Bret Hart is recognized as one of the most technical wrestlers in the history of WWE and pro-wrestling in general, as well as having achieved enormous popularity during the 1990s. Following the controversial 1997 Montreal Screwjob, he moved to WCW, where he remained until October 2000.
World Championship Wrestling described him as "universally respected by fellow wrestlers" and "perhaps the greatest pure wrestler to ever wear a pair of boots". The Canadian champion returned sporadically to the ring between 2004 and 2006 and then in 2010, winning his last title to the delight of the public.
In addition to being a seven-time world champion, Bret was also the winner of the Royal Rumble match in 1994 and the only one to win the King of the Ring tournament twice (in 1991 and 1993). Hart was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2006 and 2019 (as a member of the Hart Foundation).
In addition, Bret also presented the major title of All Elite Wrestling a few years ago, appearing in the rings of the company of the Khans with the title of heavyweight champion, then finished for the first time alongside Chris Jericho.
Bret Hart is a true legend
Apparently, the "retired" life would not like The Hitman that much, with Bret Hart having in fact taken a few minutes, in the past few hours, to announce to his fans and followers how he intends to open a bar in the short term.
Calgary, Canada, with the name The Hitman, his nickname and brand recognized throughout the world for years. This is the tweet of the legendary Canadian athlete son of Stu Hart: "Join me this February at Hitman Bar in Calgary Canada finally opening!
A place to get together, eat a great meal, live, laugh and celebrate. Please follow the restaurant and bar. New details coming soon about the opening: it's coming!!! As it turns out, Bret's isn't the first stunt by a wrestler to invest in the restaurant and bar market, with Hulk Hogan opening his Tampa Bay, Florida venue in 2012 and another venue in 2020.
Seth Rollins also invested a lot of money in a club a few years ago, as did Cesaro. WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross recently stated that he'll be content never to talk about the infamous Montreal Screwjob incident. “I hated that son of a b**ch.
If we never talk about that [Montreal Screwjob] again ever in my life, I’ll be very content … Having to relive it again and again, and then Conrad and I, he showed some interviews this time. Me interviewing Vince, and [then he said], ‘Bret screwed Bret.’ Well, what were you thinking when you said that?”
