On his “Confessions of the Hitman” podcast, Bret Hart has opened up about a stalker incident, which would eventually lead to a knife attack on policemen.
Hart, who incidentally was attacked by a rogue fan at least year’s Hall of Fame ceremony, recalls the situation occurring after he swapped WWE for WCW:
“Throughout my career, I had at least three, maybe four, very dangerous and serious stalkers.
“Females, all females, always situations where I made the mistake of being too nice, signing pictures.
“Being too nice brought out some kind of attachment that they couldn’t let go of.
“There was one girl near the end of my career when I had the concussion injury, she was totally nuts and psychotic.
“And she made me death threats for quite a few weeks, and [was] telling me she’s going to kill me and stuff. And I didn’t know who she was or what she looked like.”
“I just kept getting these voicemails on my machine. In her mind, I guess she thought I was seeing her or I promised I’d see her after my match.
“I never talked to her or that kind of thing. She had all these delusional thoughts about me and her.
“And, of course, I would stand her up. I guess because I wouldn’t show up at these things. It was probably Owen [Hart] calling her or something!
“I found that she was becoming more of a problem when I got concussed.
“I got hurt, and I remember getting to my [hotel] room. I had a voicemail from her. She called herself ‘The Nasty Girl’.
“That was sort of her name or her handle. And she was totally crazy.”
The 63-year-old reveals that the gravity of the situation meant he finally got the police involved, but that is when things escalated quickly:
“It was pretty serious stuff and I remember WCW did nothing, like zero.
“And I remember, I said to the girl at the counter, I said, ‘have you ever seen a real stalker?’
“She goes, ‘no, I haven’t.’ I said, ‘there’s one right across the street right now looking at me’, and she looked back and she saw her peek out from behind the pillar.
“And she goes, ‘you’re not kidding, are you?’ I said, ‘I’m not kidding.’
“So she goes, ‘do you want me to call the police?’ And I said, ‘please call the police. Please.’
“This is not kidding around stuff. This is really serious.”
“So she called the police and three policemen came up to me. They were fans or friendly to me.
“They said, ‘what’s going on?’ I said, ‘there’s a girl’. And I remember she did the same thing, peeked from behind the pillar, and they saw her and they go, ‘okay, we see her.’
“And I said, ‘she’s a nut. She’s following me around and she [has] made a lot of threats to me.’ I told them what happened.
“They said, ‘we’ll go and talk to her’ because I wasn’t 100% sure it was the right girl.
“Two cops walked me to my car and one cop said he’s going to go over and check her out and investigate, get her ID, and get her story. And so I left.
“They walked me to my car, I drove to my hotel. Maybe about 10 minutes after I got to my room, they called me from the lobby and told me that the girl tried to attack the policeman [with a knife] who walked over, and they wanted me to come and fill out a statement in support of the policeman.
“I would never have to come back to court, which I didn’t have to. This would all be backup support evidence for the [officer]. So, they arrested her and took her to jail.”
