Bret Hart’s Career

Bret started his wrestling career with his father’s promotion, leading him to WWF. Throughout his tenure, Hart was the company’s face during the New Generation Era.

He gained immense success alongside The Hart Foundation, and he teamed with Jim Neidhart. He developed his gimmick and signature style in his tag team run. His elegant wrestling style earned him the nickname ‘The Excellence of Execution.’

Bret went on to win the tag team titles and then the Intercontinental title. He won the gold by defeating Ric Flair, which was not televised.

Things started going downhill when the two-time Hall of Famer began feuding with Shawn Michaels. He also got a contract offer from WCW, which created a disparity between his loyalty and worth.

Vince McMahon eventually told him to take the WCW contract, which led to the famous Montreal Screwjob incident. Bret was supposed to win his last match against Shawn Michaels, and Vince promised the same.

However, that did not happen, which led to one of the most controversial wrestling moments ever.

His tenure with WCW did not go well by any means either. Hart kept on getting injured by Goldberg, and due to concussions, his contract was terminated, and he ultimately retired in 2000.

In 2005, Bret and Vince fixed their issues, and he has made a lot of appearances in WWE to date. He even came back for some storylines after signing a contract in 2009.
