People say Bret is old and bitter, but in reality, Bret has every right to criticise anything related to pro wrestling, because he was ahead of his time.
Bret said that when Vince crowned him as the WWF Champion, he wanted to speak with him every day, to see him every day and Bret wasn't comfortable with that.
He was the absolute definition of a professional wrestler, but he lacked one thing and that was apparently politics.
Something Shawn did better and that's why he always gets more credit than Bret.
Bret was always serious, always professional.
Whenever Jim Neidhart, The Bulldog, Owen or Pillman were cracking jokes and having laughs, Bret Hart would be the only one to remain serious and command respect.
Over the years he lost so much.
-lost the WWF Championship to his real life rival in Canada by being screwed by his boss
-lost his spot in the company with Vince booking a midget to come out dressed as Bret Hart to his own wrestling entrance the night after
-lost his brother Owen by the company who screwed him
-lost his career because of inexperienced Goldberg
-suffered a stroke in 2002
-got diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2016
-got diagnosed with skin cancer in 2020
And after all ..
..after all, I see people hating on him, just because of his opinions on variety of aspects in wrestling with wrestling "fans" neglecting all the hardships he suffered and overcame.
So I made this thread as an appreciation to Bret Hart's legacy.
A true inspiration and one of the absolute best!
