The simple thought of ‘The Hitman’ and Daniel Bryan wrestling is enough to give fans goosebumps. Their technical and submission wrestling prowess is unmatched. Hart put on some brilliant matches throughout the 90s against the likes of Stone Cold, Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, and Mr. Perfect.

Bret Hart is truly is ‘The best there is, there there was, and the best there ever will be.’ He comes from the legendary Hart Dungeon and surely would’ve had a longer career if Goldberg hadn’t broken his neck. It’s no easy feat main eventing three WrestleManias!

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter presents the ‘Bryan Danielson Award’ to the Best Technical Wrestler every year. Isn’t that legendary? Having an award in your name. The best part? Bryan is still an active competitor. In fact, Bryan was already a big star on the wrestling scene before his WWE debut.

Both Bret Hart and Daniel Bryan were self-made superstars. They were often not Vince McMahon‘s first choice, but their wrestling ability and fan power made them multiple time World Champions. Hart’s injury caused him to retire in 2000, while Bryan had just started his career in 1999.

We can only make this match happen in WWE 2K now, but the ‘what if’ scenario is beautiful for a wrestling fan. Think about it, share your thoughts in the comments!
