Bret Hart is unanimously recognized as one of the most technical performers in wrestling history, having reached the peak of his popularity in the first half of the nineties. The Canadian has won titles in five decades, from 1970 to 2010, amassing the beauty of 32 kingdoms.
In addition to being a seven-time world champion, he was also the first WCW World Heavyweight Champion to be born outside the United States. Stone Cold Steve Austin, who wrestled Hart in numerous pay-per-views, inducted him into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2006.
In 2019, Bret re-entered the HOF along with Jim Neidhart as a member of the 'Hart Foundation' According to rumors, 'The Hitman' seems to be very close to returning to WWE. However, the FTR have expressed a desire for Bret to become their new manager at AEW.
At Survivor Series 1997, Vince McMahon signaled for referee Earl Hebner to prematurely ring the bell in the WWE title main event between Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels.
Bret Hart is a wrestling legend
It goes back to December 1995 - nearly two full years before the Montreal Screwjob.
Bret Hart had signed with WCW, jumping ship from WWE. She took the Women's Championship and threw it in the trash on Nitro. While she later admitted that Eric Bischoff coerced her into doing it, Vince McMahon was on constant alert.
The two-time WWE Hall of Famer analyzed the moment of difficulty AEW is going through: “At this point in the season, there are a lot of events that AEW is having to compete against. Either way, it's odd that All Elite Wrestling fails to attract even 500,000 spectators for Friday night shows.
I would say it is quite alarming. I don't know exactly how much they spend on making shows and how much they earn from advertising. However, I don't think TNT executives are happy with the results so far." Over the last few episodes of AEW programming, several hints have been dropped that could indicate that the technical wizard is on his way to Tony Khan's company.
It all started when FTR fired Tully Blanchard as their manager. The Young Bucks said that the former AEW Tag Team Champions could get a new manager who is 'the best there is,' although it wouldn't matter in a rematch against them.
Shawn Michaels revealed years later that Triple H gave Vince McMahon the idea of "bringing business to Bret Hart" Although Bret Hart was never likely going to do what Madusa did, Vince McMahon couldn't take the chance.
