Bret Hart’s wrestling bio

Bret Hart

Hello again wrestling fans, as I promised, here is Bret Hart’s wrestling bio.

The Hart Foundation
Bret Hart was born into the most famous family in Pro-wrestling history, the Hart’s.  He was trained in the Hart family dungeon by his promoter and father, Stu Hart, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Bret Hart joined his father’s wrestling promotion named Stampede Wrestling. He won numerous titles while in the promotion. The WWF (WWE) purchased Stampede Wrestling, in the 80’s from Stu Hart. Bret joined his brother in law Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart and formed The Hart Foundation, which are consider one of the best tag teams in wrestling history. They held the WWE tag team title only twice, but their title reign didn’t make them great.  The wrestling feuds between, The British Bulldogs, Legion of Doom (Road Warriors), Demolition, The Rockers, and The Nasty Boys, made them tag team icons.

Bret also made his mark as a single competitor. He became Intercontinental Champion twice, by defeating Mr. Perfect and Rowdy Roddy Piper. His first WWE Championship was won, on October 12, 1992, you may ask why do I remember this date, it’s simple, he defeated my all time favorite wrestler “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair. Bret held the WWE title five times while in the WWE. Now we come to the biggest event in his career the Montreal Screw-Job. Let’s lay all the cards on the table, Bret Hart had already signed a contract with WCW, was also schedule to face Shawn Michaels at Survivor Series and appear on WCW Nitro a week later. I love the history of Pro-Wrestling and this why I am making the following statement. Throughout the history of pro-wrestling no wrestler has ever left their wrestling territory as champion to join another territory. Why should Bret be any different? (Canadian readers please don’t crucify me)Let me explain why Bret couldn’t take that title to WCW, on one episode of Monday Nitro the WWE women’s Champion Medusa, throw her title in a trash can. We all believe that Bret Hart would never do such a dastardly act.  If WCW got their hands on that title, they would be able to claim that they had the Undisputed or the un-beaten WWE Champion on their roster. This would have changed the landscape of Pro-wrestling. And that’s all I am going to say about that!

Bret Hart & Bill Bill Goldberg
Let’s continue the history lesson on wrestling. Bret was considered a baby face during the beginning of his WCW career, he then later turned heel when he helped Hulk Hogan defeat Randy “Macho Man” Savage, thus becoming a member of the NWO. His first Championship in WCW was the United States Championship; he held this title five times. He also held the WCW Tag Team Title with Bill Goldberg. Bret Became a WCW champion twice, before his wrestling career came to an end. During a match with Bill Goldberg, Bret suffered a severe concussion. He continued to wrestle for nine more months until his body couldn’t handle it anymore, and he suffered a major stroke. Bret Hart battled back from all of these challenges and returned to wrestling, but not as an active wrestler, but as a GM on Raw. Bret was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2006. Now he can truly say he is the best there was, the best there is and the best there ever will be.
