Tonight a ‘fan’ rushed the ring and attacked Bret Hart as he and Natalya were accepting the Hart Foundation’s induction into the WWE Hall Of Fame. No more than an hour later, at Madison Square Garden, former WWE tag team Enzo and Big Cass jumped the barricade and seemingly invaded the ROH/NJPW G1 Supercard.

However, unlike the Bret Hart incident, Voices of Wrestling are reporting that the former NXT star’s invasion of the show is “100% a work”.
Just got a text. 100% work. Was told the upper level office pushed for it despite booking team being largely against it. https://t.co/XfPUueJgpt

Speculation about the invasion being a work begun once fans noticed how security did very little when these two ‘intruders’ rushed the ring. Bully Ray took it to Enzo and security stood back. Rumours even have been circulating that Big Cass was hiding underneath the ring.
Ok, @real1 and Big Cass just invaded the wrong show. They tried to keep the off the broadcast but they’re getting tons of internet time. But seriously, they got their asses whooped when they were being kept off screen. #G1Supercard pic.twitter.com/lrG0QVTDWC

As far as works go, this was fantastically executed, so props to all involved.
