To state that Bret Hart is a legend is to simply go in circles. One of the greatest ambassadors of WWE, Bret ‘The Hitman’ Heart has fought all kinds of battles – on the wrestling mat and off it. And nothing has not generated buzz.
Bret Hart was at his peak came when WWF was going through its most tumultuous period. Apparently, they had the biggest baby-face in Hitman but not many heels for him to dance with in the ring. And yet, the pull he had made sure the fans poured in massive numbers.
Talking of fans, here are some bona fide reasons for you to be a Bret Hart fan (if you aren’t one already)
10- Successfully breaking into singles after an established stint at Tag Team championships.
#9-Winning King of the Ring in 1993 by hard-fought matches, and then walking into Hulk Hogan’s dressing room and telling him to go f’ himself!
#8-For beating pretty boy Shawn Michaels left, right and centre.
#7-For putting over his brother Owen and forever erasing the unjust label of “jobber” off him forever.
#6-For offering to pay for any possible surgery that would help The Dynamite Kid walk again.
#5- For coming back to WWF in October 1996 instead of going to WCW despite having been offered an astronomical sum of money.
#4-He was pushed aside time and time again in favor of the likes of Hulk Hogan, Lex Luger, Diesel and Shawn Michaels, yet continued to kick ass and take names inside that ring.
#3-For refusing to put over Shawn Michaels at Survivor Series 1997 after HBK had refused to job to the entire locker room, also for showing some pride and knocking Vince out in the dressing room for what he did. Personally, i think it would have been more fun to knock out Shawn.
#2-For having the courage to return to the WWF in 2010 and bury the hatchet with Shawn Michaels and Vince McMahon. When you carry your emotions in a backpack over your shoulder for as long as Bret did, the only one who suffers is you.
And the #1 reason to respect Bret Hart is….He’s The Best there is….The Best there was….and the Best there ever will be! Duh!
