’m like, you just took down someone who had cancer, who had a stroke, you took down my friend, and now my husband was in the middle, and I just couldn’t control myself so when it first happened, you never know what’s real, what’s not right? Obviously you’re at [the] Hall Of Fame and you don’t expect that happen.” She continued, “So, it took a second — Travis Browne, Ronda Rousey’s husband was literally the first in the ring. He speared the guy just as he was taking Bret down and then my husband was just watching the pounding go on. I went over to Stephanie McMahon — she’s like, ‘No, it’s real. Stay back’, and then I see Kevin [Undergaro/Maria’s husband] pulling him out of the ring and I’m like, ‘Oh hell no’. Not to disrespect Stephanie of course because I love Stephanie but I was like, ‘I’m not gonna let Kevin just be in there’. So I race in and he’s on the ground and I’m just waiting for the clear shot. Meanwhile, my husband with the good intentions is, ‘I have to get this guy out of here before they kill him’. I’m like, ‘No, I need to contribute one hit’.”
