Bret's Mum, Helen is from New York. Although being a great and loving mum and wife to wrestlers, she isn't that enthusiastic in all the wrestling!
Unfortunately Bret recently divorced his wife of many years, Julie. Bret and Julie have four beautiful children: Jayde (15), Dallas (14), Alexandra Sabrina A.K.A Beans (10) and Blade (8). Blade is in the above picture with his dad, Bret.
Not only has Bret had a great pro career, but he was also very successful in amateur wrestling. While attending Ernest Manning High School in Calgary, he won the city and provincial championships in three different weight classes: 145, 154 and 177 lbs.
Bret wasn't the best student at school. His favourite
subject was English, which he displays with his great writing and speaking
talent. At 14 years of age, Bret had no interest in becoming a pro wrestler,
but instead wanted to be a film director. He began to pursue that career
at the Mount Royal College of Film, but after a year or so, Bret realised
that his dream was to become a professional wrestler. He traded the movie
reels for the wrestling ring and has never looked back.
I think that I am not the only one that thinks that that was a good choice!

column for the Calgary Sun and a column called "Straight from the Hart"

Although Bret angled against America back in 1997, Bret really has nothing against America because his Mum is American and he holds dual citizenship for both Canada and the US.
Bret is no doubt one of the greatest wrestlers in the history of Pro Wrestling. He is known for his accurate, text book execution of every move, hence the name 'Excellence of Execution' which Gorilla Monsoon bestowed on him. Bret possesses an unlimited arsenal with which to flatten any opponent. Although Bret is not beyond more ruthless tactics to win. Bret is currently a heel, but he is a better and should be a face. But he rulz no matter what.
Bret has been around wrestling all his life. His house
was full of students and Bret's dad Stu was also a wrestler. At age six,
Bret was helping in the Stampede promotion, helping with music and lighting.
Bret's first pro match was in 1978. He came up with the gimmick of wearing sunnies and leather. He adopted the colours pink and black and have stuck with them all through his career. Bret did not only wear the sunnies to look good, but also to hide his nervousness. After a great career in Stampede Wrestling in Calgary, Bret joined the WWF in 1984.
(Bret and his brothers in 1983)
Bret was the greatest wrestler the WWF has ever had and they will never have another like him.
Early in his WWF career, Bret was mainly a tag team wrestler, but he showed he had the makings of becoming a true champion. He teamed with his brother in law, Jim 'Anvil' Neidhart to form The Hart Foundation. They were managed by Jimmy Hart. Although The Hart Foundation were not the most popular team in the WWF, no one could deny that they were winners.
(The Hart Foundation 1988)
On January 26th 1987, Bret won his first WWF title when, along with Jim Neidhart, The Hart Foundation defeated The British Bulldogs: Davey Boy Smith and the Dynamite Kid. The Hart Foundation held the belts for 10 months, before losing them to Rick Martel and Tito Santana on October 27 1987.
Bret began his rise as a singles wrestler by lasting 36 minutes in the WWF's first Royal Rumble in 1988. He then became face and dumped Jimmy Hart as a manager.
The Hart Foundation then won the Tag belts for the second time when they defeated Demolition on August 27, 1990 at the SummerSlam.
Bret then began battling with the IC Champion Mr Perfect (Curt Hennig) in some classic scientific matches. He beat Hennig for the title at SummerSlam '91 which was August 26th.
Bret won the 1991 King of the Ring.
He lost the Title to the Mountie on January 17 1992. Bret won the IC belt for the second time from Roddy Piper at Wrestlemania VIII, that nearly set off a fued between the two friends. Bret lost the title to Davey Boy at the 1992 SummerSlam in London.
Bret won his first of five WWF World titles from Ric Flair on October 12, 1992 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Bret Hart beat Shawn Michaels by submission at Survivor Series 1992. With his Mum Helen and Dad Stu watching on, Bret forced Razor Ramon (Scott Hall) into submission at the 1993 Royal Rumble.
Bret lost the World title to Yokozuna in the main event at Wrestlemania IX, after Mr. Fuji threw salt in his face.
Bret won his second King of the Ring crown on June 13, 1993. After the match, he was attacked by Jerry Lawler, who piledrived him on the steps. Bret lost to Lawler by a reverse decision at SummerSlam '93, when he was ruled to have used excessive force with the sharpshooter.
Bret was involved in one of the most bizarre finishes in wrestling history when he and Lex Luger co-won the the 1994 Royal Rumble. Hart and Luger got tangled in the ropes and went over the ropes, they hit the floor at the same time. Bret and Owen split up on the same card.
Both Luger and Hart recieved shots at WWF Champion Yokozuna at Wrestlemania X. Bret wrestled twice on the card. First, he was pinned by Owen at 20:21. Owen spent most of the match working on Bret's left leg. He looked like a beaten man when Yokozuna climbed to the second rope for a "banzai" drop. Bret rolled out of the way and scored the pin at 10:32 for his second WWF World title.
Owen challenged Bret to a title match. Bret would beat him many times.
Bret had brother Bruce in his corner, while Owen had Niedhart, for a steel cage showdown at SummerSlam '94. Bret won it in 33:21
Bret and former WWF champion Bob Backland had been friends until Backland turned into a crazed rulebreaker in July 1995. They battled in a submission match at the Survivor Series with the stipulation that Bret could only win with a sharpshooter and Backland with a chicken wing. Meanwhile, Bret won onesided matches against Neidhart.
The Backland-Hart match was a classic. Bret was seconded by Davey Boy Smith, Backland by Owen. Each man was given a towel to throw in if he felt if his man wanted to give up. When Bret was knocked unconcious and Backland caught him in a chicken wing, Owen tricked his mother into throwing in the towel. Helen Hart said tht she couldn't stand Bret suffer.
