WWE Legends: Bret Hart Interview
By Jon Robinson
The Hart Foundation, Vince McMahon, alcohol and a strip club. Sounds like a recipe for a riot. But to legendary "Hitman" Bret Hart, this combination led to one of the craziest off-camera moments in what Hart calls the "cartoon world" of professional wrestling.
On Friday, March 6, 2009 Bret was interviewed by UK based life coach and motivational speaker, Elliott Kay. Elliott specializes in self development talks, both for the individual and in the corporate setting. He hosts the UK radio show Inspire A Nation. We'll post a link when the interview is available.

The Hitman versus ‘The Wrestler’
The Wrestler is being lauded as the definitive portrayal of pro wrestling, but I submit that’s only because no one has asked a real wrestling champion about it—until now. In the movie, Randy “The Ram” Robinson was a main-eventer who sold out Madison Square Garden. So was I. The movie opens with a montage of clippings and event posters eerily similar to the ones in my personal collection. I lived that life for real. I liked the movie, and I’m disturbed by it.
Here it is, the long awaited epilogue to the award winning, critically acclaimed Wrestling With Shadows. Still widely considered the best wrestling film ever made - because it's all real! - this special, limited collector's edition 10th anniversary set includes a second documentary, The Life & Death of Owen Hart, never before released on DVD, Bonus footage includes an exclusive in-depth interview with Bret Hart, candid and revealing, as he looks back over a decade, and a provocative interview with director Paul Jay,
"His appeal was simple: in a surreal world dedicated to a uniquely haphazard and comically inept breed of pretense, Bret Hart made everything seem real...."
