Top 10 Moves of the Hitman
Happy 55th birthday to one of the world’s all-time great professional wrestlers, Bret “Hitman” Hart.
Bret was a 5-time WWE Champion, 2-time WWE Tag Team Champion, 2-time WWE Intercontinental Champion, 2-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion, 4-time WCW United States Champion, and WCW Tag Team Champion.
He also won the 1994 Royal Rumble the King Of The Ring tournament in both 1991 and 1993.
Bret Hart was also involved in perhaps the most controversial match in the history of WWE, the 1997 “Montreal Screwjob” against Shawn Michaels in which Vince McMahon purportedly double-crossed Hart, going against the “script” and costing him the WWE Championship. Hart was on his way to WCW after the match, and Vince didn’t want to risk Hart showing up on WCW TV with the WWE title belt. So, the “screwjob” took place, giving Shawn Michaels the championship and leaving Bret Hart confused and angry. When Hart realized what happened, he spit in Vince’s face and apparently punched him out backstage. This event was either the greatest example of wrestling turning “real” or the greatest work in the history of the business.
In 2006, Bret Hart was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame.
And now, enjoy the Top 10 Moves of Bret Hart…
