Who is Bret Hart?
Bret Hart is a Canadian writer, actor, and a retired professional wrestler, currently signed with WWE under a Legends contract. A member of the Hart wrestling family and a second-generation wrestler, he has an amateur wrestling background, wrestling at Ernest Manning High School and Mount Royal College. Along with his nickname "The Hitman", Hart was known by the monikers "The Excellence of Execution", "The Best There Is, The Best There Was and The Best There Ever Will Be" and "The Pink and Black Attack".
Hart joined his father Stu Hart's promotion Stampede Wrestling in 1976, and made his in-ring debut in 1978. He gained popularity and championship success throughout the 1980s and 1990s in the World Wrestling Federation, where he helmed The Hart Foundation faction. He left for World Championship Wrestling following the controversial "Montreal Screwjob" in November 1997, where he remained until October 2000, achieving much success despite his creative handling being widely criticized. Having been inactive from in-ring competition since January 2000, owing to a December 1999 concussion, he officially retired in October 2000, shortly after his departure from the company. In a publication that year, WCW described Hart as "universally respected by other wrestlers", and "perhaps the greatest pure wrestler ever to lace up a pair of boots."
