For me, he is clearly the Excellence of Execution.
This Canadian have face so many opponents and he has won so many belts but one of his biggest fight was his fight against prostate cancer. The same cancer that my dad had. And so far, so good for Bret. But my Chronicle on this very early Monday morning is to let me present to you this inspiring gentleman.
I present you mister Bret “The Hitman” Hart.
Actually, as you may know by now, my family and myself are big wrestling fans “even my sweet classy mom”. Back in the days (the eighties and the nineties), my father brought us to see wrestling show “especially my brother Donnie” at the Paul Sauvé center and the famous Forum. In the mid 80’s, I was still to young to follow them in 86 but my brother make sure to explain to me what he did witness with passion and joy in his eyes.
It was a tradition to watch wrestling all together saturday night on tv or we were renting the video cassette at our local video store. Actually, wrestling brought our family closer for this small moment. I quickly was mesmerized by two men that wore pink tight pants. By the way, blue is my favorite color.
They seem very confident and a little cocky but not in a obnoxious way. I watched my big brother jumping and being happy to see them. I was the ultimate little sister that wanted to love and mimic everything her big brother do.
The Hart Foundation were fighting Demolition Man and it was a two vs three tag team match. For me, I was wondering how the HF will beat those monsters. I was wishing in my little heart please god may they beat those big really red tongue guys. And my wish came true.
After, Bret went solo. I enjoyed his matches and his promo even if he didn’t consider himself the best on the mic. I always like his sincerity and authenticity. For me his matches were like watching a nice ballet. Especially when he was wrestling Curt Henning aka Mr. Perfect.
The drama, the move and the chemistry was there. His matches with Piper, Bulldog, Austin and of course Shawn Michaels were all magical and spectacular.
Bret made his matches a true cinematographic piece of art. He is the Picasso of wrestling. I will call him The Artist.Sorry Jean Dujardin.
He was the one of the guy champion in the locker room. A true leader. Not like some blond, steroid, pray and eat your crappy vitamins SOB. I can be pretty harsh in my words. Back to Bret.
Later on, Bret went solo and as I grew older, I admire more and more this man. Outside of wrestling, he was truly a very nice guy that is still always thankful for his fans and the nice career he got. And he is the ultimate badass.
A guy that stand up for himself and for his friends, his family legacy and for the underdogs is a total badass in my eyes.
He didn’t have it easy inside the wrestling and outside of it. But he always manage to get up and keep fighting.
He is not perfect and as everybody did some mistakes but if you have the chance to read his autobiography “even a non wrestling fan will fall in love with his writing style and pure honesty”, you will discover a beautiful human being that love and clearly understand wrestling, life, love, adore his children, admire his father and like every son, he wanted to please his father.
Stu Hart is a legend in Canada and I’m pretty sure his father was really proud of his son. So do I and a million of fans all around the world.
Still in his book, you will witness he’s have some complicated relationships with a few members of his family.
And you will read about some beautiful relationship he got with a few of his siblings and his brothers in the wrestling world. He was a true big brother. Always there to protect and defend his family by blood or by wrestling blood.
Life on the road wasn’t easy at all and Bret did talk about it in a pretty damn honest way.
Une petite paranthèse, while reading his book, you have the feeling you are having a beer with him while he is telling to one of the kind stories. Correction , I felt like I was drinking a nice glass a white wine and him a nice Kilkenny beer for him.
Again and again, I can talk or write for hours about Bret. I will leave it for other posts. But here a nice video about Bret. Watching it, I still get some goosebumps.

To Bret, keep fighting and you are truly The Best there is, The Best there was and The Best there ever will be.
